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.
