  1. Oh Helen. The cherry blossoms. The ruins! What a lovely way you have of seeing the world, my friend.

    • I feel a need to make connections between all of these photographs I have, to bring unity to all the disparate parts of my life, since I’ve been on the move so long.

    I love shooting old signs. They make me feel connected to a world gone by.

  3. Isn’t it strange what stands and what dissolves completely? These are beautiful images– it took me awhile to understand the connection.

    • I have a strong connection to cherry blossoms, which actually seem to dissolve when they fall and the rains come. In my old high school there were these a hundred year old ornamental cherries that were so profuse in Spring that pupils would grab handfuls and have blossom fights with them.

      • Ooh. That sounds beautiful. We have plum blossoms here now, which sound comparable– they appear overnight on the branches, then drop like snow.
