Cherry Blossoms

20130205-085646.jpg
My town in Okinawa boasts the first cherry blossoms in all of Japan. A few weeks ago the trees draped themselves in these tiny bright pink flowers.

The flowers are very ephemeral, and so have by now almost all faded. But pictures remain. This one was taken on an overcast day. I love how against the light grey sky the flowers, branches, and leaves form an almost geometric pattern.
