I’m leaving Halifax, NS this weekend after living here for a year and a half. I’ve been saying farewell to my delightful neighborhood one shot at a time, and the time has come to share a few with you.
Here is a peacock on a big electrical box:
The Halifax Mystery Crafter (first seen in this post) has struck again!
Here is a weird apartment that is being built in what apparently used to be a junky warehouse. I hope they keep the crossbars and make it into some kind of unique, barred-off balcony:
Husband and I have also been monitoring the progress of another major reno project in the neighborhood: a house-raising! For serious, these people are lifting up their house and putting in a ground-floor suite. Wouldn’t it be much cheaper to add to the top of the house? Apparently not (we asked the construction guys); the foundations in these old houses need repair anyway, and the roofs are fine, so it’s actually cheaper to lift the whole thing up. Crazy!
I’ll end with a shot of a window I passed by. There appear to be some zany NSCAD students living there, so that’s cool:
Look forward to my next two posts, which will mostly be photographs of some lovely (and eerie) houses in my neighborhood: Halifax real-life dollhouses and (what appear to me as) haunted houses!
Try looking at your own neighborhood through the eyes of an artist, and see what you find!
“YOU WILL LOVE EACH OTHER”.
