From the plum garden in my neighborhood
« on: February 26, 2022, 21:27:25 »
About 20 minutes on foot, I can visit this public plum garden called "Ikegami Baien".  It is a good destination for the stroll, because I can get there without depending on any traffic system that are generally crowded, especially during weekends.

This weekend, I found various Japanese plums in the garden in the best states to appreciate.

All images were shot with SIGMA fp and 45/2.8 kit lens.

Beautiful place, Akira.  And beautiful photos as well.

Thank you!  This garden is located in the area where lots of Buddhist temples are gathered.  So, the garden carries somewhat serene atmosphere.
