Our weather has been so unremittingly dark and wet lately that I've really been longing for some sunshine and warmth. As I result I present today for "Somewhere Saturday" a street scene I snapped in Delhi a couple of years ago because it's full of sunshine and the relaxed attitudes that are expressive of life in a warm environment. It's also got lots of nice details that I like - such as the bicycle rickshaw man coming up over the hill, the ice cream and popsicle seller, the glorious bush of bouganvillea and the perfectly relaxed attitude of the seated man in the lower left. Delhi is noisy and hectic but I always find when I slow down and walk around there are lots of little islands of peace like this.
Situated on the far west coast of Canada, on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, Victoria is the capital city of the Province of British Columbia. Its benign climate (the warmest winters in Canada) and placid lifestyle make it a favorite retirement location as well as a popular tourist destination. About 400,000 people live in Victoria and adjacent communities. Click the photos to see them larger!
