In Victoria with no particular plans for the camera I took a few photographs during a walk around the Inner Harbor early one morning.
Fist of all there is the Netherlands Centennial Carillon in front of the BC Museum. It is a 62-bell carillon given in 1967 occasioned by the centennial celebrations.
Turning around, here is for locals and tourists alike the heart of Victoria. Government Street is a street of many different shops and establishments for imbibing, and the buildings breathe nearly two centuries of the city’s history.
Turning another forty-five degrees brings the CPR Terminal into view. It has gone through a seismic upgrade and renovations are still ongoing. Not showing in this photograph – but what looks to me like- luxury office space is part of the new design.
We stroll by the CPR Terminal and the Parliament Buildings across the road and around the corner on Menzies Street to check on some old brick government buildings. There are offices in these.
So much to look at and so little time left. Turning again I notice, across the Inner Harbor, the old Blue bridge (or what is left of it) and the small water planes getting ready for the day.
I happened to be back at this bridge some hours later and the activity at that time made for a completely different scene.
As a rule I don’t try my hand on black and white, not for showing anyway. My personal opinion is that for serious black and white photography a top camera is even more important than for color photography, but at the same time b/w is to beautiful to ignore and it’ll keep on popping up here so once in a while.
