I like this shot because the rehearsing and tips didn’t stop for Andrea Norwood, who held onto a lighter she used as a prop as the main character, Grace, in Bunker 6, while hair and makeup artist Candace Knocton fixed her hair. Bunker 6 was filmed over a two-week period inside the former Cold War bunker in Debert.

It’s always a fun and interesting time when on site with emergency personnel doing any sort of training exercise, and the mobile burn unit with the Nova Scotia Firefighters School was no different. It was a cold and rainy day in May when the Truro Fire Service had a chance to train with the unit in Bible Hill, and the heat from the flames was definitely a plus.

We got the call just as crews were tearing down the Aenon Baptist Church in North River on Jan. 16, and luckily Cindy Lynds Handren, left, and Jerome Frizzell were on site to watch the church being demolished. It’s always sad to see buildings, especially churches, being torn down, but it had to be done for safety reasons.

I love the expression of Kate Dufresne, centre, as two of her three pet mice crawled unexpectedly onto the top of her head. Dufresne, along with Alicia Tripp, left, and Kaitlin McDonnell, was disappointed to learn the Dalhousie Agricultural Campus where they attend was going to be changing its pets-in-residence policy in the upcoming school year.

Being able to catch that unrehearsed moment between a family that has a tough time ahead is one of the best things with working in the business. Here is Kristen Langille with her two daughters, Abbie, 11, and then-seven-month-old Georgia together in the family home in August. Abbie was born deaf, and Georgia is deaf and blind, and may never walk or be out of diapers.

Having seen Grease on film and performed on stage, seeing the fun that students at Cobequid Educational Centre - Arjen Blaauwendraat, from left, Chris Vincent, Alex Purdy, Adam Smith and Ryan Menzies – had during a rehearsal in April brought back a lot of memories of the classic production. The students did a phenomenal job on Grease, which ran almost daily for a week.

In my eight years in the business, my first chance at spending some time on a shooting range came when the Truro Police Service purchased Colt C8 semi-automatic weapons in the spring. Constables Scott Milbury, foreground, and Ed Cormier were the two officers to conduct training with their colleagues on the weapon, which were to be in service with members as early as the summer.

After delay after delay, it was great to see the Wilsons Aquatic Centre at the Rath Eastlink Community Centre open during the long weekend in May. About 150 people jumped at the chance to use the new facility, which offered $2 swims throughout the day.

When taking pictures, I like to be on the same level as my subject. If they’re up high, so am I. If they’re low to the ground, I won’t hesitate. I would have laid down to get a photo of Martin Pitts with Royale Floors laying tile on the leisure pool in the Wilsons Aquatic Centre, but I would have gotten covered in tile dust. Instead, just angle, point and click.

The photo possibilities with Sean Hoover and Daniel Gee as they decorated for Halloween were endless, but I love this photo of the zombie ‘Patti’ watching over some of the pumpkins the two carved for their haunted patch.

While I couldn’t get up to Kevin Ogilvie’s height, the angle and composition of this photo still show how high the Kohler Klimbing Wall at the Rath Eastlink Community Centre is. The 69-year-old North River man couldn’t wait to use the 46-foot wall after a career as a tree climber 40 years prior.

I’ve never seen the sport of sheep herding, but Upper Stewiacke’s Leroy d’Entremont was just one of the entries into sheep herding trials held early in November in Lower Onslow. Sheep herding is definitely a skill that requires a lot of work and attention.

This photo catches my eye because of the expression on Brody Antle’s face as he talks with his grandmother, Linda Swart, during a skate at the Colchester Legion Stadium with mom Maryke Swart. Children are great photography subjects, as you never know how the children will react.

One of the things a journalist doesn’t get is a snow day, so to have subjects willing to be photographed on stormy days is definitely a plus. Walking through Victoria Park on Feb. 10, Scottish terriers Madison, front, and Ceilidh were more than willing and happy to play in the snow. Valerie Richardson, left, and Dawn Holt were out walking Holt’s dogs.

Each year, the reporters with the Truro Daily News take hundreds of photographs at various assignments. Here are Raissa Tetanish's favourite photos she snapped for 2013.
