Car Free Day Victoria 2016

For the second year in a row, I went to downtown Victoria, BC, for Car Free Day.  This year it took up a few more blocks of Douglas Street than last year and I enjoyed walking along, looking at all that was offered.  As I parked in a city parking garage, I was able to walk a very short distance before arriving at the first display, which was set up by local first nations.  Initially, there were various fantastic carvings but nobody was performing.  For most of the walk, I had my Canon DSLR for photos, but when I returned to the First Nations display, while they were performing, I took out my Hasselblad 500 EL/M (more on this and the medium format film photos in a later post).

Something Unexpected 

There have been a couple of unexpected things happen lately. First, I became very busy with work and haven’t had time 😞 for photography or to write a new post. Things should go back to normal soon. The second, much more exciting thing is I found a camera that I hoped to get one day and was pleasantly surprised to find one. I am now the proud owner of a Hasselblad EL/M. More to come when I have chance to put it through the paces.
