It is 2021, and I am not planning to go downtown to Washington DC to photograph the cherry blossoms this year. I think the last year stunned my desire to ride the Metro downtown. Plus, I am not exactly clear on what the rules are this year. Parking is always a bitch. I will be sitting this one out.
On a more positive note, for anyone planning to make the trip downtown, I am providing my notes. Would appreciate anyone willing to add to these notes by commenting. My cherry trees bloomed yesterday in Alexandria, Virginia. In a few more days, the blooms downtown will be beautiful as always. Hope your experience this year brings you joy and beautiful images.
