From a photographer’s point of view Victoria is subject rich. Historic buildings, Fisherman’s Wharf, the Esquimalt Lagoon and Mount Douglas Park are locations I love to visit. There are many more. Almost 8 weeks spent in Victoria in 2017 allowed me to revel in that richness and make many photographs.
‘Random’ would best describe my approach to photography. I love to get out on a camera walk and make images of subjects that catch my interest. Now, as I examine the images I made in and around Victoria last year I see several themes emerging: Nature, On the Water, At the Dock, Historic Buildings and Landscapes. Of the several thousand images I captured in Victoria my objective now is to sort and render them down to a Favourites Collection.
I started this process with my last article, the first of 2018. I don’t believe I’ll be able to work my Favourites down to a small groups. I like so many of them. It will probably take one or two more posts to cover my Favourites 2017 Victoria images. Then I’ll work on the others. Maybe I’ll even get to making a collection of Favourites overall. But that’s for another day. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the images I’ve included with this article.
