The blossoming of the sakura trees are always a good indication that Spring has sprung in the city. If you are lucky, you’ll be able to catch them at its full bloom on a sunny weekend afternoon.
This year, I wasn’t so fortunate as I was pre-occupied all weekend long. Knowing well the peak had past, I still made my way to High Park to see what was left. With some petals fallen to the ground, and the greens already sprouting on the trees, it was hard to find that right place to take photos of. Fortunately, there was still one tree left, where the fully bloomed cherry blossoms were still intact, with no green leaves in sight.
The park was still filled with people and budding photographers. There’s also something about these sakura trees that seem to bring out the model in everyone. There were no shortages of people striking their best pose while their pictures were taken.
