This is what I want. Here’s what we actually have:
The funny part is that it was a “nice” day, warm enough that we left our jackets behind and went for a walk at Chicago’s lovely and historic Osaka Gardens. It was only later, looking at the pictures, when I noticed how gray our nice spring day had been. Did I mention it rained?
I took that second photo to use when I teach art class and we talk about composition. Composition is every where! (the composition I want to show students is in the rock arrangement, not in my photograph itself.)
