Victoria Scenes

Victoria Alley
Victoria Door

One of the things that I miss with the virus having closed the Canadian border is the ability to visit Victoria, BC. The trip is just a ferry ride … and the cost is cheap if you walk onboard … and the ferry terminal is in the main harbor in Victoria.

The old areas of town are a great location for photo shoots. Plenty of interesting visuals. I loved this claustrophobically narrow alley and one of the doorways that opens off it.

I thought the shadow of this tree across the door creating an interesting effect. Whenever you notice something that makes you go “huh”, it’s almost always worth a photo.

Weathering and Peeling Paint

Weathering and Peeling Paint

This is one of the bunkers at Fort Worden State Park. The steel doors are rusting and the paint is peeling (there’s uncertainty as to how long since they have been painted).

A great opportunity for abstract, still life photography.

  • Camera: Nikon D850
  • Lens: Nikkor 80-400mm set at 400mm
  • ISO 400 1/400 sec f/10

Maintenance Building Doors

The patterns on these doors is pretty amazing. I wonder if any of it is a result of covering graffiti, or if it is all just the graffiti of age.
