This Calls for a Celebration: The Armview

The Armview restaurant and Lounge is located in Halifax, in the Canadian provence of Nova Scotia. The Armview has seen a great number of celebrations in it's day, and this year it topped it off with celebrating it's 60th year, a great feat for any restaurant! It is also one of my favourites for celebrating a special occasion or just catching up with friends over a milkshake.

The Armview restaurant and diner has its’ name as it is situated close to the Halifax arm which is an inlet coming in off of the harbor. This is a nice area for families as there is a great walking trail and even a small beach close-by. It is an easy walk from the Halifax shopping center, great for lunches out with friends then hitting the mall after.

The Armview celebrated its’ 60th anniversary this summer and although the restaurant had a facelift a few years ago it still maintains a lot of the same charm. I love seeing vintage throwbacks in any situation but the Armview does it with sincerity.

They have a great menu which is like a blend of an old school diner and local and international flavors such as the peanut butter burger and my favorite, the sesame chicken stir-fry. The lounge is a great place to chill and have a relaxing drink and I’m told they have a great wine list and even do special events with DJs and do wine tasting events.

    The World, According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.

    A Salute to the Masters: Ducks (A Tribute to Henri Cartier-Bresson)

    This article is dedicated to arguably one of the most famous street photographers in the world, Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908-2004). On this occasion, I felt obliged to write a tribute to this great artist whom I consider the "Mozart of Photography." His photos are inimitable, and to try to reproduce his innate sense of composition, harmony, and choice of the right moment is but an illusion. So I chose an unusual way to pay tribute, the only way possible for me. Take a look!

    Solar Eclipses and Beyond

    The skies were busy with magic today — or maybe it was just the solar eclipse that caused all that ruckus? Decked out in space-age goggles and other various sun viewing paraphernalia, groups of people gathered as the moon moved between the sun and the earth this morning across Europe. Only a few lucky folks witnessed the total eclipse, and here at Vienna HQ, the greatest moment of the partial eclipse happened at 10:45 A.M. and lasted only a few minutes. We stopped everything we were doing to join the sky watchers crew and share in this astonishing moment. Check out these brilliant solar-inspired shots to celebrate the occasion!
