Over

Winter's officially over. Though the breeze may still get cold from time to time, there's no denying that winter already bade adieu. Blooms and buds slowly carpet the city, signaling it's spring. 

Spring used to be my favorite season but when I had kafunsho or pollen allergy (yes, I'm turning Japanese), having itchy eyes, constant sneezing, I sometimes wish summer would come immediately after spring. But no matter what, allergy would not stop me from going outside, with mask of course, to take photos and appreciate the season.

Spring is I think the most famous season in Japan. Everyone troops to the park with booze in hands, have a picnic and let themselves drown in a shower of petals, sakura (cherry blossoms) petals, to be more specific. 

I have plans for this season, not definite yet though but I know I'm brave enough to face the attack of the pollens. Yes, I am already taking medicines not to worsen the allergy. 

Everything in the name of photography.

  5. Beautiful Spring photograph surrounded by a sea of flowers. I love the shower of petals from the blooming trees here at my work place every time a breeze blows thru the branches, it smells wonderful... and makes me sneeze too, I also endure the allergies for the beauty!
