Springtime in Portland is the business. Practically everything in the city gets covered in flowers, including the trees. There’s nothing quite like a backlit cherry tree in full bloom against a bright blue sky. Needless to say, though, days like that are somewhat rare. In March, Portland is still very much in the depths of its rainy season. So a few days ago, on a particularly sunny afternoon, I found myself roaming my friend’s neighborhood, trying to grab shots of the cherry blossoms while the gettin was good.
But after just a few minutes of walking, I realized that this was an occasion for friends. So after a moment of contemplation, a couple of quick texts to the ever-beautiful Meredith Adelaide, and we were off.
A walk around the block and one roll of film later, this is what we had. Quick and easy and awesome.
