A big thank you to those who have submitted photos of the 2019 cherry blossoms to share. Unlike some of the other blooms in the recent past, this year was quite drama-free, without late snowstorms and destructive frosts. And with the bloom spanning two weekends–and consistently pleasant weather to boot–it has been a wonderful opportunity for visitors to see and photograph the spectacular display.
There have been a lot of photos submitted, and even after making some selections there are too many for a single post. So I'm breaking it up into a few installments. This is part 1–the others will come later this week.
Thanks again to all who have sent in their photos!
Stay tuned for part 2!
There has been an overwhelming response with several hundred photographers submitting their photos. Thank you to everyone who has already submitted photos for consideration. Submissions are now closed.
Photography Charity Spotlight
Looking to give back? Here's a photography-related charity I've been impressed with.
100cameras works with youth around the world who have had challenging experiences, and we teach them to process and tell their stories through photography in a way that impacts how they view themselves and their role in their community. Through their perspectives and community contributions being uplifted onto a global platform, youth are showing themselves that today and always, they are the bigger picture.
Every kid – no matter their background or circumstances – deserves the right to have access to tools that support them in processing their experiences in a way that creates space for emotional freedom in their future.
At 100cameras, we work worldwide with participants from ages 10-18 who have experienced challenging events as defined by anything that prompts feelings of anxiety, uncertainty, or instability.
