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.
Quite a compliment, CJ.
I love shooting old signs. They make me feel connected to a world gone by.
Ah, me too – I have a few shots stored away. Might be a post in that in the future.
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.
