Sakura (Japanese for Cherry Blossom) are a metaphor for the fleeting nature of life. The transience of the blossoms, extreme beauty and quick death, speak to me about how we should live our lives. Grab hold, lean in, and live hard so your short time on this planet has beauty and meaning!
Shot in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
