Mark your calendars: In two weeks, it will be spring! Or it better be, as that is usually Cherry Blossom season at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. These photos were taken a couple of years ago, and I unearthed them from my hard drive to give you a sneak peak at a season we are all hoping/wishing/praying for. That’s right folks – not only are these not Instagram shots, they were taken with a (gasp!) film camera: my trusty Holga, for double exposures and light leaks galore. Enjoy!

    I absolutely love cherry blossoms. There is a “Botanical Garden” place near where I live, too, so I know what kind of garden extraavaganza you are talking about! 🙂 The picture quality is not clear, but was that the intention?
