a PIDFC that anyone can win.

I went to a yard sale in Trinity Bellwoods park today.



Some friends of mine who run a clothing line had a booth at this fashion yard sale thing in the park. It's supposed to be an event where the clothes that small fashion boutiques just couldn't manage to sell are unloaded here dirt cheap.

For the shopper, there's that 1 in a million chance that you'll find that awesome belt or skirt (I only saw one dude buy anything, and he bought some women's shoes for himself) for next to nothing.

There was some other event on College St. I passed through on my way home that had the street closed off to traffic. Probably soccer-related. It's that time of year again where there's going to be some big thing going on just about every day.

Anyway, Trinity Bellwoods has some nice trees. Frakked if I know what these are, so anyone's guess is as good as mine. If you post an answer, you're correct. Though if you choose a tree more likely to be in Trinity Bellwoods park here in TO, then you're probably even more correct.

Anyhow, in the drawing I was just trying to get across the overall tree shapes. There probably are some Bob Ross-type tricks I should make some use of.

I'm going to guess it's some kind of tropical plant. Possibly banana.

is an interesting effect. It's still obvious that you've drawn trees, yet so fun that you've used such a novel technique.

I like it.

Kind of odd that you should pick there. by ni (4.00 / 2) #3 Sun Jun 15, 2008 at 06:55:59 AM EST
Trinity Bellwoods happens to be what must be one of only a few parks in the world where the bulk of the trees are identified online. See here.

Also, I'm RSVP'd for their Rouge Park tour next Saturday, if you're interested.
