Zurich in bloom

After moving to my new apartment in Zurich, things are a bit calmer than on previous weeks. We’re not totally settled in yet, there are still so many things to do… And I haven’t found enough time to go out with the camera. But this season is being one of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen (or maybe it’s the novelty of experiencing it in a new place) and when I saw the impressive blossoms in Strauffacher a few days ago, I knew I had to go back to take a few photos before the flowers were gone. I went back on a beautiful and sunny afternoon, just in time to enjoy the last days of the cherry blossoms in the square and a gorgeous evening light.

I have been practicing something I’ve been avoiding before. Since I arrived to Zurich I’ve been doing a bit more of street photography. It’s a bit challenging for me, as I don’t feel very confortable taking photos of people… But it’s always nice to try new things πŸ™‚ Let me know what you think!

    1. Thanks a million, Anne!!! I told you I get a bit crazy every year with the blossoms πŸ™‚
      I’m not really used to photograph people… probably because I’m to shy and I don’t like very much to be in front of the camera, hehehe… So photographing the city during the day it’s challenging for me!! But I’m loving it! πŸ™‚
      Hope you had a great Easter holiday!
