Sakura Everywhere

This sakura shot was actually taken quite some ago, 2011 in fact!  I was going through my sakura shots of the past couple years, just to see the difference between how I took my shots then vs. now.  I definitely did not like most of my older shots.. But I thought this was pretty.

Probably won't post anything else till Monday as I have a lot of other (non-sakura related) photos to edit, but I figure this is a good image to end the week with 🙂

No doubt most of you have already seen dozens of sakura (cherry blossom) photos over the last week or two (particularly if you follow other Japanese photographers), so I hope you're not too "blossomed-out" :p

This was taken last weekend while out with friends.  It's traditional in Japan during the cherry blossom season to go out for "Hanami" – basically going out to sit under the blossoms and enjoy a meal and some drinks.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hanami

Though the weather started out cloudy with a 50% chance of rain, the skies cleared and when the sun came out I pointed the camera up and grabbed a few shots.  🙂

Have a good day folks!
