The cherry blossoms of 2014 put on a spectacular show of beauty as the tidal basin greeted thousands of admirers. The pink and white blooms have showed off once again. I walked the length of the tidal basin, meeting some interesting people along the way… a family from Turkey, a couple from China, and avid photographers from Florida and the DC area. This year, my focus (pun intended) was on close-up images… macro photography to be exact. Here are a few of the images I created of the blossoms. Enjoy!
