The Nelson Star's annual Day in the Life of Nelson will be included in the Wednesday print edition.

An honest reflection of Nelson

This is no ordinary place and those who live here are certainly no ordinary people.

This is no ordinary place and those who live here are certainly no ordinary people. As true as that is, on June 28 a team of five photographers set out to document an average day in the life of Nelson.

In our special B section of today’s paper you will find the fruits of our labour. We think you will agree that the average day in Nelson is definitely not ordinary.

From the early morning hours to well past sunset, Nelson is a hive of activity. Those who call the Kootenays home are passionate about this place and the 20-page spread called Day in the Life of Nelson is a nice reflection of that reality.

The five photographers — Star staff Sam Van Schie, Kirsten Hildebrand and Bob Hall were joined by freelance photographers Emilee Zaitsoff and Melissa Welsh — didn’t have a very difficult time finding the faces and the places that make Nelson such a cool place every single day of the year.

Out of the morning fog we found folks enthusiastically embracing the day that awaited. Over the course of the day we found people working away with pride as they carved out their little piece of Nelson. At night the streets came alive as summer truly arrived and MarketFest helped create a festive scene in the downtown that extended well beyond its three-block set up.

So thank you Nelson for being anything but ordinary. You make documenting life in this community an enjoyable experience all 365 days.
