Sakura 桜

The Sakura or flowering cherry trees have started to blossom and this is one of my first attempts this season to capture their beauty, though many are sure to follow. Taken by how these trees, located in the middle of downtown Sannomiya, are contrasted against the concrete and brick inspired me to use the 'toy camera' setting on my LX3 to emulate the atmosphere.


  1. Beautiful! Of the many kinds of sakura, this light pink variety is my favorite! So delicate and fine!

  2. I am fond of this type also, my other favorite is the weeping red/pink variety that bloom in late March.
