Friday in the Park with Cherry Blossoms
April 14, 2012 by jnyyz
We went over to High Park to check the sakura in full bloom. Unfortunately, we didn’t get there until just before sunset, so the lighting wasn’t great for pictures. The crowds had thinned a bit by then but it was still pretty crowded.
My bike was drawn to these two bikes chained to the P-gate at the top of the hill. They both had nice looking porteur style handlebars.
and from the back, a nice rack, a saddlebag support, hammered fenders, and of course, a Brooks saddle.
Walking down the hill, it was an interesting mix of people. Looking back up towards the top, it was mainly people frantically taking pictures in the fading light.
Looking the other way, the scene was set by someone having set up a sound system that was playing electro-ambient mood music, and people were just hanging out.
It was great to see so many people who had come by bike.
Many of us were watching this guy climb to the top of a tree, standing on very slender branches.
I hope he made it down OK.
