Laura & Kyle – 2 Cool People I Met Behind a Pub

I met these two quite a while back but never got to posting their interview because the picture didn’t turn out. I guess I should check my shots a little closer in these types of situations haha. Anyhow, they were really nice so I decided to post it anyway, sorry for the poor picture quality guys!

So one night when I was walking around the Eau Clair Market area downtown looking for people for this blog I saw these two behind a pub that is by the market. They seemed to be having quite the little chat, but at this point in my night I had been turned down twice already and I was determined, so I interrupted them as nicely as I could and explained to them what I was doing. Clearly they agreed to talk to me and here is what they had to say 🙂

These 2 - Rob Moses Photography - People of Calgary

1. Where are you from?
– Laura: Nova Scotia

– Rob: BC

2. Why did you move to Calgary of all places?
– Laura: I was tired of Nova Scotia and I came out to work in the mountains for the summer and I ended up loving it and all my friends followed me out here, so I stayed and I love it!  

– Rob: My girlfriend at the time lived here so that kinda ment I had to live here (laughter).

– ME: Ok, well that makes sense haha.

– Rob: School as well, but you know haha. 

3. Do you like living in Calgary?
– Rob: As opposed to where I was living before? or just in general? 

ME: Just in general.

– Rob: Ya, it’s nice.

– Laura: I also love it, lost of good music scenes, good people, mountains, awesome! 

4. What do you like to do for fun?
– Laura: Go to the Ship & Anchor and drink pints! (laughter).

ME: Nice!

– Rob: I don’t really have fun, sooo?

– Laura: He’s in school. (laughter)

ME: Darn! haha.

5. If you had to describe Calgary to someone, what would you say?
– Rob: Oooooh, ummm, to be honest I’d say it’s flat and windy and brown or white, one of the two and that would be how I would describe it.

ME: That is an accurate description (except for summer when Calgary is beautiful), (Laughter).

– Rob: It’s not a very favourable one, but accurate haha.

ME: What would you say Laura?

– Laura: I would say it’s very multi cultural and lots of nice people from all over the world, because Calgary wasn’t as big as it is on it’s own. And lots of opportunity for jobs and just good people. I miss the water though, definitely miss the ocean. 

ME: I also miss the water!

– Laura: Where are you from? 

ME: I am from Vancouver.

– Laura: Ahhh, ya it (Calgary) had a beach it would be perfect.

ME: Totally.

6. Ok so just to wrap this up, have you ever ridden a horse?
– Rob: Mmmm ya. I can’t remember when last, but I know at some point.

ME: Ok, have you (Laura) ever ridding a horse?

– Laura: I have, I used to take ridding lessons and I did in Banff on a trail ride, it was awesome!

7. Nice! Is there anything else you would like to add?
– Laura: It was nice to meet you and we gotta get back to work haha.

– Rob: Flames suck! (Laughter) 

– Laura: GO MONTREAL! 

ME: Thanks guys, I appreciate it!

1. Where are you from?
Originally, I’m from a small farming community south of Brooks called Rainier (Alberta, Canada).

2. Why did you moved to Calgary of all places?
I moved here to go to university and I’m still going to school!

3. Do you like living in Calgary?
I have to say I wish it were warmer! Summers are a bit too cool for me and winters are definitely waaay too cold! That said, it’s my first experience living in a city, so I have to say it has been pretty good overall.

4. What is it about Calgary that you like?
It is so much easier to access arts events! And grocery stores and pretty much everything else too (compared to home anyway). Arts events take the cake for me though.

5. What do you like to do for fun?
Well music is probably my number one ‘fun’ activity. I love performing and seek out new opportunities whenever I can.

6. If you had to describe Calgary to some one, what would you say?
Well it seems to bridge country and city. Returning from travel adventures, I’ve definitely noticed a more country-ish vibe, but it definitely feels city-ish coming back from home.

7. Have you ever ridden a horse?
Yup! Not in recent years though 🙂

8. Anything you’d like to add?
Hmm…I can’t think of anything else but probably will after this is published!
