After the final shot of the Delta, I promptly reloaded with a Kodak Portra 160nc to capture the true essence of the cherry blossoms. They're beautiful flowers really, and probably one of my favorites. The morning started off with a hasty bike ride to Yeoido (a small island floating off the southeast side of Seoul on the Han River), because I had to be back in time for work. There was a slight overcast that day, so I couldn't contrast the pinkish hues of the cherry blossoms against the sky blue backdrop as I had anticipated! Nonetheless, I am glad to have seen these flowers in full bloom, unlike last year, where I caught them towards the end of their brief and momentary lives. Imagine if we only "lived" for a few weeks, what would (could?) you (possibly) do during that time? In retrospect to time, we are like these cherry blossoms, a constant metaphor for the ephemeral nature of life. Mortality is what makes us human, but what of the soul? Isn't that what lives on forever? The soul immortalizes us all. Just something to think about. Anyways, the last few photos from this roll were taken the following morning. It's becoming an interesting habit.
