After running errands yesterday, T and I dropped by at the Ewing and Muriel Kaufmann Memorial Garden. The garden was beautiful! Unfortunately, it wasn’t as serene as I thought it would be. It was in fact a very busy place (at least yesterday). There were at least three different groups taking event photos; one a wedding and the other two were obviously for Quinceañera. Even though it was a public place, I felt like I was being rude if I roam around knowing people are taking pictures for their events. So, I was glad to read this announcement about the upcoming change in the garden’s policy:
“Effective July 1, 2015, portrait photography will be prohibited in the Kauffman Memorial Garden. This applies to individuals, groups, and professional photographers visiting the Garden for the sole purpose of organized photo sessions. These sessions have damaged property and disrupted the peace and tranquility that we want to provide for our guests.
You are welcome to take snapshots of the stunning beauty of the Garden during your visit.”
Below are some of the pictures I took yesterday. We will definitely go back and enjoy the beauty and serenity it promises to its guests.
