For the second time in a row, I brought my camera but had no battery charge (I did try to charge it recently, but realized that either my charger or my battery is broken), so I had to settle for using Michael's iPhone. I know, I really haven't been doing well in the photography department recently. I was pissed at myself for about 5 minutes, then decided this was a great chance to experience the walk more, rather than stressing about taking photos the entire time. As you probably know if you have ever used a DSLR, it's a lot less worrisome to just use a camera phone. In any case, you'll probably notice the Instagram-ish quality of my photos for this walk, and that's the reason why.
Half the cherry blossoms were already done for the season, and half were crowded with photographers, people doing engagement/child/family photo sessions, and couples lying down and canoodling under the shade as if there weren't hundreds of other people there. I positioned myself to take photos in areas where there weren't too many people.
