Last year I went down to the Tidal Basin to take cherry blossom photos and what a mess – tourists everywhere!  Don’t get me wrong, tourists are great for our city, but not great for photography, especially when you also have your dog with you :)

While I do work and live in DC, I am not downtown, so I often forget the craziness of DC tourist season.  This year, I think I will just enjoy the blossoms in my own neighborhood like these from the Cathedral Gardens.
