GOYA Friday - Cherry Blossoms

(Let's pretend it's Friday... Ok?)

This week I decided to take some photos of the cherry tree in my yard, since this is the time they're in full bloom. There's a very narrow window of opportunity for this, as they only stay in bloom for about a week before the petals start to fall and the green leaves start to bud.

I realize these aren't the typical tourist-attracting cherry blossom shots that everyone would expect, but that's ok. I like different. This is my shot of the same cherry tree from this week last year:

Again, not the typical cherry tree shot, and very different from this year's photos as well. This is a self portrait, actually. I wonder what I'll think of to do with photographing this tree next year?

Hello Erin,

We never got to meet at Shrenik and Shivanni's wedding in December in
Kolkata, but I do like the moments that you captured. Shrenik
forwarded me the link to your photos.

I also found myself on your blog and liked the recent picture of your
Cherry Tree. What a brilliant idea!

Hope all's is well at your end.
Best Wishes

I love the idea of picturing cherry blossoms in black and white...or...what is that? C41? Those tones are beautiful. I like using it for portraits:

Your cherry tree pics have so much energy and texture though. It would be interesting to take the same scene in C41 and black and white and color and mix them using photoshop. Or just cutting.
