Photo Friday: Halifax graffiti

A while back, I was inspired to take a walk around Halifax looking for some graffiti to shoot. I was looking for bright colours, bold lines and the beautiful texture that you tend to find when paint meets brick and stone.

For these shots, I wanted to shoot with a higher aperture. I wanted to capture the texture and grit of each scene; the deep grooves and bold colors. With a tripod and long exposures, I was able to do just that.

When I first moved to Halifax, I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to find any inspiration to take pictures in the city itself. I was much more accustom to photographing natural, rural spaces that I doubted I’d find anything that appealed to me.

The reality is – if you’re able to open your eyes, every setting has great shots just waiting to be found.
