      Death of a Sakura

      This photo is one of the first ones I took during this year’s cherry blossom season around Tokyo. I went out early one morning to Shinjuku Park, where thankfully several trees had already begun to bloom quite beautifully. For whatever reason, this full flower had fallen off and landed on the soft green moss beneath....
