street of Cherry Trees

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

this is a 1 km long street in my hometown. It is unique in our region if not in Germany. Every year it is an attraction not only for insiders. It is very difficult to capture this pink paradise because you have always a backdrop of plain more or less dull houses. All shots had to be handheld since twigs with those bunches of blossoms were bobbing nicely in a warm summerlike breeze.

Indura,

 

A gorgeous series with the blazing colors. I agree with Hank that No.4 is also my favorite. It is that perfect shot with composition, colors and clarity.

Dee, Berth,

many thanks for looking and enjoying.

 

Hank,

I am afraid there will be no cherries. This is the Japanese botanical type with beautiful blossoms but no fruit. Beautiful but (numb...) But also they are showing in autumn a pleasant colorful foliage.

 

Paul,

thanks for sharing the pleasure of this little dream.

Iduna, this is a very beautiful set. I am surprised to see these blossoms to be so red. In DC area, they are almost white and sometimes pale pink! It seems, it depends how much water they had during the winter!?... I know how difficult it is to shoot in a big crowd but you did a really nice job!

Louis 2 — a botanist friend of mine once told me that white cherry blossom is a sign of a tree under stress (e.g. a lack of water).

After a VERY wet winter in southern England the blossom onall trees is a joy to behold.

Iduna, a very fine series!

Stuart,

thanks for your choice and for having an expert's look.

 

Louis,

thank you for your interesting an d supportive comment. I always thought there are different types of trees. These trees are in a narrow street with not much traffic where people also have foregardens. Our municipality was planning a tram track there but skipped this idea because people protestet against this assault against the trees.

 

Orient XI,

thanks a lot for your nice and informative response. I go there every year and this is a kind of initial spring ritual for me.

Iduna,

 

You've done a great job of conveying the beauty that these trees bring to their environment. I think including their environment enhances the story and puts them in context, and as such, these are very successful. In isolation, though the flowers are gorgous, the viewer has no idea how these trees relate to their environment.

 

I am glad they didn't build the tramway! Wise decision.

      Continuing my trawl through my archives, I found this from Chinese New Year in London 1998. I had been shooting with my first Leica (a M3) for less than a year at this stage.
      Film was Fuji Neopan 400 and the lens was an old Summicron 50mm f2.

      Because of the covid-19 lockdown I am unable to go out on to the streets to photograph, not that there are any people around. I am therefore still working through my archives, and came across this image from Paris in 2002. Taken with a Leica M6, 50mm Summicron f2 and using Kodak T400CN film (which I used to love!). I hope you like it.
      I have also been revamping my web site using Adobe Portfolio, which is part of the Lightroom/Photoshop package, and like the results so far, although it is a work in progress. Take a look here

      I haven't posted for quite some time because being a street photographer when there is virtually nobody on the streets during these crazy times is difficult. This was taken prior to the time when we knew the term COVID-19 in 2017.
      Leica M7 + 35mm Summarit-MM f2.5. Fuji Neopan 400CN (C-41) film commercially processed and then scanned by me.
