THEME DAY: Paths/Passages



The path across this bridge leads to the bamboo forest at the Japanese Gardens.  Today is City Daily Photo Theme Day. My Daily Photo friends around the world are posting their interpretation on this theme.  Please give 'em a look.

Beautiful pathways! Especially the bamboo-arch!

V, I LOVE your photos BUT I especially enjoy your musical pairings with them. Always first rate!

Two beautiful photographs. Japanese gardens are always so wonderfully peaceful. A beautiful bridge but I'm particularly drawn to the path under the bamboos. I can hear them swaying in the breeze. Don't you just love the sound of bamboo in the wind?

very reminiscent of Monet's Garden at Giverny, beautiful picture

Here are two things near to my heart and I have been there and seen the native things. Japanese bridges like this except very long span some water at Matsushima. And the bamboo thickets are everywhere. So much so that I am now planning on planting some clump bamboo to enhance my backyard. I love the stuff and it does so much more for the environment than any other kind of grass.

Lovely choice for the theme day post.

I missed the theme day somehow but I wrote in my Memories blog about the roads of my youth and how they were to travel in the winter time.

Where are the water lillies? I'm refleting on the bridge of course, which would be my choice of path. Red is the colour this week.

Great choice, V.! The red bridge and its reflection are gorgeous!

Hilda said...

Such beautiful photos, Virginia! That little red bridge really stands out in the photo and the bamboo forest looks so peaceful. I love the sound of the wind blowing through bamboo and it must be wonderful there on a breezy day. Happy Theme Day!

Ce petit pont de bois est très joli: this is your homework before Tuesday, Virginia!

Laurie said...

Wonderful, V. I knew yours would be inspiring!

marley said...

I like them both but the second is my fav. It reminds me of the TV series Lost!

Ken Mac said...

that view is deluxe! The forest I mean..

Bob Crowe said...

I get a similar feeling in the Japanese garden here. How can something so red be so peaceful?

Bibi said...

Monet would have been proud of you. This is lovely.

Scott Johnson said...

Very stunning! So tranquil.

The red bridge is exquisite. Well done V!
