Portland under pink fluff, part 2

There is a window of about 3 weeks when the cherry trees bloom in Portland. Some of the most spectacular trees line the SW Waterfront and the Japanese Memorial. Photographers swarm the area trying to get that one iconic photo. Year after year they come down looking for a different angle or a better photo than last year. I must admit that I get a bit sucked in by the pink glow too. I managed a couple of trips down there this year using my Canon digital, my Hasselblad film camera and my pinhole. Here are some of the photos I made with my Hasselblad.

I think next year I’ll head north to the U of W campus because I hear there are some pretty nice cherry trees lining the campus.
