Here's another view of the Legislature with Queen Victoria's statue. This statue is on such a high plinth that you can't see it well from up close. This was shot with a telephoto lens from across the street. The statues Euro-Canadians erect are perhaps a little analogous to First Nations totem poles. In the background we have another totemic figure on top of the Legislature - Captain Vancouver.

She looks younger here than the version that stands on the west flank of Centre Block on Parliament Hill.

I was never able to get a good pic of her cause of it being up so high. Great idea shooting from across the street!
