Japanese Garden, Roger Williams Park Zoo RI
Last week Lynne and I were awake at 4:30 AM on Saturday. No, we were not still awake from the night before. We were getting ready to drive to Providence, and help out at the 2009 Free to Breathe fund raiser 5k run / 1k walk for Lung Cancer. The run/walk is organized by Mr. Daniel Ouellette and his wife Sheila. Aside from waking up well before dawn, the day was surprising fun, and the event was quite successful. The mayor of Providence showed up to commend the Ouellettes with certificates for their contributions to the community and the charity.
The weather was quite nice, and although it was overcast at times, once the event finished up, the sun came back out in full. The walk took place in beautiful Roger Williams Park Zoo, and I had a chance to steal away and step in lots of goose poop take some nice October foliage pictures in their scenic park. I doubt this will be the only one I upload from the day, but I thought it would be nice to break up my DC photographs with some Foliage.
Nothing too fancy here in terms of post production. Some detailed masking, and some minor color corrections. My original exposure was pretty fantastic, so this one wasn’t very hard to pull good detail out of in one pass.
