So peaceful. I really dig bamboo forests. Too bad that they are depleting at such a rapid rate.

Per chance, is this a botanical garden in Gainesville, Floria? I spent few happy minutes there photographing great bamboos. Good shot.

This would be a great study in black and white with some contrast adjustments. I like the bike off to the right, helping to balance the guy on the left. Is that bamboo?
