Flower: Sakura (桜) Okinawa, Japan (Photo) and a Little Secret

Sakura (桜) is the Japanese word for Cherry Blossom. Yesterday I posted a blog entry about my trip up Nago Mountain in Okinawa, Japan to get some photos in my collection of the Cherryblossom Festival.

To my surprise, over 6,000 people viewed that blog !  It's going to take all day for me to reply to the tons of emails I recieved so, today's post will just be a quickie.

Now, I don't know if the sudden popularity was because someone likes my warped sense of humor or people just like to see photos of Cherry Blossoms.

A little secret I'll let you in on: I usually don't put my best photos on my blog.  The best of the best don't go on the internet, anywhere. I hide stuff like that under my futon.

But, today I'm putting one of my favorites here for you to see. I'll probably enter it in a contest, too.

If 6,000 people view this I really won't care what the contest judges think of my photography. Hah !

But, if you like it and they do, too I'll be tickled pinker than a Sakura (桜) up on the mountains of Okinawa, Japan !

Thank you. Actually, it was raining when I took this shot. The folks using Canons and Nikons had to wrap their cameras in plastic. My Pentax doesn't mind the rain a bit !

Ryan said...

I take it Pentax are the best of the best? Fantastic shot, maybe you should let us see some more of your best work...

RyukyuMike said...

Oh no, Canon is the Cadillac of cameras, if you ask a Canon owner. Nikon the Rolls Royce, if you ask a Nikon owner.
Pentax beats them all in the rain IMHO.
I'll show you some more good photos but, gotta keep plenty under the futon because there's cracks in the floor !

Wonderful shot!
I'm sure there are treasures under your futon :)

RyukyuMike said...

Thank you. The problem with me hiding stuff, all the time, is when I want something I always forget where I stashed it !
