Not Too Big, Not Too Small


I have always liked Halifax.
Maybe I am a bit biased since I was born here
and, except for a few years, I have lived my entire life here.

This photo was taken from the new library.
These buildings are on Morris Street in the south end of Halifax.
The building on the right was the Greek Orthodox Church
and is now condo units.

This is but one little 'snapshot' of many around this wonderful city of ours.

  3. My nephew lives in Halifax...such a beautiful place, but Oh Lord please, don't allow it to turn into condo city, I'll sincerely pray, I've lost my little town of trees and flowers and beaches and space and such incredible beauty to Condos, it's now Condo City and I hate it,....so a prayer that people In your area have enough power to stop it.

    1. Halifax is a very city and is trying to get a balance between thee old and the new, Lorraine. Sometimes they 'blow it' but mostly people are vocal about keeping its history and buildings intact.

  4. Great job with the artistic treatment in the photo. I love the palette. Wish I'd taken the opportunity to see Halifax before moving to Spain!

    1. Did you come to the city much, Margie, when you were living in Nova Scotia?
      Thanks for dropping by.

    2. No, Jim, I was just there one day. (a part of the day)
      I have family scattered over NS and spent most of my time visiting them while I was there in Oct.
      I'll get back in a few years and hope we can meet up :)

    1. Joyce, it is a very habitable city.......like a big university 'town'. but much more than that.
      It was so appealing to a large group of Buddhist followers from Colorado that they all moved here back in the 80/90's....what a great influence they have had on this city bringing their professions and perspective to this port city.

  9. Hi Jim, This is an awesome photo/sketch. I've never been to Nova Scotia, but I'd love to explore it.

  10. You do such creative things with your photos, Jim! I can't imagine what it is like to grow up in a place and stay there most of your life! You must feel very grounded. Well, you are! Have a good one!
