Photo trawl

Dave Johnston the Chalkmaster working at the Halifax Busker festival.The downside to taking lots of photographs is having to trawl through them afterwards to find the good ones. Doing this is a mixed blessing. On the one hand finding an good, and more rarely a captivating photo, is a great reward. On the other hand looking at so many photos that just don’t work is frustrating. On seeing a photo I have questions running through my mind: what was I trying to capture? Why did I expose it like that? Why couldn’t I get rid of that extraneous object from the frame?

Until I’ve worked my way through the Halifax, Peggy’s Cove, and Lunnenburg photos I will not have anything to illustrate the next stage of our holiday. Once I have been through the remaining photos I should be able to write some more about our brief trip around central Nova Scotia. I may, time and motivation permitting, even get around to creating a proper album for the trip.
