Photography: Koukoen waterfall by Risachantag Photography: Koukoen waterfall by Risachantag
One of the water features in Koukoen. I'm glad this photo turned out okay, as the first time I was in Koukoen I tried taking photos of this area with my point-and-click digital camera, and they turned out pretty bad. Now I have a digital SLR camera; Manual exposure for the win. =)


Location: Koukoen (samurai gardens, next to Himeji castle), Himeji, Japan

Becouse people are not expecting a profesional work here, it's nice, we like it, we fave it and show our support to the artist to keep trying and sharing his/her work.

I myself like to see how they improve through time, makes me feel part of it.
