Monochrome Weekend: Teahouse


Captured with a Holga 120N and Kodak TX400 film, developed in Diafine. The teahouse pavilion stands in Shiojiri Niwa in Mishawaka, Indiana. More information about this Japanese strolling garden in the American midwest can be found here.

That's an interesting shot, for sure. Indiana seems an unlikely place for a Japanese garden, but when you read why, it makes perfect sense.

I love Japanese gardens. This one looks so charming with the bridge and tea house.

Neat effect.

Looks like you are getting into the Holga; the effect is a little like infra-red film.

Cool, it looks like a postcard! I love the photo!

I've always wanted to try a Holga. Love the way you captured the atmosphere of the tea house.

An unexpected place to find such an oriental scene. Lovely tonality.

Ah, what must be a lovely place to walk - will have to do just that next time I'm up there. Much of a Japanese population in the area? I would expect some students at the universities. Others? (On my photo of the Amish and your question on location - right here in beautiful downtown Loogootee. Lots of Amish in the area; and, yes, a lot of them golf!)
