Since it has been raining heavily and non-stop in Seattle lately, I am regularly reminded of the day we walked around Vancouver’s Chinatown. We were pulling our luggage and carrying our cameras, in the rain! but determined to shoot the neighborhood. In the distance we saw just a sliver of the Sun Yat-Sen Chinese Garden and set out for it, not knowing what it was but hoping to find something photogenic and maybe a roof to get under.
Instant karma: the beautiful autumn colors and well maintained, traditional elements made for magical photos. It was well worth our effort, including unbearably chilly hands, against our gear for so long in the cold rain. Next time we are in town, I want a longer visit to see the whole garden, but just not in the cold rain!
