Day 172—O Canada

We’re in Victoria, BC staying at the Magnolia Hotel just down the block from the British Columbia parliament building. Last evening, I looked out the window of our hotel room and could see the corner of the parliament building outlined in 3300 lights. So this evening after dark, Susan and I walked down to the wharf and I took some photos of the building. I didn’t bring my tripod so I took a chance that I could hold the camera still enough for a slow shutter speed. Today is the Summer Solstice and even after 10 PM, when I took this photo, it wasn’t completely dark so there is still some color in the sky and the boats in the wharf in front of the Parliament building are barely visible in the fading light.
