As I drove towards Mt. Tolmie to photograph the sun setting over Victoria, I spotted a herd of deer frolicking in a field near the university. Two does and about 4 or 5 fawns hopping around. It was too much.
I snuck around them for a while quietly shooting. The does kept their eye on me and every once in a while a fawn would sprint towards me… a little worrisome.
Initially I was unhappy with the architecture in some of my shots, but as I go through them now- those ended up being my favourites. The buildings put their habitat into perspective and this shot ended up being so sweet.
On sunday, Kavna the beluga passed away in the Vancouver Aquarium at the age of 46. Kavna inspired Raffi’s “Baby Beluga”, a song that I suspect sparked my lifelong love for whales as a child. I met Kavna in Vancouver exactly one year ago. Goodbye beautiful creature.
