Looking up at bamboo

Looking up at bamboo

Japanese Garden, Van Nuys, California.

It was extremely hot at the Japanese Garden when we visited on Monday and there were only a few birds and the plants looked pretty beaten down by the heat. I’d been meaning to try to get some images of the small bamboo grove they have there so these are my first go at it. These are high contrast JPEGs processed in the Ricoh GR. I have the RAWs but I really liked this processing better for these shots.

    1. Good comparison Jonne. It does look like a pipeline and between the stalk’s straightness and the section ring it looked interesting to me. I’ve rarely opened the aperture up on the GR but it does have good enough glass to produce some nice bokeh.
