Every now and then I like to reconnect with nature in some way. Luckily for me, there's a botanical garden right next to my place in Oakland by Lake Merritt. It's a public garden filled with lots of flowers, trees, shrubs, veggie patches, waterfalls, ponds, bonsai trees and more. I had a free afternoon so, I packed my new Canon Rebel and tripod to take advantage of the sun and snap a few shots.
Scroll down for shots of the lovely garden and outfit looks by yours truly:
