Welcome spring at High Park this Sunday

Hello, spring!

If you’re truly Filipino, like 99.9% of us, you look forward to warmer weather. Back in the Philippines, people never make a big deal out of weather unless there’s a bagyo (typhoon) as it is perpetually summer all year round. People in Manila start wearing their jackets at 24C! But living in Canada the simplest signs that winter is officially over makes people dance and bring the barbeque out: birds chirping, squirrels running about and of course, flowers blooming!

This Sunday May 4, the Toronto-based Pinoygraphers are having a picnic-slash-informal shoot at High Park to take advantage of the once-a-year appearance of the Park’s cherry blossoms. We encourage our fellow Pinoy photoenthusiasts and friends to join us for an afternoon of pretty flowers and photo fun. We also need models so who knows? You might just get your own glamour headshot for Facebook! We are meeting 3:00 pm at the Grenadier Restaurant in the middle of the park.

For those of you unfamiliar with High Park, here is a PDF of the map: http://www.toronto.ca/parks/highpark/map_highpark.pdf.pdf

The picture above is of my neighbor’s magnolia tree, those are not cherry blossoms just in case you’re wondering. Anyway, hope to see you all on Sunday… kita kits!

  1. Thanks for posting this Jade! I’ll be there Sunday!

    [*btw, I’m going to be picking up a new camera body in the near future. The Canon rebate is on til June and it’s a sweet deal (approx $100 off cams and lenses, x2 if you buy more than one)–> if anyone else is buying Canon gear give me a shout so we can buy together and double our rebates!!!]

  2. I’ll be there too. I already went this week and most are in bloom. I’m hoping some will be on the ground by this weekend.
