FDR Memorial in Bloom

Ever since my Waimea Canyon photo excursion, I've been playing around with adding people into my photo compositions in order to illustrate perspective. Although the fountains were not running when we arrived at the FDR Memorial, they turned on unexpectedly halfway through our visit. I couldn't resist trying to capture the blooming blossoms with one of the many waterfalls throughout the memorial, but needed to create perspective to show the height and power of these water features. Once I added my mother admiring one of the waterfalls into the frame, I created the right juxtaposition in the image. Plus, doesn't she look cute wearing her over-sized UCLA stadium jacket?
