HOMAGE TO MONET 5: Impressionism in a Japanese Garden
I have always loved Claude Monet's impressionistic paintings of his garden at Giverny. He created a whole new way of looking at the world that is less oriented toward detail and more oriented toward capturing a feeling of being immersed in a lovely, sunlit environment. That is the feeling I strived to capture in this photograph.
I was in Seattle, Washington's Japanese Garden in late October, when the Japanese Maples were scarlet. When these maples reflected in the quiet pond, I was achingly reminded of Monet's lovely work. The lily pads are tattered after a season in the sun, lending them a more impressionistic feel. The wind-rippled surface of the pond appears painterly.
