My Bicycle Fetish

Not sure what it is because I haven’t ridden a bike in years but they seem to catch my eye in photo compositions. This image was taken during my first afternoon in Victoria. This picture was one of the last photos I took during the 5th and final night in Victoria. See more of my …

Beacon Hill Park

This photo is for the waitress at Gatsby Mansion Inn & Restaurant. On our first night in Victoria, it was raining quite hard so we pretty much had the entire restaurant to ourselves. They have great food by the way! Anyway, so we had this very friendly waitress serving us and had a nice long …

Amazing Sunset – Inner Harbour

The 4th night in Victoria was definitely the best sunset of the entire trip and perhaps the best one I have seen all year. My mom had kept talking about wanting to take an evening picture of us together from this spot since before we even went on vacation. Since we were running out of …

Skipper the Yorkshire Terrier

Victoria’s Fisherman’s Wharf is a colorful community of floating houseboats and fishing vessels just a few blocks from the Inner Harbour. While walking through one of the docks, this dog, Skipper was standing on the side of the boat looking around. I couldn’t help but smile. See more of my Victoria BC pictures.

Craigdarroch Castle

I think Craigdarroch Castle is a relatively new attraction in Victoria. The house itself has been around for a long time but it had several reincarnations over the years from a mansion to a military hospital to a university and a music conservancy. Half of the house appears to have been restored while the latter …

B.C. Parliament Building at Night

My parents took the above photo in 1986 without the luxury of a tripod so this is another scene that I have waited 23 years to photograph. They did manage a sharp photo however by balancing their Nikon 35mm SLR on the wall but the sky was black by that point. This picture is dedicated …

Victoria Chinatown

Victoria’s Chinatown is pretty small and seems to attract primarily non-Chinese tourists. With that in mind, I don’t think it is too much to expect that the food servers would have a better grasp of English. That really wasn’t the case as my mom and I had lunch at this dim sum place but they …

Old Town Victoria

Victoria is one of the best towns for a traveler to visit if you like to walk and see historic architecture. When you walk up the street past the Inner Harbour it transitions in the Old Town district where the majority of buildings are from the late 1800’s. This building was my favorite one. See …

Parliament War Monument

After a very long day at the Butchart Gardens, I woke up before dawn the next morning for a walk around the Inner Harbour and surrounding streets. The British Columbia Parliament Building is a very beautiful place that in my opinion looks best at night when the lights are on but it also looks good …

Victoria Inner Harbour

After visiting Miniature World, the rest of the afternoon was rained out. I did manage to get in a few photos in the rain after dinner but I liked the photos from the next morning better. In the background is the Parliament Building, which is illuminated at night but I think shuts off around midnight …
