Your Monday Photo Shoot: The Letter G

"For the true nature of things, if we consider every green tree as far more glorious then if it were made of gold and silver."

-Martin Luther

Monday Photo Shoot: Snap a picture of something beginning with the letter "G". Because I don't think the letter "G" gets nearly as much attention as it should.

-John Scalzi

Here are four views of my favorite (G) spot...LOL...Golden Gate Park. All four of these photos were taken within the Japanese Tea Garden, which is very green in the spring time, with the exceptions of the gorgeous Westeria, Begonia and my favorite Water lilies. I took some of my best photos this year in the park, it's hard not to...it's beauty is stunning. Designed in 1870, by William Hammond Hall, the park is made up of 1,013 acres of landscape stretching 3 miles long and 1/2 mile wide. Whether I am at Stow Lake, the Dutch Windmills, or the DeYoung Museum, I am always only steps away from the Pacific Ocean at Ocean Beach, Golden Gate Park has become my home away from home.

I love that park. My SIL and BIL used to live in an apartment overlooking the park. Lovely place.

Great! I expect you to take me there someday, on the occasion of our momentous meeting in person.

And check it out - I was able to see a larger version of the combined image just by right-clicking it. I didn't know what worked! :)

Beautiful shots, as always.
Despite living on the West coast for a good deal of my life, I never made it to SanFran before making my home on the other coast. Hopefully someday I'll make it there on a visit, and I know now that the Tea Gardens are one place I will have to include.
