Waiting for his Ship to Come In

This past Saturday found me in downtown Halifax trying to enjoy the Scott Kelby World Wide Photowalk. I say "trying" as the rain really put a damper on my spirits. I was so looking forward to being outside and walking around looking for new and interesting things to photograph.

Instead, we ended up inside the Halifax Seaport Farmer's Market. Now, the farmer's market is a very interesting place with lots of interesting people but it's a pretty small space for a photowalk.

I did manage a trip to the rooftop where I found this fellow watching the arrival of the Queen Mary 2 and I planned this image out in my head and I was quite happy with the result. I'm glad that I at least got one shot that I liked.

Regardless of the weather it was nice to get out with some other photographers whom with I could share my addiction.

Hopefully, the weather will be more cooperative next year.

UPDATE October 23, 2011: Looks like I made out OK.  This shot ended up winning the contest for my particular photowalk. :)

UPDATE October 24, 2011: Wow!  All I can say is Wow!  Just kind of speechless.  Apparently, this shot also made it to Scott Kelby's personal favourites list - http://www.scottkelby.com/blog/2011/archives/22397
