Popular bar manager David Henry dies at 67
David Henry, co-owner of Halifax’s Economy Shoe Shop and an avid photographer, died early Sunday of cancer. He was 67. Henry worked as a manager at the popular Halifax bar when it opened in 1995. A year later, Henry’s business partner and long-time friend, Victor Syperek, made him a partner. "He’s been my friend for 34 years now," Syperek said. "He was just a really lovely, really generous man." Henry wanted his wake to be held at the "Shoe Shop" in lieu of a funeral, Syperek said. Arrangements for the wake are being made.
Over the years David & Victor have been strong supporters of the local artistic community, with monthly art showings, Monday night Jazz, hosting the Annual Atlantic Film Festival Gala. The Seahorse Tavern is one of the Top Live Venues in Town. The Seahorse Tavern opened its doors in 1948 and has remained open, in this location, ever since.
This hasn’t actually been a eulogy for David J Henry but I hope you get the sense that the King of Argyle was bigger than life, a loveable character, a fierce advocate of a vibrant downtown, a strong supporter of the creative arts, & a kind gentle man who will be long remembered by all who knew him. I will miss his smile, his stories, watching him work the room and flirt with the ladies …. The king has died ….
In closing I leave you with a short video that gives you a peek at the man….
SPRING IS HERE, Farch is almost over, and the time to head out and get the creative juices flowing is now!
One of the great things about early spring is the rushing water that makes the small streams and rivers so photogenic.
Playing with water can present some challenges, but with a little practice, you can get some great water pictures to adorn your walls.
One of the common things to do with fast-moving water is to use a slow shutter speed to give a sense of movement. There are a number of ways to do this, but the easiest is to close down your aperture. (Bigger number, smaller hole.)
