Purdy’s Wharf

Purdy’s Wharf

Originally uploaded by wdrwilson.

Yesterday was another beautiful day and I decided to take some more KAP shots. So Pete, Greg and Alex (Greg’s 2 y.o. son) and I headed out for a few hours. I headed back to the RESL Wind Turbine site but didn’t get any really good pictures. Then we headed down to Purdy’s Wharf in Downtown Halifax. The wind was great and the reflections off the mirrored buildings were incredible.

Today I posted this photo to my flickr photostream and then shared it with the Halifax flickr group. I made a quick post about my aerial photo set and BelarusRikk replied to my post and inquired about how the photos were taken. While I was replying I checked out BelarusRikk’s photo stream and found that they had a photo of Purdy’s Wharf around the same time. Sure enough you can see the kite flying high in the sky and Peter and I standing on the wharf.

    Small world, isn’t it? Some one on the internet seeing a pic you took and was actually taking pics at the same time at the same place!

    HI Bill,

    This is a great shot of Shannon Park. I was wondering if I could possibly use this for an online project I am doing about the 2014 Commonwealth games and Halifax pulling out of the bid. It is for a school assingment (I am in my fourth year of a journalism degree at King’s College) so the website probably won’t be getting lots of hits.

    Let me know if this is OK – I would really appreciate it.

    Thanks so much,

    Vanessa Green
