Midnight Cherry Blossoms

Cherry Blossoms at night

It was cherry blossom season when I arrived in Seoul earlier this April, but it was the strange eerie glow of the night light that made them jump out at me. Usually one would imaging the poetic pairing of cherry blossoms with moonlight, but I like that in this case, it is street lamps and car lights that takes the place of the moon. The artificial lighting carries a certain melancholic nod to our relationship to nature as urban creatures.
