Washington Park Aboretum

The light was perfect. A cool breeze lightly drifted throughout the garden. The moment: perfect. I positioned my Nikon at the outer edge of the stone lantern overlooking it all and took the photo, preserving the moment forever.

It is moments like those that motivate me and Mitzy as photographers. Amateurs though we might be, there is something about the capturing of moments in photograph that illuminates life. Perhaps it is just the thrill of a perfect shot, but we like to think that each photo has the ability to prolong a moment; immortalizing it forever in the frame. We set out on April 8th, 2017 in pursuit of these moments and we found plenty.

Though the weather proved to be temperamental/ unreliable (typical for a Seattle spring), the breaks in the rain and the shifting of the sky above provided a unique setting for our venture into the Washington Park Aboretum.

The rain stops and offers up a opportunity for a photo of clouds, Sun and trees; a perfect combo.

With its beautifully landscaped hills and landscapes, the Aboretum is the perfect reprieve for those wishing to get away from the city without actually leaving it. Countless plant species populate the park grounds and we seized the opportunity to grab a few shots when we could.







After awhile, Mitzy and I wandered over to the Japanese Garden, the aptly named oasis   attached to the Aboretum. We paid the very fair admission price of 6 bucks each, and stepped through the entrance and into the perfectly manicured zen.

The element-worn stone lanterns scattering the garden proved a wonderful subject to photograph

One word to describe the views? Picturesque.
