Water images from

Victoria,

Vancouver Island

Canada

The Ross Fountain in the Butchart Gardens.

It reminded me of a mini version of

the Dubai Mall Fountain

Victoria Harbour….

…just on…

 

…night fall.

 

I didn’t think of it at the time, however…

….I really wish I had taken a ride

on the H2O Taxi…just for fun.

I remember studying Canada

when I was at school…Grade 6, I think.

When referring to Canadian salmon

our teacher told us that…

Canadians eat what they can and can what they can’t’.

This quote had me confused for some time

as I was used to referring to

a tin of soup, fish, whatever.

I don’t think these fish are salmon,

however they are, or were photographed

in the lobby of the

Parkside Hotel in Victoria,

British Columbia.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Odyssey

~~~~~

odyssey

a long wandering and eventful journey

I am inclined to suggest that any journey

originating in Australia and visiting

the northern hemisphere

could be described as an ‘Odyssey’.

Last year’s travel to Canada took us about

16 hours flying time to reach Vancouver Island

to the start of our Canadian/Alaskan adventure.Falling snow on the Columbia Ice-field was

an event we had not counted on.

Our sled ride on the Mendenhall Glacier was wonderful.

Followed by the Red Carpet treatment

when boarding our

Rocky Mountaineer

Gold Leaf Carriage.

 

 

 

Our Final day, not included in the tour,

was a visit to Wiseman,

a very small township

inside the Arctic Circle.

Bourke Street

Melbourne, Victoria.

Somewhere in the French Countryside.

This may say something about my taste in art,

but it is  one of my favourite images.

A one off, never, to be captured again image

of a spider web in a canola crop a few years ago.

MGW doe not share my enthusiasm.

It can even be turned into bright, stronger colours

if that is your taste.

This was my first piece of photography art.

The now defunct Weekly Photo Challenge

wanted a CD cover design.

It interested it is simply a shot of water in Corio Bay.

And I love the mood in these two images…

…of Melbourne, last week.
