A Moment with the Cherry Blossoms

I went to this popular park in the center of Seoul because I knew it was a great place to see the blossoms in abundance. Korea is full of cherry blossoms, but finding yourself a spot in isolation to enjoy them is tricky. This woman managed just that, and as soon as I saw her I knew it would make an interesting picture. She sat motionless for minutes, likely in awe of the pink and white natural umbrella surrounding her.
