Let’s Take a Walk

As you may already know, I had been in Portland, Oregon during the Easter long weekend.  Majority of the photographs taken were from my iPhone because we weren’t really doing any touring of the city itself so I felt no need to involve my DSLR in the excursions.  The day before we left, however, we went out to see the rose garden in downtown Portland.  I know what you’re thinking: “these were taken in April and roses don’t bloom until at least June”.  Well, you’re right.  There wasn’t much in terms of any opportunities to photograph roses.  They did, however, have cherry blossoms, still in bloom.  Jackpot.

I’ve got photographs of cherry blossoms up close but never really as part of an overall scene so here it is.  I found this scene to be dominated by the pathway leading from the bottom of the frame, curving towards the trees, and heading off to the left.  It sort of leads the eye on a tourist-like walk.   So I hope you enjoy taking this short walk.
