I know that technically I've already taken a photo of blossom this spring, but frankly compared to this one it was poop. Flickrblog had a few samples of other people's images like this and I figured I could do as well as that, so here it is. I love the painted effect caused by the washed out bokeh, almost like a wash of water colour. This was assisted greatly by the previously mentioned FD mount Makinon 28mm f/2.8 I got the other day. This picture alone makes it worth the £10 asking price.
