This weekend was the Sakura Matsuri festival at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens where they have a great collection of Cherry Blossom trees. There were lots of cosplay kids, Japanese bands, Taiko drumming, and sooo many activities. The Cherry Blossoms were just starting to reach their peak but have a couple of days to go. There were long lines to get the special hanami bento boxes, with a special pink daifuku that had a lovely flowery taste to it. We had a very special treat in the herb garden a tiny baby usagi was having his own celebration nibbling some strawberry leaves, scream!!!

The Brooklyn Zinefest happened last weekend, after months of preparation it was a complete success! I tabled with a dear friend and talented writer/photographer Sewon, who had a loverly collection of photo zines, and new Korean recipe zine with gorgeous photos and yummy recipes. We had a a lot of fun even when we had moments where we were overwhelmed by the crowd and little sustenance. Public Assembly (venue)hit capacity around 3pm and a line formed around the corner, the event was written up in the New York Times and Time Out New York, so everyone came out. I can't to do it again next year! Here's are a few shots from the event.....

Brooklyn has an eclectic collection of architecture and one of my favorite things to shoot are doors or the very face of a building which tells a whole story...(shot in Brooklyn Heights, Crown Heights, Dumbo & Carroll Gardens on film with a Nikon F3)
