This beautiful area is usually so crowded with people it’s impossible to get a picture without people in it. Not last weekend.
I’m looking up at these blossoms but what I like about this image is, it almost looks like I’m shooting down at, say, lotus blossoms in a pond – a little bit of trompe l’oeil. It was glorious to finally enjoy a day of nice Spring weather.
I’ve tried to capture the beauty of this tree a few times now, without success, and the Spring petals will be gone soon. Oh, well. Trust me. It’s lovely!
I passed them by, then stopped and went back to ask for their picture. They smilingly assented, commented on the nice Fuji camera, said the picture came out good and told me they were a brother and sister.
