Cherry Blossoms

Cherry Blossoms

2012 marks 100 years of the National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington D.C.!  In 1912 a gift of 3,000 cherry trees from Mayor Yukio Ozaki of Tokyo to the city of Washington, DC. was presented to honor the friendship between the United States and Japan.  The trees are so light and airy you just want to get lost in them.  The festival is from March 20 – April 27.

  1. Nice outside of the box approach to go BW on such an obvious color subject! It makes snow of them and I never noticed their star shaped centers until your pics here

    • Thank You! They whole time I’m posting I was thinking: post the b&w or the color? the b&w or the color?! Although they are a dreamy white/pinkish color now, I thought they were more dramatic this way 🙂
