cherry blossom festival






so, it's officially cherry blossom festival here on no penny for them.

remember i said i would take my praktica out for a wander and snap some cherry blossoms to see how they would turn out, compared to the digital shots? well here are some - at that point the cherry blossom buds were still a bit timid - on a windy spring afternoon in berlin.

more cherry blossoms to come, be warned.

p.s.: there was a little porcelain teapot, smashed to smithereens, lying underneath on of the cherry trees. i wonder about the story behind that...

These are such beautiful treasures you've collected. Perhaps the tree was the guardian of the teapot until one day there was a gust of wind... The tree feels rather bad about that incident!

p.s. One can never have too many cherry blossom shots. Yay!

Hi Kristina,
I wiil be travelling to berlin from the UK at the end of this month to cycle and photograph the berlin wall trail. I was hoping my trip would coincide with the blossoming of the cherry trees along kirschbaumallee. Will I be too late? I will be in Berlin April 29-May 4.
Lovely photos by the way !
Thanks
Marc

hi marc, sorry i'm so late in getting back to you. it's fairly cold here in berlin at the moment, so with a bit of luck you should still be catching the cherry trees in blossom.
