I'm going to keep it simple today. This was made near the Japanese Garden in central park of San Francisco, CA. My friend Tammy asked me if I wanted to go to San Francisco so she would reshoot her project and I went with her, her husband and Shane. We were walking around the Japanese Garden when I spotted the bamboo. While I was there, I thought this place was perfect for a samurai photo shoot. Nothing like cosplay but an actually shoot that looks authentic from the 1800's. After the sun went down, we drove down to the piers and Tammy got the picture she wanted and we headed back home.
That samurai shoot is on hold for a little bit.
