Spring had a false start earlier in the month, but it’s finally warming up, which leads to the cherry trees blossoming in the parks and gardens around NYC. I headed out to Brooklyn Botanic Garden after checking the cherry watch page of their website (a useful tool so you aren’t heading out there for nothing). I headed out there when the majority of trees that were in bloom were located in the Japanese Hill and Pond Garden instead of the Esplanade (which has just started to bloom this weekend).
It was a wonderfully sunny day and the crowds weren’t too bad, just a few wedding and engagement parties getting photos in key spots. Some days you just wish you could have the place to yourself to get images without crowds of tourists or sightseers running around, but such is life around NYC.
Next week: Looking at some shots that I’ve turned into fine art/painting replicas.
