Floating Cherry Blossom Petals

This Spring toward the end of cherry blossom season my family was out to pick up some dinner, and as we took a shortcut through a local shrine I saw these petals floating in a little basin that had filled with water. The lighting was working well, and I really liked the color and lines added to the scene by the small net draped across the basin. Of course, these little petals are so light they were blowing in different directions, so I had to aid the direction a little bit with my own breath to get it in the light where I wanted it. But I think it’s okay to aid the scene a little when the vision calls for it.
