Cherry Blossoms // UW Quad
It's that time of year…cherry blossom season. 31 cherry blossom trees on the University of Washington campus Quad turn into cotton candy plants straight out of a Dr. Suess book. And not only do the trees bloom, students emerge out from the depths of the libraries to study and lounge and tourists descend on the annual spectacle.
I will admit, these trees are iconic. But when there are thousands of photos taken everyday, it deters you from partaking. Alec and I were determined to document the cherry blossoms from the most unique perspectives possible. We wanted to create pictures that had yet to be captured.
And our first idea was the aerial shots, namely climbing four flights of stairs in multiple buildings and searching for open classrooms.
All of the Quad buildings are so picturesque.
And then we walked around ground zero.
I had to get at least one macro shot...

Even though the cherry blossoms can be somewhat of nuisance, they are one of the best parts of campus and the perfect remedy for finals week.
