Today was just a beautiful day here in Tokyo. The temperature got up to about 65 degrees Fahrenheit. Sun was shining and all is well. I went on a little field trip with the Nishimachi school moms to Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden. Another cherry blossom extravaganza. We had lunch in the park that included a little tea ceremony, pork and rice with a somewhat raw egg, followed by sake (much better) and a few rice crackers. The cherry blossoms were again FABULOUS.
I promised yesterday that I would not post another cherry blossom picture, so instead.... This month's assignment for one of my photo classes is April color. I found this great abandoned lot near the cemetery full of purple and yellow flowers and a couple of old run down houses. I thought the colors were wonderful. Here is my first attempt at this scene which does not do it justice. I am going back there tomorrow - early morning - with a wide angle lens to see if I can't get a better shot. If I do, I'll post it here.
