Thank you both! I'd never gone downtown for shooting the cherry blossoms, and did so this time from sun up until about noon. Fellow BP'er Don Johnson joined me along the way, and we had a really great time.

Did they pose for you or was this just fortuitous? Either way, it's a beautiful capture of spring and young love at its best. I can see why it's a favorite, Chris. Good luck
