The word artificial is one of those I rarely use in everyday conversation -- not because I don't encounter much that's "made by people, often as a copy of something natural" (one of its definitions according to Cambridge Dictionaries Online) but, rather, because it never seems to be able to be free of the negativity that comes with its other more value-weighed meaning (i.e., "DISAPPROVING not sincere").
But in keeping with one of my blogging resolutions being to help release my inner Pollyanna, I've sought more positive possibilities when searching for appropriate snaps to use for this week's Photo Hunt. So what I've opted to offer up are aesthetically pleasing artificial versions of something I (also) love to find in nature.
And for those seeking location information, the artificial waterfalls in the photos are to be found at (from top to bottom):-
- Himeji, Japan's Kokoen Garden
- Taipei, Taiwan's Lungshan (Dragon Mountain) Temple
- Tsuen Wan, Hong Kong's Yuen Yuen Institute
Think them (all) pretty? I hope so! :)
