Plum Blossoms

Cherry blossoms get a lot of press, but plum blossoms are kind of cool, too.

They start opening up in February and wrap up just about now. They’re subtle and delicate.

They’re hard to photograph unless you’ve got skill, gigantic lenses, or (since I don’t have either) a background to contrast against.

Bringing two of my favorite things together, plum blossoms, and lacings of industrial pipes and ducts and girding! It’s an electric power facility.

No, it’s not Fukushima. But it would be so cool if it was . . .
Plum Blossom Shrine
Famous shrine, a bit overrated. I recommend the unfamous ones.

      Cherry blossoms are scheduled for March 25 this year. They always announce it on the news. But those poor little plum blossoms always get ignored. Cherry blossoms are pretty spectacular, though, so it’s easy to see why. Every tree looks like an explosion.
