Washington D.C. Cherry Blossom Festival 2013

Hey everyone! So a few weeks ago Ashley and I went up to Washington D.C. for a day for the Cherry Blossoms! The Street festival was a week after but this was ton of fun but super crowded. If it is Cherry Blossom blossoming time there, advice I can give is get there mega early on the weekends or go in the week because there is just a TON of people. We did had a blast though and unfortunately it was still maybe 2 days before max bloom. Some trees had buds, some had blossoms and very very few had all blossoms. Anyways, enjoy the Festival in it's 101 Anniversary! 
So I have never walked over to the Thomas Jefferson Memorial on the other side of the Tidal Basin but it is so nice looking!

Blossoms in Richmond City

This is a little late with the post but the Cherry Blossoms had bloomed about 2 weeks ago in the city of Richmond! you can find some great cherry blossoms down on Browns Island across the canal from Tredegar Iron works of Tredegar Street. We took a walk on the pipeline that day too, and by we I mean my girl friend :) Anyways, I hope you can catch the cherry blossoms some time next year. I recommend them here and also on the VCU Campus at Monroe Park. Enjoy the photos!

Japanese Pharmacy

I don't know the name of this pharmacy but it was funny to see that apparently he is "popping" a pill and making it look like it is fun!

Blossoming at Maymont take One

So Richmond Cherry Blossoms bloomed a few weeks back and so did a few other flowering trees. My girlfriend and I went to Maymont on a weekend before we went to Washington D.C. It was a lovely day, but anyways enjoy the photographs. I am sorry that I haven't put up new photos recently but I am finding a little more time to get through them and putting up these posts!

Toji Temple - Kyoto, Japan

To-ji Temple is a grand temple complex and even host the largest flea market (Kobo-san) in the city of Kyoto. It is on the 21st of every month. To-ji Temple literally means "East Temple" and was established in 796. This is two years after the capital of Japan moved to Heian-kyo (Kyoto) and was one of the three Buddhist Temples that were allowed in the city at the time. It is the only one of the three that still stands today. The pagoda that stands there is the tallest wooden tower in Tokyo at 54.8 meters tall. It is also Unesco Heritage Site! Anyways enjoy the photos!

But not really

Anyways, April Fools from yesterday. I have been really busy though and I am sorry there isn't that much new content up. Work has been going smoothly I guess and I even had a new interview recently that would advance me to a better place in life. I'm excited if I get it!
Also the weather is starting to get better and the Cherry Blossoms are starting to open. I hope I get out there and start taking loads of pictures and I will!
I also hope to take more weekend trips with the better weather coming. This coming weekend and maybe next I will be going to Washington D.C. for blossoms and just hanging around! If you are going give me a heads up!
I also hope to get some hiking in too!
Oh, so I am starting to run to the end of my photos from my trip to Japan :( If things go really well I might be able to make the trip this Fall to Japan, maybe...perhaps. I really do hope so.
Well I hope to get some more photos up soon. I hope I can write a post about a new job sometime if I get it!

Closing Shop

Well I have found that I have been to busy to write on my blog in a long time. I haven't even been able to go out and take photographs and so I decided that I am going to have to stop updating my site. It is a tough decision but consumer and work life has taken over me and I must follow. I'm sorry guess :/
