The B section of Wednesday's Nelson Star is A Day in the Life of Nelson and features 16 pages of photos.

Documenting Nelson

One of the goals of the Nelson Star is to include the name or face of every community member in our pages each year.

One of the goals of the Nelson Star is to include the name or face of every community member in our pages each year. Of course it’s an unreachable target, but we like to set the bar high.

In today’s paper you will find our special A Day in the Life of Nelson photo section. Earlier this month, a team of Star photographers hit the streets to document a typical Wednesday. We were not in search of the dramatic, just a regular day as it unfolds.

The project was a welcome break from our usual routine. We were not seeking the next big story out of City Hall or following the controversy surrounding our education system. Instead, the photographers found the people who simply make up the fabric of this great community. Everyday tasks and interactions that remind us of why we live here.

Mayor John Dooley and MLA Michelle Mungall get enough ink over the course of our 100-plus editions each year, it’s always nice to uncover some of the people we’ve missed along the way to fulfilling that lofty goal of getting all of you between our fold.

It would take 100 photographers and 1,000 pages to truly tell the story of the day properly, but that wasn’t in the budget. We do think in the 16 pages that have been put together in this edition, you will find a nice snapshot of Nelson life. From sunrise to sunset and a little beyond, we found plenty to document.

This is the first Day in the Life of Nelson this paper has put together, but it won’t be the last. We look forward to seeing you through our viewfinder the next time.
