the blossoms are off the trees

The Sakura cherry trees bloomed early in Portland this year due to our unseasonably warm winter. Then Spring arrived and the winds kicked up and the rain fell and so did the blossoms.  I made it down to the waterfront a couple of times before their demise and here are some of the photos I took with my Hasselblad 500CM and Kodak Portra 160. I will present some photos in 3 parts so that I don’t make each post too long.cherry_Trees_Hassie124

I love living in the Pacific Northwest being close to the mountains and the ocean. My hobbies include photography, travel, reading, biking, walking and gardening. I am an Anglophile at heart and try to visit the UK often. My camera goes everywhere with me.
