Cherry Blossoms...............

Project 52 - Week 7

For my "pic of the week" I chose a cherry blossom image from last Monday. I had a lot of fun with this shoot and made quite a mess. (Sorry no photos of that!)

My Nikon was used to take the original photograph. I then cropped it, added a texture layer, a little softness and a touch of grain.

Since it seemed to have an Asian feel to it, I put a lot of trust into Google Translate and added some text in Japanese.  These are the words that come up for these characters: peace, serenity, calm, repose & quiet. I lowered the opacity of the text quite a bit to prevent it from competing with the image, but I think it shows up just enough.

I am patiently waiting for another batch of branches to bloom, so I may be sharing more "blossom" images in the near future...........
