For the past week or two, my camera was with Nikon, being repaired for the damage it received during one of Tokyo’s recent snow days. I finally got it back this past Sunday, but Sunday and Monday were too busy to get out and use it again. So this afternoon after some morning duties I took a trip down to Tokyo’s Minato ward to see what I could find. I was lucky enough to run across a small park full of plum blossoms, which gave plenty of opportunity to get my photographer mind back into gear.
Now, I’ll say that I think the plum blossoms are very lovely, and they’re a happy sight as they mean Spring is just around the corner. But to be honest, for me they are practice for the real deal coming in about 4 weeks or so – the Sakura. There are a lot of similarities between the Plum Blossoms and Cherry Blossoms, but there’s just something about the Sakura that draws me in more than any other flower or any other season of the year. What about you? Which do you prefer?
