Springtime in the Imperial Palace gardens, Tokyo:
I liked this picture as well as your talk at IPMU.
Are these in Tokyo, Kyoto or elsewhere?
There are a lot of Imperial Gardens…
Very nice textures.
Neal: it does say Tokyo in the post.
Your photo really makes Monet’s genius completely apparent. Remarkable
WOW that is how it looks where I am right now ! – Only not gardens but cattle ponds – I swear!
Fantastic. I did a double, triple, quadruple take. Photo or painting? Surreal for sure.
That’s really cool how the water ripples of exactly the right size closely mimic the impressionist technique…
Nice shot! What time of day was it?
That is an amazing photo. It’s nice to have such a memory kept in .jpg format to refresh the copy kept in our minds from time to time.
By the 19th most of the sakura here (Kyushu) had lost their blossoms in favor of young leaves, and then on the 20th there was a wind storm here to ensure the last few petals had fallen. After walking around today it seems all the sakura are now only green. I dont know if Tokyo had the same weather, but if so, you are extreemly fourtunate to have seen this.
But I bet you allready knew that.
