Sakura Rain

Looking down the park, the sakura color was really nice in the light rain.

With the rain in Tokyo coming after such a warm day yesterday, the Sakura trees were having a hard time figure out whether to bloom or fall. It looks like this coming weekend may see the start of some nice sakura fubuki shots.

This was a reflected image off the ground.

    The last pic is awesome!
    It has an anime touch that makes it cool, and the petals are shiny 🙂

    http://bit.ly/bMg3wE The rain vs the sakura. A lovely backdrop. And I agree w/Neksus it does have an anime feel to it. Sure is nice that you have a park so close to home so you really don’t have to go far for great pictures. The reflective image photo gives off an eerie effect. This one would make for some great special effects. maybe movie making is in your future. What do you think?

    we had 2 inches of snow covering the ground Monday morning when I woke . . . didn’t expect that.

    I would be walking around there in a modern day version of the Sound of Music. Pretty.

    Ok, wallpaper version of the last pic!!

    Never thought to start a wallpaper section? Some are really deserving that…

    1. shibuya246 says

      That is a good idea. What size do people want for wallpaper? 1920px? 1280px?

      1. Neksus says

        Thank you! Good news for us 🙂
        I think that 1920px is good enough.

        1. shibuya246 says

          Have now uploaded these to a new folder on Flickr. There are about 70 pics all at 1920px wide. Let me know if there are any problems.

          I will probably place a link somewhere at the top of this site for other wallpaper that is available as well.
