A Winter Walk Around Town

I went out for a little stroll around town yesterday because I wanted to shoot some photos. It wasn’t a particularly nice day or anything, but the sun doesn’t have to be out to take pictures. This set of photos has a real cool winter vibe to them and that is exactly how the day …

Olympus mju-1 Film Camera Review

I recently got my hands and a Olympus mju-1 35mm film camera. I ran a roll of Fujifilm Superia X-tra 400 through it and did a review of the camera. I got a sunset and did a little street photography in my neighbourhood in Kelowna BC, Canada. Even if your not into film photography, I …

Girls of the Night

I was just out for a little walk with my dog Juneau. Obviously I had my camera with me. Ya never know what kind of pictures might jump out at you. We were walking down the street when this girl passed by us. With all of the lights in front of us I though it …

December Sunset

I caught a little sunset action yesterday evening here in Kelowna. When I left my house I didn’t even have an idea of where I was even going. I just started driving down my street. I was about to turn at an intersection when the hill cough my eye. The sun was just about to …

Nelson Street Scene

I have always liked street scenes like this. When I look at pictures like this I always wonder things like “Where are those people going? I wonder where they are now?” I like to see life in the streets of whatever city picture I’m taking, it makes the pictures interesting to me. Of course this …

Style’n on em

Check out this cool old guy just style’n on em in the streets of Penticton. I wasn’t out for street photography the day I took this, but I was walking in this guys direction and noticed he had his own cool style going on. I was shooting with my old manual focus Nikkor-H 85mm f/1.8 …

Penticton Summer

Just a few shots from this past summer when I was down in Penticton. Penticton is a town is about 45 minutes south of Kelowna where I live. I honestly thought I’d have spent more time down there this year, but for whatever reason I only got down there a couple of times. This day …

This Block

This block is one of my favourite blocks in the city and it has been since before the library(the modern white building in the back of the scene) opened. To camera left there used to be this crazy old gas station that looked like it hadn’t changed in about 60 years haha, it was amazing. …

East Village Path Views

I used to live across the bridge from the East Village in Calgary, so I have always spent a lot of time in the area. I’ve only been gone a year, but some new buildings have sprung up here and there since I’ve been gone. I like big buildings and I think they lend to …

Fun Bridge

I love this little bridge! Even though it’s rather short, it is so fun to ride your bike over. The setting around the bridge also helps as the ambiance is near perfect. If your coming from downtown you have to ride through a tunnel first. Once your up on the bridge you are greeted with …

A Touch Darker in Portland

Street photography in Portland is great! The city is dense enough to have busy streets and the streets are beautiful. This is the perfect combination for getting good street shots, at least that’s what I think. I was just playing around in Lightroom last night editing some old photos. If you read this blog you …

One from the Streets

I used to do a lot of street photography. I kind of fell off the street photo scene in part because I started really loving to shoot with old manual focus lenses, but I dont enjoy using them for street photography. On top of that I switched to Sony and am using an adapted 50mm …
