Hanami 2009 in Tokyo: Cherry Blossom in Yanaka Cemetary at Dusk

First blog post for ages; sorry folks, it has been a busy few weeks of shooting and now I have a lot of work to do to catch up on things. But, it's been a great few weeks. Last night I met up with some people from Flickr at Yanaka Cemetary. Mika [Flickr's 'Greedy Piglet'] organised things and I must thank her so much for introducing me to Yanaka at hanami. I have walked Yanaka many times but never at cherry-blossom time; what a beautiful street this was.

This was shot just as we entered the street and the light was magical. A lovely evening. Thank you so much Mika-san.

  1. La neige des arbres est très agréable.


  2. Good to see a new post from you after a while. I like that you've catch many face expressions in one shot. I like the atmosphere as well.
