Photos: Hanami in 2012, Paris

Have you heard about Hanami? It is a Japanese custom of enjoying the beauty of flowers. One of the choices for this occasion is cherry blossoms. So, Parc de Sceaux with beautiful cherry blossom trees is a good venue for this custom in Paris. This weekend, I was there. The park is big. The cherry blossom trees are hidden from the inside the big green trees. When I entered the area which contained these trees, the scene was magical. There were many people spending time in the park. Just about the time I started clicking the trees with the cherry blossoms, the kid raced past on a cycle. It provided a good foreground for the colourful background.
