I took something like 130 pictures during about two hours in the park. It's not a big park- I'd say smaller than the typical botanical garden back in the states, but it has beautiful architecture and a gorgeous design! The only downside is: we only got one good picture of both of us thanks to a random woman asking us if we'd like her to take our picture!
This first one I actually really love. We were in a prime spot to get a picture of us and a waterfall that is in the park. There was an older Japanese couple taking pictures of each other and I tried to communicate with them an offer to take a picture of them both. I did, and the man offered to take one for us. I said no, it was ok, but he asked again and I obliged. It is really rude to refuse gifts in Japan and I figured this might be along the same lines? So I handed him my camera and tried to show him where to look and where to click to take the shot... completely forgetting I was fully zoomed in.
Next up we have a shot where I set the camera on the ledge in a gazebo to take a self-timed picture of us. Fail. The camera focused on the handle of my purse and completely blurred out everything else in the picture.
I'm sure our photographer will give me a few shots to share with you all here on the blog and eventually I suppose I'll get around to sharing Fukushu En Park- the flowers, the architecture, and all the fun little details from our trip!
How often do you get family pictures done?
Where was one of your favorite shoots?
