The title is exactly what the book is all about. Each section begins with a brief introduction to the season and how that season unfolds in our wee town of Annapolis Royal. The photographer behind the book is Melissa Fillmore, a local business person here in town. The photography was a collaborative effort, and you’ll find the names and the contact details of each photographer at the back of the book. Last year, Melissa pitched here idea to Awesome Annapolis. The group holds several pitch-nights throughout the year, and the winner receives a $1000.00 dollars to help get their idea/project off the ground. Brilliant concept, don’t you think?
Annapolis Royal Through the Seasons
From the back cover:
“Annapolis Royal is a picturesque town in Nova Scotia, Canada, with a population of approximately 500. It’s a community filled with the richness of history, art, people, and culture. Within these pages are images captured through the lenses of local photographers who desire to share the special beauty of a town they call home.”
Here’s a peek inside the book. I chose Spring since we’re enjoying spring weather and flowers in Annapolis Royal right now.
