Fair Weather Friends

On almost any afternoon in July and August this scene would have a thousand people in it, strolling, eating and drinking, taking pictures, busking, selling crafts and artwork, performing or just having a good time. It's about as quiet as it can get at this time of year and although it makes a nice change from the summer crowds, I'll be glad to see the bustling throng return in the spring.

Thank you for a beautiful photo. The other night I dreamt that I was in Victoria, looking at the Empress and Leg. Bldgs.

I don't think I've ever seen so few people there - you must have risen very early!

Thanks JoJo!

Paul it was sometime in the afternoon when I took this but there was a bone-chilling wind blowing that I think discouraged pedestrians.

Six degrees Celsius separating me from being there doing my scribbling. +10 and sunshine is my personal minimum. It is funny to visit a place one generally associates with teaming throngs. Mornings in the summer are very peaceful, and the energy builds as numbers grow.
