Memory Mondays Week 12

Back in June I decided that I needed to do more touristy things around Halifax and what is Halifax known for? The explosion and being the first place with boats to get to the Titanic victims. One of the graveyards where some of the Titanic Victims were buried was actually just down the road from where my boyfriend lived, on Olivet street, so one day we decided to go along and take our cameras. Cemeteries are always a somber but beautiful place to photograph.

This photo was taken by my boyfriend of me taking photos, which even though that is a very common situation, I don't have very many photos of and I really like this one :)

Ballin' Berlin

Ballin' I know, I hate that word too but there is a serious lack of words in the English language at least which describe how awesome Berlin is. The city where anybody who's anybody in the creative world wants to live at some stage this city and the stories and history that it has just needs to be seen. I was there for only 2 short days but man did I walk my butt off to get to see everything I could while I was there.

I have a lot of photos in this post so I wont talk for too long but I did a Sandemans free walking tour here also and we got to see a load of different historical sites and he pointed us in the way of many of the museums and galleries that were there. What amazed me was knowing how much of the city was completely bombed in the war and has been rebuilt basically from the ground up. We saw everything from the book burning site to where Hitlers bunker was- nothing more than a car park with a bit of a green patch - see the photo of the Aussie flag shoes, that is someone from my tour standing on it. The second day I did a street art tour with the same company which was pretty awesome seeing all the 'underground' places I know I wouldn't see otherwise. I stayed at The Grand Hostel Berlin and it was the best hostel I stayed in for my whole trip.

A couple of weeks ago I showed you the photos of Amanda's maternity shoot, well around 2 weeks later I was able to meet Ariella, Amanda and Kalan's second gorgeous bundle of joy.

I really enjoyed putting these before and afters together!
