Harbord Fall Fair

Drummer at the Halifax Busker Festival.On Sunday we stopped by the tail end of the Harbord Fall Fair. We knew about the fair from Shana’s monthly music night, the organisers of which perform in, and run, the fair.

I’ve taken pictures of musicians before, and I’m slowly getting better at it. I had previously met some of the people involved, and so I was comfortable with taking their pictures. Even with a 70-200mm lens I need to be close to my subject, and so it is important that we are comfortable with each other.

I only arrived at the fair towards the end of the day, and during the final act the light failed completely. As a result, I don’t have a good sampling of the whole festival, but I did take enough pictures to justify putting together a public album “Harbord Village Fall Fair”.

The photograph here was taken at the Halifax busker festival.
