Sakura

No doubt most of you have already seen dozens of sakura (cherry blossom) photos over the last week or two (particularly if you follow other Japanese photographers), so I hope you're not too "blossomed-out" :p

This was taken last weekend while out with friends.  It's traditional in Japan during the cherry blossom season to go out for "Hanami" - basically going out to sit under the blossoms and enjoy a meal and some drinks.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hanami

Though the weather started out cloudy with a 50% chance of rain, the skies cleared and when the sun came out I pointed the camera up and grabbed a few shots.  :)

Have a good day folks!
