Sunday Observations


Just a few observations from my very quick trip to Victoria. It's such a pretty city. We squeaked out some beautiful weather for the shoot, so I'm relieved. Whew.





That's what I observed in the 18 hours I was in Victoria. What did you get up to today?

Love your style Janis!.

We all very wonderfully survived the Market!...A good time was had by all!

So nice of you to take the trip out to Abbotsford...what a huge deal that was.

Wow looks like fun! I haven't been there since I was quite young — it's on the to-do list this year.

De l' Australie sur miki.o, je passe au Canada par le biais de Ton blog, pour découvrir des endroits qui donne envie de faire le tour du monde et qui nous chargent d'inspiration. C'est tellement enrichissant, il va falloir que j'envisage de faire la même chose pour vous faire découvrir le sud de la france.....

Excellent photos!

Horses and markets are always a good photography subject.

I've never been to Victoria, but have always wanted to. I love the vibrant colours in the Chinatown pics! Yesterday, I went to the zoo and my son went on his first pony ride!!

So you've got enough of good weather to do your shots? That's awesome!
Love the Totem Poles!

Here it is 18:40 in the evening, so I already did some freelance stuff, drove to the gas station('Cause Monday is the cheapest day for refueling your car) & am about to eat some great Spaghetti with onion-tomato sauce, together with my parents... :D

I love the travel map shot, and that horse looks very resigned to trotting people around for the rest of the day! The Don Mee sign is fantastic!!!
