Deuce Days in Victoria

I happened to be in downtown Victoria this weekend and as usual, had my camera with me.  Turns out this was opportune, as this weekend is “Deuce Days” in Victoria and it is billed as the largest gathering of 32 Ford Coupes in the world.  I wasn’t when all of them got together in one area, but I did happen to see a number driving around, as well as several other old classics.

Photos at the Victoria Busker Festival

It has been a crazy couple of weeks for me, but I finally managed to get some time to take a few photographs.  This time I went with a small group to see the Busker Festival, around the inner harbour area of Victoria, BC.  It was almost the perfect day for it, as the weather was partially overcast, so it was not too hot and we didn’t get wet.  While the festival was going on, so was everything else that happens in Victoria, including traffic on the sea, land and air!

A Photo Club Outing to Victoria

Every year in Victoria there is the Victoria Camera Swap Meet and this was the first time I made it out.  In fact, several members of the Camera Club I am part of headed out there to check it out.  It was an interesting mix of mostly older 35 mm, medium and large format film cameras, as well as movie cameras, accessories and some dSLR’s.  I could easily have spent enough to put me into debt, but in the end common sense won out and I only picked up one filter.
