The Great Canadian Beer Festival is an event I have been meaning to go to since my early days at the University of Victoria. Somehow though it took a whopping 8 years for me to do it. I have to thanks Kelly for this one though as with tickets sold out well in advance she won two tickets from Granville Island Brewery. If you haven’t already liked GIB on facebook you should, they have a ton of great contests that you could be winning!
The GCBF was in its 20th year for 2012 and hosted some 54 different breweries from across Canada and into the US. This was a great opportunity to try some of the BC breweries that are difficult to track down such as Saltspring Island, Townsite, Crannog and Firehall.
Full photos from the event have been posted on beermebc.com
I have been pretty slammed over the last little bit between work and getting my new project off the ground. Regardless it has been fun and things have been rolling forward. I made it to victoria last weekend to do a bit of a brewery tour and spend some time relaxing. If you have not been to Victoria it is an absolutely beautiful city and is home to some amazing beer. Head on over and check it out.
Please excuse how beer-centric these photos are but it was kind of a theme for the weekend.
This past weekend I made the trek over to Victoria BC, our lovely capital. In addition to being a beautiful city it is also extremely historical and the home of some of the best food and drink around. I lived in Victoria for about three years but left after departing from UVic. The city is amazing though and any excuse to head over there is a good one as far as I am concerned. The trip was not a photo mission so the camera only made a few appearances along the way but nevertheless here are a few pics from the weekend.
The lights on the Legislative buildings give a cheerful, warm feeling to one of the most influential buildings in BC.
The inside of St Mary’s Church is breathtaking, the stone pillars support the massively towering ceiling.
Have to rest a bit along the way and the beaches are a great place to do it. It is always nice to have a model to help make it look even better though…
Last but not least, this is from a shop in Chinatown… Can you say consumerism????
Until the next worthy adventure,
This is a race photo of the Pro-Women’s category at the BC Championships in Victoria BC. What I like about this photo is the fade on the left. This was done by framing the photo with someone’s jacket in the edge of the frame. The effect worked quite well in my opinion.
