Springtime is always a busy time for the city of Jinhae in South Korea. It is the home of the biggest cherry blossom festival in the country. Tens of thousands of people from all over the world flock to the otherwise fairly quiet town to enjoy the sea of pink blossoms, especially along the Yeojwacheon Stream and the old Jinhae train station. Due to the unpredictable and fleeting nature of the blossoms, it can be tricky to plan an international trip that lines up exactly with the peak bloom. This year, the blossoms actually hit their peak a week early, which was perfect for Eve and family who flew all the way from Singapore. We went to the location early to beat the crowds and had a great time posing, playing rock paper scissors, and blowing bubbles under the blossoms. Below are some of my personal favorite shots from this session.
