Dai Ichi Bonsai Club 32nd Show

Last weekend Dai Ichi had their 32nd show at the Ken Nakaoka Community Center in the city of Gardena. I had the opportunity to arrive right as the doors open so I had the floor mostly to myself and the trees. I usually like photographying the trees while no one is around, it gives me the time to see the tree in any angle and how the artist positions the tree for the viewer. Enough with me here are the show trees:

Shimpaku - Tom Vuong

Jasmine - Brian Grant

Ginkgo, Procumbens Nana - Judy Unrine

Bougainvillea - Frank Goya
