...I love my city...

So last weekend I took some photographs of downtown. I'm not a photographer by any means, but I thought it would be fun to spend the morning taking some photos of my beautiful city. I walked all the way from Chinatown to fisherman's wharf and back, which was a pretty long walk in the hot summer sun. I cooled off with a frozen yogurt afterwards, which was pretty amazing in the air-conditioned shoppe. I changed the photos to black and white, because I've always liked the contrast of black and white photos. Maybe I'll post of few coloured versions later, because Victoria is a very colourful place in the summertime. 

Here are a few of my favourite photos....Enjoy!

Can you spot the little bird?

There is something so adorable about a houseboat. I love this photo.
Fisherman's Wharf
This little taxi zoomed by me when I was standing at the dock

One is for sale!

The Gates of Harmonious Interest and the lions that protect them

Best Chinese food in Victoria. Love the retro sign.

So many beautiful flowers in Victoria
I always seem to get British tour buses in my shots. Love the architecture of the Bard and Banker pub.

This heron landed right in front of me. So beautiful!
Yummy frozen yogurt to cool me off!
