Cherry Blossoms

I wanted to try and visually represent the feeling of a spring morning; a crisp breeze flowing through fresh blossoms, collecting and mixing a momentary perfume that you hold in a breath, trying to record it's unique notes and subtle tones.   Memories.  

I shot these images by flipping my lens backwards and holding it up to the camera body.   This method turned my 24-70mm into an extreme macro with a very shallow depth of field.   I used a slower shutter speed to allow the blossoms to blur slightly in the wind.
