Along with many other people, my wife and I, plus our dog ZuZu, headed to the Capitol Mall here in Salem on the day before Easter to see the cherry blossoms doing their thing.
Which is, of course, blossoming.
Scroll down for photos I took during our excursion.
This was the first time I'd photographed cherry blossoms. What I learned is that just when I began to think that one bunch of blossoms looks like all the rest, a change of perspective showed me that this wasn't true.
