Last week I decided to dig out my Sony QX100 and snap a couple of photos with it when I was walking downtown one day. In the first shot, I was crouching on the grassy hill by the street waiting for a biker to come by, when this guy came zooming I got the shot I was after :). In the 2nd shot I was perched on this little bridge look out and just took the shot when I had a few interesting people in the shot to hold down the bottom edge of the shot.
If you’re not familiar with the Sony QX100, it attaches (or not) to your phone via wifi and uses your phone as the view finder. It then saves a 18mp shot to a micro SD and a 2mp shot to your phone for sharing (there are many other saving options). The images are pretty good considering what it is, but the lens/camera is not exactly that mobile, as it does not fit comfortably in your pants pocket.

Thanks for stopping by, Rob
The first shot doesn’t look real. The color, the buildings. It’s very interesting. The second one is beautiful.
Thank you! I couldn’t really decide what picture I liked better and had a hard time deciding on what one to use as the feature image haha.
A lovely picture..human vs glass and steel..Love it, congratulations!
Thank you very much 🙂
These are awesome photos Rob – you make Calgary look great!
Thank you Diana! Calgary is great ;).
I like the colours – almost like they have been coloured with pastels. It looks like you had a great day. it is always nice to see wonderful images of Calgary. thanks for sharing.
Well thank you for enjoying them! I did indeed have a great day and I’m glad you like the pictures :).
Calgary’s skyline is getting more and more filled in. A city that appears to be making great progress (I haven’t been there in ages, so the photos were rather surprising!). Artistically processed photos, Rob. They certainly are vibrant and eye catching!
Thanks Mike! Yes, from what I gather Calgary has grown an insane amount in the last 10 or 20 years. Even in the last 2 years since I got here I have seen buildings springing up at a rapid pace :). You should come out for a visit one of these days!
Love the movement in that first shot Rob. Both great shots. Never heard of the equipment that you mentioned, so thanks (something else to add to my list, lol!)
Haha yes, the ever growing list! lol. I know how that goes :). Thank you about the picture.
Wow, these are cool, Rob. They look like they are colored pencil renditions with real people to make them pop. Awesome work.
Thank you very much Jen 🙂 Glad you like the pictures!
nice photo……I grew up in Calgary so it brings back some lovely memories!
Oh that’s awesome! Where are you living now? Thanks about the pictures 🙂
Maybe you should buy baggier pants. Then you could tuck the lens into the pockets . . .
Haha maybe some 1993 skateboarder pants would do the trick? Lol
