When I was back home in Halifax for BlogJam last month, I stayed with friends who just happened to live one street away from where I had – so it really felt like I was home!
While I spent most of the time running around, filling Jam Bags and boxing up prize packs like the Instax Mini 9, provided by our generous sponsor, Fujifilm, I also made sure to take a few moments to look around and absorb some of my favourite Halifax vistas, like the iconic “candy cane” smokestacks.
The North End was more than just my home and favourite neighbourhood but, and I may be biased, it also features some of the coolest examples of public art in Halifax. In particular, the murals at Mulgrave Park are just incredible.
I was able to capture two of my favourites at dusk on my final night in town before heading back to Baltimore.
That night, as I packed up my suitcase and enjoyed some final moments of the trip with my dearest friends, we noticed some strange light in the sky over the Halifax harbour.
Upon inspection we saw that someone had released a cloud of paper lanterns into the sky.
Watching the twinkling lights dance across the night horizon was pure magic and another reason that I love this town.
