Seeking serenity among cherry blossoms

April 24, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

A couple of weeks ago, I went to photograph the cherry blossoms. It was bittersweet because of my father's recent death. A few years ago, my father and stepmother visited, and the three of us enjoyed going to the Jefferson Memorial while the blossoms were blooming.

The peak bloom is one of my favorite times in D.C. and I enjoyed showing my father around the Tidal Basin. It seemed appropriate to think about him and our fun times together by returning to the Tidal Basin.

I'm pleased at how these images turned out and I really wish that I could share them with my father. He had always been supportive of my photography and I think he would have liked these images.
