    The Japanese love Cherry Blossoms and Fireworks since they represent the idea that beauty is short lived and must be enjoyed. Now that Spring is behind us, I organized some of the pictures I took of the Cherry Blossoms in Japan.

    Thank you, Arif. The photos are beautiful and true beauty is definitely fleeting.

    Dear Victor, Carol and Mkawa,
    Thank you very much for your comments. One of the most beautiful things about Cherry Blossoms is watching the petals fall at night under a light and then it looks like it is snowing. I hope I will be able to do that next time.
