With a cherry on top

Last week, I passed the park with the Japanese sakura trees very early in the morning.

It was minus degrees, frosty and very cold —

But that didn’t stop this photo shoot (the model had bare feet)!

Cold feet.jpg

Later on that week, I returned on a sunnier day

Just in time for a wedding photo shoot under the blossoms.

You can’t help but smile

Underneath that candy floss canopy of flowers!

(I’m only posting once this week as I’m away filming at the end of the week.)

  43. It really is an amazing sight and I love how the rest of the world joins in celebrating Japanese cherry blossom time – we were in a hotel in Bangkok this week, the foyer was filled with a massive fake cherry blossom tree, but it was so realistic it had to be touched to confirm this. Your photos are awesome. I would stand underneath with bare feet too!
