Picture spam: Victoria(n) Water Lilly House (1898)

22 May, 2007 at 2:14 am Leave a comment

With my new mobile contract came a free new mobile with camera. I hardly ever use the phone, but I’m fascinated with the idea of having a camera with me at all times.

We have a beautiful botanic garden here in my hometown, and I went there to test this new camera. I was impressed by the results, and I thought I share.

One of my favourite parts of the botanic garden is the “Victoria House”, which was built specially for housing the giant Victoria water lilly. It was built in 1898, but it’s a copy of a Victorian building from 1840. As many of you like the style of that aera, I thought I post the pictures here. 🙂
