Parking myself by a tree at the ideal spot along 'Cherry blossom lane', to capture nice candid shots, I spent some three and a half hours hoping for a shot that would include the wind sending a shower of flower petals down on a photogenic looking group of people.
That never quite happened, I either got one or the other, or not quite enough of both. But as this couple caught my gaze walking by, she wearing a long graceful skirt, he carrying her shoulder bag, I knew I had a chance for a really nice image, flower shower or no. When they reached the ideal spot I snapped the shutter.
After they walked off into the distance I looked at the scene on my camera screen and saw the object in her hand was her shoes and that I got a clean capture of the flower petals stuck to her feet. Man O' man did I ever hit the jackpot.
