I figure I'll finish off the set of examples from Lake Harriet that I took on Saturday. This one's of the Peace Garden. For those of you who may be curious, the frogs from yesterday were on the other side of the bridge at the edge of the pond there.
My grandfather Leo was a photographer and photofinisher. One of my greatest regrets nowadays is that I really wasn't interested in photography while he was alive. I would have loved to be able to share that interest with him. Before one vacation I took, however, I did receive one valuable tip from him. Try to create a frame in the photo; it brings interest to the subject. That's what drew me to capture this image. The trees on the side and plants on the bottom create a natural frame through which the garden can be viewed. It would have been even more interesting and dramatic if the tree branches at the top were also silhouetted, but you can't have everything.
