To continue to make the most of cherry blossom season, I went out on my lunch break and got pictures of the sakura around the less-crowded and more city-like part of the Meguro River.
It really struck me how the natural blooming sakura contrasted with the metal bridges and buildings. In my “main” Meguro River pictures (coming later), I tried to avoid capturing high-rises and other buildings, but in the case of these pictures, I think it’s interesting how the grittiness of the city gets suddenly splashed with sakura. Since the water in this part of the river looks rougher here, it seems surreal, like a scene from a video game. (It would probably be an action game–the types my brothers would play, while I would just watch and enjoy the scenery and the music. I always needed my games to be like Kingdom Hearts…)
