There is a little Japanese Garden, tucked away in the middle of Lansing Community College's campus, called "Shigematsu Memorial Garden".
From the website:
"The garden provides a peaceful space on campus to stroll, sit, and learn more about Japanese culture. The plantings, including pines, Japanese maples, and cherry trees, have been carefully selected to provide beauty through all four seasons. The garden contains several traditional elements: a dry gravel garden and a water garden with traditional walking paths."
I took this photo using a slow shutter speed (1/4 of a second), and believe it or not - NO tripod! To get this shot, I knelt down on one knee, propped my elbow on my other knee, held my breath, and clicked.
If you happen to be in the Mid-Michigan area, I definitely recommend stopping by the garden! :)
