White Sakura


The 11th of April, 2009

OK, the one on April 9 was supposed to be the last sakura upload.
But when I visited a resevoir in Daitabashi, Setagaya,
which is open to public at this time of year,
I found this pure white sakura,
a different breed from somei yoshino.

Why not shoot them?

At first, I thought of shooting their "faces,"
but realized this POV might be nicer.

We used to call women who looked beautiful from behind "backcian,"
which was a coined word and was pronounced as bakkushan.

These flowers are quite backcians, are they?
