Ski Village Sign

I took this picture up at the Silver Start Mountain Resort in Vernon, BC. I though the snow on the sign with the ski village background looked just perfect. I didn’t get anything at the bistro so I can’t speak to their product, but the sign is good! 😉

Wine

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-5d-mark-iii-100mm-f2-8-macro-is-usmThis was a fun picture to take. I had one large softbox set up to camera right. The background was a board with a bunch of white lights stuck to it with crinkled tinfoil stuck in between them. I shot this handheld while a friend of mine poured the wine into the glass. We made a bit of mess, but it was definitely worth the trouble.🍷😀

Mexican Stars & Streets

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-6d-28mm-1-8I shot this one last year while I was staying at some resort between Cancun and Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. I didn’t have a tripod with me at the time so I couldn’t get the composition exactly how I would have liked it. I just rested my camera on a ledge and shot a long exposure. Turned out ok, good enough to share anyhow ;). Oh and I just thought I’d add a few random street photography shots from one night when I was walking around Playa Del Carmen.

Great Horned Owl & Friend

exif-data-canon-t3i-70-300mm-is-do-rob-mosesThis big Great Horned Owl was hanging out in a tree in front of my house last month! He was sleeping there for a few hours and after a while this Magpie bird came over and started hanging out with it haha. Pretty cool thing to see out your bedroom window 🙂

A Dolphin Push

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-6d-50mm-1-4I was just walking around this Resort I was at in Cancun last year when I stumbled upon this. The dolphins would push people around in this pool by their feet! It was amazing to see and looked like it would be a lot of fun. I personally can’t support locking up any type on animals (btw I do not look down on people that do, that’s just how I feel) so I didn’t try it myself, but this lady seemed to be enjoying herself. 🙂

The Mount Baker Block

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-6d-17-40mm-lThis beautiful building in Port Townsend, Washington was put up by the first mayor of the city Charles Eisenbeis in 1889. If you like old buildings like this, a visit to Port Townsend is a must. The whole town (although it is small) is filled with such gems. I’m not sure when my next trip down that way will be, but I can’t wait!

Tokie The Cat

Sony a7ii & 55mm 1.8

Sony a7ii & 55mm 1.8

This lovely little creature is my wife’s parents family cat. Her name is Tokie and the shenanigans she has caused over the years has been that of legend. To keep things as brief as possible I will tell you just one Tokie Tale.

Last summer while visiting, I was letting Tokie inside before I went to bed. I open the front door and call for her. Sure enough like a good cat she comes prancing up to the door. As Tokie is nonchalantly walking by, I kind of notice something by her face. I close the door and scurry over to her as she’s walking down the stairs. When I stop her to get a better look I see a scene that looks straight out of a cartoon. There it is, a little tail wiggling around!!! “TOKIE!” I got her trapped half way down the staircase at a corner turn and lunge forward to grab her. In true cartoon style she spits the little mouse out! LOL The next thing I know I am franticly shoeing away a cat and trying to save a mouse. The mouse lays on the floor for 2 or 3 seconds as Tokie makes a run for it, then BOING! The mouse is back up on all fours and dashing from one way to the next. As I try and keep him in the corner I call for back up (waking up more than a few people I’m sure). Once the calvary arrives we get the mouse in tupperware container and back out the front door to fight another day. That mouse had one hell of a story to tell and just by the fur of his neck he had the chance to tell it. 🙂

Tokie the cat is a wild one to say the least, but I wouldn’t (and neither would she) have it any other way!

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Years! I was away visiting family over the holidays and never found myself in front of a computer, hence the lack of posts over the past week or so. Anyhow, I’m back in Calgary and it’s freezing as usual, so here’s a shot I took downtown of some cold buildings on your average deep freeze night in Calgary. 🙂

Stay Warm! Rob

Mustachio

rob-moses-exif-data-canon-5d-mark-iii-50mm-1-4I was kicking around the Kensington neighbourhood here in Calgary on Saturday night when I spotted this guy on the street. You could see the mustachio pop’n off right away and there was no way I wasn’t going to get a picture. I just walked up to him and said “Hey man, can I take your picture?” He said “Sure!” he smiled, I took the shot and it was all over in about 8 to 10 seconds. I love these kind of quick interactions with strangers on the street, it always makes for a more interesting night.

Special Delivery Spokane

I was walking around this neighbourhood (South Hill) with a friend of mine in Spokane. We had just took a stroll in a nearby park when this mail truck caught my eye. I thought the beautiful house the mailman was in front of made a nice little scene, so I snapped this photo.

Enjoy The Lights

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-5d-mark-iii-50mm-1-4I took this picture right when I showed up to this location. These two were standing right in the perfect spot for me take a picture of them. They seemed to be enjoying the lights and from what I could tell they didn’t mind me taking their picture. I was shooting with a 50mm lens, so as you can imagine I was quite close to them and I am certain they could hear my camera clicking away. I suppose they were just another friendly couple in Edmonton, which I am sure there are many :).

John Finch Park


On my last trip to Spokane, Washington a friend of mine took me for a little tour around John A. Finch Park. Even though most of the leaves had already fallen off the trees there was surprisingly still a lot of photographer buzzing around shooting photos. We must have seen at least 7 or 8 photographers there (not including us). Clearly this place is a very popular photography location for Spokane photographers and justifiably so, it is a beautiful park and from what I hear, summer and early fall is especially wonderful. I’ll have to make it out there a little earlier next time.
