I'm stunned. The authorities have BANNED my sakura photograph under the 1907 Obscene Publications Act. A letter delivered to me this morning stated that my photograph displayed "gratuitous sexual imagery and some long floppy things."
They added that my photo was a potentially corrupting influence on society and that publication would result in a lengthy jail term. Utterly absurd.
So I'm sorry that on this occasion I'm unable to share my sakura picture with you. However, after spending much of the day studying the minutiae of this ridiculous law, I've managed to find a compromise. Please enjoy the mosaic version below.
