Seattle Sakura

I have documented these Yoshino Cherry trees at UW in stages for a few years now. All the way from buds to falling petals, in rain and in sun, with hundreds of people and without — all of which could be a whole project in itself. Here are some of my favorite shots of pure blossoms from recent years including this Spring.

Here also is  a little assignment I did for Seattle Weekly.
