A shot from Ken Ohrn that captures Vancouver on a sunny day in March:
Two things about photographing cherry blossoms. First, it’s irresistible – rather like taking a shot of a sunset. And the results are often a letdown for the same reason: light isn’t captured in the same way by camera as it is by your eye, and the eye is more closely connected to your brain without the digital third party.
At least that’s my theory. Maybe it’s just that we’ve seen too many photographs of both, or that it’s too much of something unrelievedly delightful – a dessert of only whipping cream.
So as Ken demonstrated above, it’s more interesting to take photographs of people taking photos of people and cherry blossoms.
