This photo may not immediately give away my whereabouts on Sunday, and that's because I spent the day enjoying a grand tour with a fellow CDPBlogger who took me to places frequented mostly by locals. The city is beautiful Victoria, British Columbia, Canada where I was attending a lecture and benefit concert Saturday at the University of Victoria concerning forging an end to child soldiering around the globe. I had a wonderful time discovering much more of Victoria on Sunday with Benjamin Madison, whose Victoria Daily Photo I have greatly enjoyed for quite some time. It is so fun to not only go visiting favorite photo haunts of someone whose work and writing I admire, but to discover through conversation a depth and breadth of life experience and common threads of interest and influence that seem uncanny. Thanks again, Benjamin! I took this shot at Mount Douglas, a small peak that gives a grand overlook of Victoria and the southern portion of the island and beyond. The young girl scrambling to the summit spoke to me of freedom and positive movement and the joy of life.
