This weekend we went up to DC to see the cherry blossoms, even though they weren't quite in full bloom (they will peak Mon-Wed this week, so we had to choose between not quite fully bloomed this weekend and wilting next weekend) and it was unseasonably chilly (not terrible really, except for the wind and my freezing ears). But I am glad we went. I obviously went all Hipstamatic on the cherry blossoms, making an effort to keep switching up the lenses and film to get a variety of photos. I've started to try imagining what a shot would look like in different settings, to get the look I want. I start seeing distorted colors everywhere I look. And it makes me tire of the Hipstamatic a bit and want to take real photos. Nice photos. Not that I didn't get some gorgeous shots (if I do say so myself), but with some of them I like the composition so much and I just wish they had more detail. So I may give it a rest. We shall see.
Oh, and you can see more of my photos over here. I managed to narrow it down to 48 of my favorite, and that wasn't easy! ;)
