I had to pace myself at the Savour Food and Wine Festival's Imbibe event! So many unique cocktails, designed by Nova Scotia's best mixologists, made for a fun evening.
After a glorious Thanksgiving weekend, I'm getting caught up on a bit of blogging and am excited to share my annual I Love Local HFX's City Harvest adventure with you!
My two favorite days of the year in Halifax: Open City and City Harvest hosted by I Love Local HFX. These events encourage Haligonians to experience a selection of what Halifax has to offer all in one day, so that they become better ambassadors for Halifax and to get more out of life in the city. This is year three and I see more and more people participating each year. Shops, restaurants, cultural organizations, attractions, charities and government all participated in over 100 locations! The energy is always happy and enthusiastic... our sluggish spring weather didn't even slow the crowds down!
Today is Bell Let's Talk Day! I was excited to photograph the #ShineALight event at Grand Parade on Sunday evening kicking off this important conversation about mental health. Bell Let's Talk is committed to the promotion and support of mental health awareness across Canada and I was happy to see such a large crowd full of positive energy out to take part in this event. Even the family pets got involved!
I had a great time at Podcamp Halifax again this year, I always do! It was my fifth time photographing the event. It's fun to see so many new faces and to catch up with friends I see every year. It's a busy day full of conversations about social media, blogging, web design... anything internet related. We have so much creative and technical talent here in Halifax!
I loved the Quiet Parade and Acres and Acres show at St. George's Round Church this past weekend. What a stunning venue for a concert! I'm more into the sit-down-and-listen kind of shows lately and was excited to capture a few shots of this beautiful space. If you ever get the chance to go, it's a unique Halifax music experience.
