Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting
I’m late for the other week’s challenge, but I couldn’t help myself. Here’s my addition to the Fleeting challenge. I hope you all had fun browsing through what everyone has contributed to this challenge.
Sakura, or the cherry blossoms, are revered flowers here in Japan. It is said that the transience of these flowers symbolises a Japanese cultural tradition, for its blooming en masse as extreme beauty followed by a quick death. It had been associated with mortality as the ephemeral nature of life. These beauties have to be enjoyed really quickly as they will suddenly go as quickly as they blossomed.
