Beacon Hill Park

A beautiful sunny day in Victoria! The perfect day for walking and art in Beacon Hill Park. First we walked and took photos.

My photography was curtailed because I had forgotten to bring a fresh battery for my camera. However I managed to snap a pic of Jean standing under one her favorite trees.

There are giants in the woods here, including this sinuous wooden maiden.

Along the way I stopped to do an ink drawing of a plant in one of the formal beds.

Then it was home again where I whipped up a kettle of cod, leek, and potato chowder. A great day!

About Paul

I'm retired, but working at painting, photography, and song writing. We like to travel and paint plein air in new places. Of course that's also where photography comes into the picture, so to speak. Sometimes I get inspired to write songs about the people and places we visit.

    What a awakening. I get up and the first thing I see is your blog. And in it at least two striking pictures, that of Jean as forest goddess. The photo is great; she looks in charge: no trespassing, or else! She stands ready to jump on any transgressor as the spider at the center of its web. Wow!
    The second one is your ink drawing. I for one love it.
    Keep at it, and btw, remember that from time to time it is necessary to plug the bloody little stuff in. Haha! But you did better than I did in my last trip to Venice when I forgot at the last minute to take the camera I had left on my desk.
