A few photos from yesterday. I tried not to include too many. It was such a beautiful day though, and its hard to pick which ones to post!
These are steps up to some condos right on the canal. It would be nice to live here, but very pricey I'm sure! These steps with the water and plants look amazing in person. I hope my photos do them justice.
At the top of the steps looking down....
This was at one end of a bridge, they put a curved area at each end and had fountains at each end also. I was able to shoot the fountain, a duck, a paddleboat, both ends and someone standing on the other side of the canal in one photo!
Photo of the bridge from above picture
One of the many fountains and the other side of the bridge.
Another fountain.....this one has 2 shooting fountains on each side too, but to get it all picks up too much of the surrounding area and doesn't do it justice in the photo. (or maybe its just the photographer)
And another fountain!
Self portrait - ha ha! I was actually trying to get a shot of the koi fish and realized I was in the photo too
Fountain in the main part close to the museums. I liked this photo also because you can see the new hotel just built in the background. It's huge, blue reflective glass and beautiful! And look at that blue sky.
I saw these flowers and buds and was fascinated by them. I've never seen them before, but they look like a trumpet somewhat.
The last is one of my favorites. The purple flowers through the pampas grass.
