Sakura Season

Ueno Park, Sakura Japan

Ueno Park, Sakura Japan

I went out to Ueno Park today to see the Sakura, which are at full bloom. As expected it was crowded with people enjoying the fine weather. There were many groups camped under the trees eating and drinking, with many more walking down the pathway taking photos.

I have a full set of photos I will put up tomorrow. I still haven’t chosen which ones to display. Taking the photos is not the hard part. Choosing which ones get shown and which ones don’t make the cut is the hardest. Need some editorial assistance maybe ^^. I have the Sakura shots down to 74 from the original 400, so will try and pick a final 35 for tomorrow to post.

It was my birthday today, so here is a birthday Sakura shot until I put the rest up tomorrow.

      Not sure you will see much pink in 3 weeks time in Tokyo, but if you travel North (Hokkaido) you might be lucky. You can check online to see when sakura will be blooming in different parts of the country.

    Cool photos. I think you were probably there at the same time as I was. What really impressed me about your photos was how you managed to reduce the visual impact of ALL THOSE PEOPLE, instead of having them in the way of the shot. In the end, I was reduced to just photographing the canopy against the sky. πŸ™‚

    Happy birthday!

      Thanks. I was using a fast lens with the f/stop set at about 1.4 for this shot, so with the focus on the trees, the people in front of the camera just blurred away. πŸ™‚
