A trip to the Rose Garden and a nursery with a mirrorless camera. Clearly, even f/2 is too wide an aperture for some of these shots. More experimentation is needed. ;-)


Portland’s International Rose Test Garden is a beautiful walk from the NW 23rd neighborhood. I spotted this flower along the way.

Fathers’ Day

For Fathers’ Day, we toured Portland’s International Rose Test Gardens, Jamison Square, and Tom McCall Waterfront Park.

Grandma and Grandpa came along for the fun. Good times!
