Gladys and I spent a relaxing weekend in Victoria on 24-26 April. While she went shopping, I stopped at Serious Coffee on Broad Street where I took several candid shots. These young women knew each other but were engrossed in their phone connections for some time. I could do nothing about the package in the middle of the table. The Olympus EM-1 worked well at ISO 6400 in this shot.
Victoria's china town is a small area that stands out for its bright colours, especially red. E.g., check out this fountain in the small square.
I dropped by OPUS, on the edge of china town, to purchase some frames. It was my first visit to this store and I enjoyed the strong colours of the storefront along with the orange auto parked outside.
My daughter introduced us to the Re-Bar restaurant some time ago. It is a popular vegetarian restaurant and I took this shot of the crowded interior while waiting for a table - excellent food.
Here is Gladys next morning getting her coffee at the Wild Cafe, which is rather off-beat and rustic in appearance.
I followed her shopping this morning as I wanted a new Tilley hat myself. I was also able to photograph the charming staff. The red umbrellas looked great but I also like black white for portraits - so here are examples of each.
Later in the day, various organizations marched in support of environmental awareness behind this leading earth walk banner.
I have visited the Abkhazi garden several times. This time it was full of late Spring colours on a pleasant afternoon.

Great shots, Peter, and a nice descriptive blog accompaniment!
