Cherry blossoms in Toho Studios

Well, it's the time of the year again for the blossoming of cherry blossoms (sakura) in Tokyo.

I've managed to retrieve my old Panasonic LX-3 after sending it off for repairs prior to my trip to Bratislava, so I managed to snap a couple of photos with it last night when I was at Toho Studios. Nowadays I actually carry two cameras around, my LX-3 (it's more inconspicuous) and my Canon 7D... which I use only when I want to take photos that can only be taken with a DSLR.

So for now I'll just share the photos that I took with the Panasonic LX-3. The entire story of why I was in Toho Studios will come later.

That's the cafetaria.

It is a wonderful feeling, I guess, to dine under the cherry blossom trees.

I liked the magnificent trees, which usually look bare and generic during other times of the year. Sometimes I felt as if these pink giants were about to devour those around them.

When confronted by such sights, it's unsurprising that sometimes one would just slow down from what he was doing and just look, and appreciate.
