About This Walk

Come and join several Nova Scotian photographers on Saturday, Oct. 5, for a photowalk through historic Shelburne, between 4 and 6 p.m., plus sunset.

Shelburne – you’ve seen it on TV (The Book of Negroes) and at the movie theatre (The Scarlet Letter). Now, get it into your own collection of images.

We’ll gather outside the Dory Shop Museum at 3:45 p.m. for a round of introductions and a short event briefing before we set off to explore Dock Street, going towards the Osprey Arts Centre. From there, we’ll make our way up to Ann St., to Hammond Street, to John Street, to King Street, and follow that back to Dock Street, working our way back to the starting point to conclude our walk.

Optional, for $10, one can buy a full-day pass to Ross-Thomson House, J. C. Williams Dory Shop, and the Shelburne County Museum; the three museums are open from 9:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. (Shelburne County Museum Complex)

Oct. 5 is also Town-wide Yard Sale Day (8 a.m. – 2 p.m.) so there may be a lot of photo ops in the side streets, too. Although this is technically outside the walk hours, these images will be allowed.

While the walk is on Saturday, why not stay over and visit the Black Loyalist Historical Site?

    Christa Davis Hi Kevin, Is this walk still happening? How many people are signed up to go? Thanks, Christa

    Kevin Finch Well, tomorrow is the BIG DAY! We have 10 walkers, including myself, a great group for this location. The Weather Network predicts sunny skies with a high of 14C, with a light northwesterly wind; 65% humidity. If we get some residual clouds from today’s rain, perfect! Despite the forecast, I will bring some raincoats for the cameras, just in case. If you don’t have one and won’t get to a camera store in time, pick up a cheap plastic shower cap, the kind you get in hotels and motels; works a charm, says Bill Fortney. I did a reconnaissance trip and here’s a few good things to know… There is a small community – Jordan Branch – at the intersection of Hwy 103 and 3 with some interesting old buildings right on the highway. You could take Jordan Branch Road, which turns into Hwy 3 / King Street in Shelburne. If you have the time on your way into Shelburne, hang a left from Jordan Branch Road onto Sandy Point Road to get to the lighthouse. It’s not Peggys Cove but interesting nonetheless. Like most of you, I’m travelling down on Saturday (morning, for me) and I’m staying at Harbourside Cottages ( on Saturday night and heading home on Sunday. Hope is in Wolfville tonight and will join us in Shelburne tomorrow. Traditionally, a Kelby Worldwide Photowalk runs for two hours, that’s 4-6 for us. After that, we’ll take a break – I suggest at The Sea Dog, on Dock Street – and then we can catch the sunset. Sunset is at 6:55pm. PhotoPills ( says the Golden Hour is 6:17pm to 7:13pm and the Blue Hour is 7:13pm to 7:24pm. Or, is that the Blue 11 Minutes? If you need to get in touch, my cell number is 902-233-8753. I look forward to seeing you at 3:45 pm outside the Shelburne County Museum, 11 Dock Street.

    Kevin Finch Hi, you should have received instructions from Worldwidephotowalk about how to submit your images to the contest; check you trash/spam/junk folders, if you didn't see one come in after the walk.

    Kevin Finch A reminder... Contest submissions are due Monday, October 14, 2019 - that's right, Thanksgiving Day. No submissions received so far.

    Kevin Finch Well, all the submissions are in and the top pick for our walk goes to Rona Leahy. Congrats, Rona! I want to thank everyone for their participation this year; we had a lot of fun and it was great to get the gang together again. Special thanks to the Guras, who travelled up from the US. So far, we've seen five images from the day. If anyone sends me up to five of their favourite images of the day, I will post them on the Nifty50 space. Images should be 1200ppi on the long side, 120ppi resolution, Adobe RGB or ProPhotoRGB. I also caught a few images of you folks snapping away; I'll post some of those, too. I expect to be in the US for our Thanksgiving next year so it's unlikely that I will be leading a Canadian Kelby Photowalk but I hope to be putting a walk or two together next year. If you've been receiving e-mails from me, you will continue to do so unless you ask to be dropped from the list. Also, keep an eye on for info. i hope to see all of you again, soon. Thanks, again.

    Kevin Finch Also, keep an eye on Scott's page - - later this month to see the prize winners and honourable mentions. He said "The Week of October 28th"... And, apologies, we did not make a group image. Geez, I take a year off and my planning goes down the tubes! (grin)

    Kevin Finch Hi, Scott's published the Top 10 Finalists and Grand Prize Winner at while the results of the Walk Leader's competition and his Honorable Mentions will be published next week. As the Toronto Maple Leafs have been saying since 1967: Oh well, there's always next year... (grin) Seriously, I want to thank all of you - again - for joining the walk and submitting such great images.
