The return from trip to Lake Baikal turned out to be exceptionally pleasant. It's really hard to believe how much Paris has changed during only 2-3 weeks. I left a cold and rainy city, grey with occasional snow, melting down as soon as it touched the ground. Coming back from wintery Siberia, I found Paris incredibly sunny, warm and literally flourishing - looking almost like Kyoto in April.
White and pink flowers amaze with their fleeting beauty and as a photographer I gotta hurry because usually after about 2 weeks, sometimes even less, they're all gone. Sometimes flowers can disappear after 3-4 days, so the time to capture this phenomenon may turn out to be extremely short.
Another difficulty is that trees don't bloom at the same time at all and when wandering around the city, you will quickly notice significant differences between places and districts. It's quite common that places not far from each other look very different. In one the appearance may still be pre-spring, and in the second there are already almost summer-like vibes.
Stumbling upon those lovely splashes of pink in a rather monochrome city, has easily become my top one activity recently.
