    A while ago I went to the Japanese Tea Garden in San Francisco hoping to get some good shots of the cherry blossom trees. When I got there, I was a little disappointed because the trees were still in their blooming stage. So, I made the best of it. I was using my 50mm f1.8 and 55-200mm f4-5.6 VR glass that day. C&C are welcome.

    Ya, same here, but it was busy that day and that was the only chance I had with no one on top of the bridge. I was waiting like 15min and saw a chance when someone was getting off the bridge, she just happen to get on it the same time...
    It was taken at f19 1/6.

    At the risk of sounding like a moron, I gotta say in all honesty, I'm not certain I would recognize that as a bridge without it being put into context with the person there, at least at that angle/crop. It almost looks like one of those big water wheel things they had attached to mills to grind stuff.

    Lol. Actually, now I look at it and it does look like one of those big water wheels. I don't know what they are called also...
    Well, 1,2,6, and 9 I was using my niffty fifty. The rest I was using my 55-200mm f4-5.6 VR.
    The place is called "Japanese Tea Garden" and it is inside the Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, CA. You pay like $5 to get in and walk around this little section of the park and in the middle of the park they have women dress in Edo time serving you tea and crackers. Kinda cool.
