One of my favourite things to do is watch the planes at the Halifax/Stanfield International Airport. Often I will sit in my car on the Old Gusborough Rd (like countless others) for hours and watch the planes land and take off. Well this day I decided to rent the 15th floor corner room of the Alt Hotel. I had rented this room many times before usually when I’m flying early in the mornings, but for this particular weekend, it was purely to sit in the super comfy leather chair with my feet up on the window sill.
You’d think it would get old after a few hours but nope… I sat there for like 12 hours just watching the planes. Obsessed? Yes!
The second day I was there Lindsay joined me for a few hours so we could shoot. We used every available space in the small hotel room – the bed, the windows, the concrete walls, and that gorgeous shower! We also snuck out into the hall and the staircase to grab a couple shots.
But that was nothing compared to being nude at the end of the runway.
The Oldham Road runs behind the airport and into Enfield and is not as heavily travelled as the Old Gusborough Rd. So we got some amazing shots on the road, in the bushes and right where the runway ends. Obv it was fenced off so we couldn’t get onto the runway but we were pretty close. Yes there were a couple of cars that drove by during our shoot but Lindsay wrapped herself in a blanket – you could hear when any cars were coming so she had lots of time to cover up.
Ha! We actually had a plane fly right over us as well – Lindsay was so excited…. I’m sure the pilots were as well. :p
We headed back to the hotel to finish the shoot in the windows and in the shower and then she left for the west coast…. Hopefully she moves back soon so I can shoot her again and again! 🙂
