This past August I had the pleasure of attending Sappyfest, a weekend of amazing music that takes place every year in Sackville, New Brunswick. I think it might be one of the best kept secrets this province has to offer. In additon to the great music and art expereinces Sappy presented, the town of Sackville itself is one of the most laid back, sleepy towns in the province. Lots of fodder for phototaking as well. I’ll share a few of the shots I took over the next week or so. To start, here is the first pic.
This shot caught my eye for a few reasons. The beautiful sky, bright, blue and full of life made for obvious contrast when matched with an old building who’s time in the sun has come and gone. This, and the fact that the windows on the upper floor were removed and the openings shingled over. The best part for me was that the new shingles left the traces of where the windows once were, almost like the building lost its slight. Blinded by age and far too many years in the sun.
