Having done my undergrad degree in Victoria, this city holds a special place in my heart. This had been the longest I had gone without visiting since I started school at UVic in 2013, and as you can imagine, I was so excited to be there again. We were blessed with gorgeous sunny days and an airbnb that was located right downtown. Perfect walking distance from all my favourite sights, stores, and restaurants.
Below are some of the shots from my four days in Victoria, BC. Although I didn’t take a ton I feel that they show you the diversity and beauty of this island town.
Unfortunately, the one thing this photo diary is lacking, is food. Trust me, Victoria has great food. So great, in fact, that I was so excited to eat I would forget to photograph my plate! Oops!
We walked along the waterfront and got to see this spectacular sunset ft. a water taxi.
I found out I’m terrified of geese – they’re moody and fly at you! Not a fan.
Instagram-worthy shots in Butchart Gardens. Trust me, it took a while before we found somewhere with no tourists.
Fan Tan Alley – The smallest alley ever! You can go into the shops and get lost I swear.
Stay here for a more luxurious trip or go for their high-tea. You’ll feel like royalty in no time.
The Parliament Building. Probably my favourite building in Victoria.
It’s just so photogenic, isn’t it?
Our lovely sitting room in our Airbnb. I feel like I should have been drinking kale smoothies while doing yoga in this place. Don’t you think?
How patriotic of me for Canada’s 150th birthday.
Victoria is full of fancy looking buildings. I want to sip a cocktail while looking out of those windows.
More geese. They’re everywhere I tell ya…
Last, but certainly not least. Everyone loves Chewie with a lightsaber.
My Photography Gear:
All these photos were taken using my Olympus PEN E-PL8 .
I currently only have the kit lens which is a Olympus 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 .
I edit my photos using Lightroom. You can look at my photo editing tips here.
