Bright summer day is always beautiful but summer is slowly going away and I did manage to take a few pretty summer pictures at Edwards Gardens. My last visit was last year at a photo shoot for my friend’s wedding, the relaxing feel was totally unforgettable so I figuared why not go for a short visit. The parking lot was very full, I guess people had decided to feel the summer one last time before it goes away during the long weekend 😛 It was really a perfect day for a walk at the park, weather was very nice and cool, didn’t really expect to see any flowers because it was August already but I did find a few interesting things and it really was a very enjoyable afternoon. Here are a few pictures I took 🙂

Surprise surprise, this ribfest is turning into a children playfest more than a ribfest really 😛 As most of the people know, the size of the food area is always smaller than Markham ribfest, mostly the same people/restaurants, music is always good, but the play area is getting bigger and bigger each year. Didn’t really eat anything there this time but I really wanted to enjoy this event in a good weather. While I was walking towards to the main area, I was totally surprised by the amount of rides they had for kids, rides everywhere, even rock climbing really?? And why would they sell beer cheaper than the other ribfest?!?! In conclusion assuming if they are doing the same next year, looking for food, you should definitely go Markham, want to spend a day with your kids, Richmond Hill is the place hehe.

I didn’t expect with a cloudy weather Saturday I would manage to come up with a few good pictures, guess it doesn’t have to be sunny to get that achievement hehe. I haven’t taken any pictures outdoor in a cloudy day for a long long time and the result was not bad. I love photography, don’t want to be a professional but I am trying a lot different types just for fun. Practice is what I need and I am sure I will do a lot of that this summer. Every experience begins with a start, feel free to comment because I will definitely need that to improve my skills hehe.

Call me a noob, can you believe after all these years living in Toronto, I had never been to St. Jacobs? The weather wasn’t the greatest, just a little rain which was perfect because the hot weather would probably kill me outdoor :-P. There were actually a few surprises went I got there, the size of the Flea Market is so huge, soo many amish people, the place was totally packed at 10 in the morning and a tourist hot spot. Compare to the flea market I had been to, the biggest difference I noticed was probably the indoor area, tons of unique shops and food counters, I was amazed by those specialty food counters lineups, outside area was more like a festival/farmers market/shops and not to mention there is also an antique area too on the other side of the street. It was a very good experience overall, everyone was soo friendly, as a city boy that wanted to get away from concrete, this is definitely a place to go from time to time because of the calm atmosphere 🙂
