This colorful little shrub is actually part of the barberry family, not a bamboo at all despite the common name. The leaves sprout a pink to red color before turning green, then turn red/purple before dropping.
“Forever In Our Hearts — James M. “Jimi” Hendrix — 1942-1970”
This Hendrix family memorial gravesite is located at Greenwood Memorial Park in Renton, Washington. Although it’s only 10 miles from where I live, today is the first time I’ve ever visited it.
There were several people visiting, but there was a ten minute lull and I was able to grab several photos. Folks had left several ‘gifts’, ranging from flowers to Zig Zag rolling papers to chalk for leaving a message.
I did this in HDR and some fairly heavy tone mapping. It gave me the look I was after… almost postcardish. Today was a pretty drab day and the original looked pretty much like… well… a drab snapshot.
