Discarded Umbrella & The Last of the Sakura

Shot 24th April 2012

Keen to experiment with my new/old lens today [the 55mm Takumar f/1.8 Pentax lens on my Nikon], I was a bit like a kid in a sweet-shop around our neighbourhood where the last of the late-flowering sakura is falling off the trees. Last night's rain and wind helped a lot of it come down and I have some pics of that to post too.

But this umbrella really caught my eye: hanging outside my mate's parent's butcher's shop near our house, the sakura on the floor, flower pattern on the umbrella. Lovely.

The Gear?
