A couple Halifax photos.

Sackville Street with the empty lot where Skye is supposed to go in 2021. I wonder if that will still be possible after the pandemic.


The Alexander, which has some nice heritage buildings nearby at street level. This hoardings up are for a lowrise building.

I thought this was an interesting one too. Deeper in the South End of Halifax. This area isn't photographed as much but has some nice older apartment buildings and large houses:

I love the sheer width of the fleuve St. Laurent at Rimouski. It is made even more striking by that island (st. Barnabe).

^Quand tu viens du Bas-Saint-Laurent, le Saint-Laurent ressemble plus à une grosse rivière à l'ouest de Québec qu'à un fleuve.

Ok, j'arrête... bientôt.

Spring Garden Road, Halifax, taken during the past couple days. This is normally a busy area where you see crowds of people waiting to cross the intersection. Still not as busy looking as normal but noticeably busier than the "apocalypse" period.

Around here traffic is lighter than normal but clearly way up from the covid low-point (which I guess was early April or so).

Quite like this shot - well composed. Looks like an inviting outdoor space with minimal shade from the nearby towers.

MacKay bridge, Halifax

I thought these were interesting too. Some newer homes viewed from a kayak on the Northwest Arm. A lot of the bigger houses even in the old parts of Halifax are on secluded and even sometimes private roads and are hidden except when you're on the water. Of course even the expensive areas have unsightly power lines everywhere.

Chebucto Landing area. One of those public spaces that seemed average in 2000 but is now kind of behind the times, although it has some nice buildings nearby. The small blue tower/monument is allegedly Canada's oldest working public clock, manufactured in the UK in 1767. It is the preserved clock tower of an old naval dockyard building, with the original clock mechanism inside.

Yeah that’s one thing Calgary does extremely well; core and inner city park spaces, both in quality and sheer quantity of the spaces. The one in my post there is the Harley Hotchkiss Gardens. There’s a nice water feature on the south side (to the right outside of frame) that serves as a large seating area as well.

The area is... affluent. Like well established working professionals but maybe not outright rich. Some more than others.
