Cherry blossoms (not) blooming
Made a dawn patrol trip down to the Tidal Basin this past Sunday, hoping to get a great preview of the sakura before the hordes of tourists arrived to make photographing the blossoms a bit more difficult, but apparently my timing was way off and the pictured blossom was about as good as I could get. I arrived at the Tidal Basin around 6 am and there was hardly anyone there besides a couple of photographers. At 7 am, the hordes started to arrive… 7 am!!! Talk about some serious tourists.
