Photographer's Note

Victoria is the capital city of British Columbia, Canada.

Elegant was my first impression to this cute city. The evening stroll along the Inner Harbour was a pleasure.

This picture shows the Parliament Buildings on the Inner Harbour. There is a story behind this beautiful architecture. In 1892, a 25-year-old young man arrived on the west coast just as an architectural competition for a new Legislature Building in Victoria was announced. Francis Rattenbury had no professional credentials but was blessed with both talent and ambition. He submitted a set of drawings and, to the surprise of all, beat out 65 other entries from around the continent.
