Hanami...

I've been quite interested in preserving cut flowers after they have died and have been hanging them upside down all over our kitchen to dry. It's changed my perspective a bit and when I saw these cherry blossoms at work I found such beauty in the wilting petals and morose posture. The colors had begun to shift from bright pink to creamy coffee on the edges and the flower itself drooped so heavily from the branch it looked like it may take a nosedive at any moment. I felt like a bit of an asshole standing there enjoying the beauty of it's demise, but took it in regardless.
