Lotus Garden

I don’t know why Lotus Garden is the name of so many Far East restaurants but it may have something to do with the flower being a symbol of purity of mind and body from India to Japan.  Also it is grown in water gardens.

I think the black and white film makes this shot and I like the ‘flattening’ effect monochrome has on the blue sky.  Not even one likes this, but I do ‘cos I think that monochrome pictures shouldn’t just be colour pictures without the colour.
