Yashica A (Developed July 2016) Part 2: Cherry Blossom Festival

This is a short series I’m going to run here on the blog featuring photos from my most recently developed roll of medium format 120 film taken with my Yashica A twin reflex lens camera. I’m grouping photos together by subject.

It’s interesting that after the photos I took at the park, I put the camera away for almost exactly 4 years – these photos are from 13 April 2015. We don’t go to the Cherry Blossom Festival every year because it seems pretty pointless. The same trees and masses of people do not make for the best of times. But, with Scarlett finally 3 years old we figured she might enjoy it this time around.

And she did enjoy it overall. We did the entire loop which was just a LITTLE too much for her at that age. She kind of threw a fit 3/4 of the way through it. But after that she was fine and it was overall a good time. Unless my mom comes in 2017, we probably won’t go again until 2019 or so when the twins are about 3 years old.
