How was it? Were the cherry trees in bloom, or past?

They weren't in prime, but still showing a good amount of pink. I walked from the park over to the Bancroft Mills with cameras and tripod in tow...then found out for the first time that there's a public parking lot right behind the mills. Will make a note of that for next time!

Thanks! It turned out surprisingly well, since I saw the guy at the last moment and had to just pull over and get a quick picture with some cars coming up from behind me. I didn't meet the guy, but the local paper got a picture of him owrking on his painting the very same day and put it on the front page!
