To capture this year’s cherry blossoms in at the Tidal Basin, we decided to try something a little different: put ourselves in the hands of a 4-year-old.
Video reporter Dalton Bennett built a custom harness that could be easily worn by a person (in this case — the daughter of a colleague), to which we mounted one of our 360 cameras. We gave her a hand up on to the grass and let her wander and explore. See if you can spot the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, a family posing for a photo, a curious black dog and the many tourists who turned to see what this little girl was up to.
