Tulip Festival ’11 – Renge

Spring sure is slow this year around. I mean, last year we had the hottest spring while this year we had the most delayed one. Global warming? Global climate change? If anything, nothing stays the same for long so patterns tend to change. Same could actually be said to the format of the Tulip Festival. I’ll go with a bit of a prologue and a recap while showing my lovely Renge twins as they curiously climb up tulips on a very nice cloudless windy day.

I shall be upping one more article a bit later. I already have numerous parts of the Tulip Fest’, I came here numerous times, and I don’t necessarily want to bore your guys/gals with already snapped images. I only come here for the international pavilion section to taste foods and to see what they have to offer. I shall re-cap everything and treat this article as a “prologue”.

And as I noted in the intro paragraph – The tent positioning keeps changing throughout the years. It basically stays the same, but the minor changes are very noticeable causing a ripple throughout the navigation of the pavilion. The main course/event hasn’t even started and you can already notice it. Oh, and do not read this as a complain because I’m only stating my observations.

Hmm…..Random moment – I think I’ll aim the next three images for mocking and taunting the local newspaper prints for splattering Tulip Festival images in Ottawa papers. I mean, they constantly use these kinds of image style in their papers so I just felt like randomly poking fun at you guys. Kon! Kon!

I tried to find some nice locations for both my Twin Renge’s to let loose, but only managed one cramp little location.  Don’t worry, no damages to any of the Tulips! It’s as if my twin foxes spirits never touched them! I try to leave things as I found them.
