If you ever get to Portland, Oregon, by all means pay a visit to the Portland Chinese Garden. This is a very intimate garden, pond, and tea house. It is not a large setting but there is a lot to see and photograph (with permission!). If you don't want to shoot it, just relax and enjoy the quiet setting.

This is a shot of the upper windows of the teahouse. Notice the latticework. Do you see some letters there?

Another beautiful shot, Cal. Now that the image is gone, I forget what all letters I saw. M and N is all I can remember now.

In addition to the ones above, I can also see aψ (psi) from the Greek alphabet, reminiscent to the symbol of Poseidon!! Not sure if it makes any sense though :-)

Cal,

A plethora of letters. Even a lazy "E"

I see at least "T", "E", "U", and "H". Good one Cal I will have to keep that place in mind. I have also heard that the Rose Garden is a great place for photos.

Yes, the Portland Rose Garden is a beautiful place, especially in the Summer. The Portland Japanese Garden, another beautiful place is just up the hill from the Rose Garden.

Looks like everyone else saw the same letters as we did! Very challenging picture, Cal

Mugmar! Now there's a name I haven't seen around here for awhile. Don't stay away so long next time!

Thanks all for the comments.
