Day 299/365: Angles

Going through my images from the Chinese Gardens, I had bypassed this image a few times. Then I looked at it in black & white and it really stood out from the rest! There are so many angles & geometric patterns from the pavers to the rafters, I love it! 🙂

Angles: Nikon D7000; f4.5; 1/100; ISO 1000


Day 298/365: Bonsai

The sculpture and architecture conveyed by a bonsai tree is just amazing. This particular bonsai fig caught my eye in the Chinese Gardens when I was there.

Day 292/365: Textural Trail

The Chinese Gardens were gorgeous and tranquil, but I think my favourite part of the garden were the patterned cobbled pathways or trails that were in & amongst it all. They were stunning to look at, and again, one of my favourite things to shoot, texture!

Day 291/365: Feng Shui

Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese system of aesthetics believed to use the laws of both Heaven and Earth to help one improve life by receiving positive energy. I think this large round outdoor window to the view beyond must be part of the feng shui in the Chinese Gardens because it was certainly breathtaking when it came into view, just begging to be photographed!

Day 290/365: Geometric Beauty

This is the pavilion on top of the hill in the Chinese Gardens. It was so breathtaking, and the architecture is just stunning. There are so many different geometric patterns going on, I had to put up two images to do it justice.

Pavilion: Nikon D7000; f4.5; 1/30; ISO 125

 

Geometry: Nikon D7000; f4.5; 1/160; ISO 1000


Day 289/365: Cascade

This was one of a few cascades in the Chinese Gardens in Darling Harbour. I was very disappointed not to have my tripod to do a really nice long exposure. I did my best to keep the camera stable with my hands and a big rock!

Cascade: Nikon D7000; f14; 1/15; ISO 100
