    OOH!
    VERY NICE, George ! :)

  • Glad you liked it Stan. I set the camera on a railing by the water and took about a dozen shots. Most came out OK, but I liked this one the most. We’ve been back a few days but still trying to catch up. I’ll drop u an email..LOL!

    hey George this is really great ..takes me back …?..do you have any photos of the A.Murray McKay bridge …my dad was an iron worker and he worked on the bridge back in the 60’s …he also is a survivor as in the winter of 1966 just before Christmas he and three other workers fell into the harbor ,,,when the scaffolding they where on buckled….great shot on this old lady though….Steve

  • Hi Steve, glad you liked the shot, but sorry, I don’t have the McKay. Problem is, it’s right at the Narrows and very hard to get a place where you can get a good view of it, unless you’re in a boat. Both sides of the harbour have been built up so much. There is a little park where Africville used to be but you can only get an “end-on” sort of view which didn’t appeal to me. Maybe next year I’ll con a ride on someone’s boat! Amazing your Dad survived the impact and the cold water, it must have been a terrible shock to his body!

    I’ve been meaning to try my hand at the McKay George. I’ll see what I can do…?

  • Thanks Phil, I’m sure Steve would be happy to see one. I was going to try from Seaview Park and I guess the “end-on” view would be better than nothing. I would have liked to take a walk on the Angus L. and shoot from there but the opportunity just didn’t present itself. Way back in the late 50’s I took a bunch of 35mm. from the Angus.L one evening, I must post a couple of them. City sure looked different then!

  • P.S. Steve is originally from up Parrsboro way. He’s got fabulous shots of the Northern Lights on his site.
