There are so many great photographers around that we don’t know about. Recently I’ve discovered John Song (http://www.johnsongphoto.com/). He considers himself a beginner photographer but he does this amazing work that captivates my imagination. What’s most interesting for me is that he lives in Seattle area too and captures his amazing landscapes of places that I’m very familiar with. It makes me ask myself how I did not see that and inspires on photographing even more.
Inspired by his photograph of cherry blossom at University of Washington campus (http://www.johnsongphoto.com/?p=1876 last photo with a brick walk going into the distance) I went there for several morning trying to do something similar, but as it often happens ended up with a different interpretation of the same subject.
