A Bride in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia
"If falling in love is anything like learning how to spell, I don't want to do it. It takes too long."- Glenn, age 7
One hot afternoon in Lunenburg, I walked over to look out the window for a moment and noticed a bride and groom were having fish and chips at the Fish Shack across the street. It was sweet. At the table was the bride and groom, and a woman who I later learned was their wedding photographer. No wedding guests in sight, no big groups joined them. I don't know the story of their wedding day or if this was pre-wedding or post-wedding but I did have to grab my camera.
I took a couple of photos and went back to what I was doing. Several minutes later, I walked over to the window again and, as I was looking out at the water, I saw the bride right below our apartment. Ha! Again... my camera. I had fun for a moment trying to catch her without the sign covering her face as her photographer was having her move about.
I again went back to what I was doing. A bit later I went out to my car and as I was coming down the stairs, I saw her posing on a bench. I opened the car door and just before getting in, I turned to get one quick photo of the lovely bride in this colorful scene.
I only wish I would have pressed the shutter two or three more times, because right after this one shot, she gave me a big smile. I smiled back, waved, and got in the car. A fun little round of street photography.
