Here is a typical postcard shot of Castle Square in Warsaw, Poland on a very sunny and warm day. Possibly the shot is blown out–I can barely tell because I feel a bit blind after almost a whole day of such bright sunlight (not complaining!).
Tulips and cherry blossoms get most of the attention around this time of of year, so finding trillium flowers feels a little like finding a secret treasure. Unfortunately, given that they are rather delicate and slow-growing, it was sad to see that someone had cut a few of them.
The light pink cherry blossoms came and went within a few days last week, but these darker ones are just starting. Hopefully with slightly cooler temperatures, they’ll last a little longer.
The youngest generation of the Good Friday grilling crew helps the veterans by spraying the grill to get the smoke going.
I hope all the posts on the Kensington Market event weren’t overkill for regular readers, but I realized it must be my favourite Toronto tradition. I also think my photos came out a little better this year. I assume this is courtesy of my newer lens, an upgrade from the kit lens I used last year. It handled the bright conditions a little better, as well as the smoke, and was a lot faster.
The newest addition to the Seven Seas Fish Market crew is the young man in the middle. He provided customers with forks and napkins and brought extra supplies from the store to the grilling station, all the while fitting in perfectly with the choreography of the seasoned pros.
Trying not to make all of this weekend’s posts about one thing, so here is an example of sombre graffiti in one of the market’s narrow alleyways. But you know, maybe the grim reaper needs some sardines.
