This is the next step. This is a yoga-like photography session in a visually stimulating place, a little longer than a yoga class, yet brief enough to fit other things into your day. Learning camera functions sitting in class is one thing; practicing camera skills outside of the classroom is yet another! Get up and join us for In-Person .

If you have not been here yet with your camera, this Explore is not to be missed! Rolling green lawns and colorful showy blooms highlight the San José Municipal Rose Garden. In fact, hardly a day passes when some species is not in full bloom, with more than 3,500 plantings and 189 varieties featured.

San José’s 5 1/2–acre Municipal Rose Garden – a one-time prune orchard – is today one of the most attractive of its kind in the world, drawing thousands of visitors each year. The garden is exclusively devoted to shrubs of the rose family and features over 4,000 rose shrubs with 189 varieties represented. Hybrid–teas comprise 75% of the plantings. These shrubs are characterized by a single high centered bloom per stem.  ~TEU
