    __________ORIGINAL Description__________

    These Flashback photos are hard!

    I found pictures of my parents taken 40 years ago during the Cherry Blossom blooming in 1971. I tried to retrace where the photos were taken. I thought I had a good idea where each spot was. But I soon realized that living trees are hard to match up 40 years later. I got close but some things are off and I didn't match them up like I wanted. I guess I'll try next year.

    Big thanks to jasonpowell for the idea and some advice on the shots. But you could have warned me to line up the horizon! (Just kidding :O)

      В ночной тиши сандалового сада
      Благоухала сакура вчера
      Свой сладкий аромат безмерно раздавала
      Всем тем, кто близок был тогда

      Прошло немного времени и что же,
      Тот прежний цвет её поник
      В туман над речкой превратился,
      Где в ожиданьи воду пил тростник.
