Pagoda

I was determined not to over pack my lenses for this adventure so I only had my Yashica 55mm macro, a CPC 28mm macro, and a Yashica 135mm 2.8.  Great for flowers but crap for architecture shots.  Little did I know that they had added some cool stuff to the gardens since I first went there two years ago and I also didn’t know that 90% of the flowers would be dead and about 50% of the trails closed due to storm damage.

So I adapted, improvised, and made-do.  I did crop this to 16×9 for amusement more than anything else.  If you are going to polish a turd at least try and make it a shiny turd.  Used SilverEfx Pro then screwed around with the image to hide the majority of the flaws that obviously were resultant of poor gear than photographer ineptitude.
