Halifax (Nova Scotia, Canada) and Surroundings

Originally created by the Mi'kmaq (First Nation) and transformed by the British as arrival point for colons, this pretty city mixes modern buildings and ancient ones. Nice bridges, wall paintings and foggy weather are perfect subjects for lomography.

I’m going there quite often to visit my beloved girlfriend. It’s a really pretty city with lots of stuff to capture. Its position relative to the Gulf Stream makes its weather very rainy and foggy. Which is bad for the mood but good for the lomos!

Walking around down-town is pleasant, high-tech all-glass buildings are touching old classic stone buildings, and this great architectural contrast is at first a bit perturbing, but after all makes some pretty nice shots. The cultural life is surprisingly well developed, street-art a bit everywhere, and numerous festivals (we went to the multi-cultural festival, and also to the sea-food festival. Which have nothing to do with each other. Or maybe the fact that we ate amazing stuff in both…).

Taking a car for a ride around Halifax may lead you to some very nice spots as peggy’s cove (see dirklancer’s beautiful lomolocation about it), nice parks (especially pleasant point park) and beaches. The area is called the “Maritimes” by Canadians as fishing was a big part of the region’s history. I ate the best fish and ships of my life there… And lobster is so cheap that you can eat some every week!

And a last important point for us, lomographers, is the amazing photo lab “Carsand-Mosher” which makes perfect X-pro for less that 5 $CA. They are super friendly and the results purely amazing. But maybe I was especially excited because these were my first x-pros ever!

Here are three galleries, with their specs:
