Photographer's Note

Hiroshima needs no introduction.

In Japanese culture, the short-lived cherry blossom (sakura) is symbolic of the ephemeral nature of life, so it seemed fitting to frame the A-Bomb Dome with sakura.

Walking around the Peace Memorial Park today, surrounded by delicate cherry blossom, people out for their Hanami (cherry blossom viewing) picnics, and reminders of the city's tragic past, was both soothing and surprisingly moving.

The exposure was 20sec.
