Aqua Bus

These little boat buses in Vancouver are awesome. I’ve actually only used them a couple times in my life, but when I did go on them they were fun. I don’t know what the cost is these days, but when I went on them ages ago I remember it being really cheap. Anyhow, if you …

Science Center & Coffee

The Science center in Vancouver is such a unique building. I remember going there for the fist when I was a kid in the 80’s and thinking that it was bananas. Even when I look at it today it is still a crazy building and I love it. As for the mobile coffee station, well …

A Walk By The Park

I was taking a walk through Hinge Park and obviously I’m going to shoot some photos on the way. At first I just wanted the first photo. I thought it’d look nice to have someone walking by on that path. As I was waiting for someone to walk by I noticed a couple people tossing …

Olympic Village Moment

This was my first stop in Vancouver earlier this week. The Olympic Village in Vancouver is awesome. Great location, great views and plenty to do and see in a small area of the city. I find Olympic village to be a really good spot for street photography as there are lots of people around and …

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 …

Waiting by the Library

My son Joshua had a hockey game at one of the downtown arenas here in Kelowna this past weekend. No one is allowed to watch the games because of obvious reasons, so I while I was waiting I decide to go shoot a few photos. The arena he was playing at was on the other …

Pictures of Strangers (video)

When I was in Calgary in September I wondered around the city taking pictures of strangers. I wanted to shoot some photos of people with my Pentax 6×7 medium format film camera, but I didn’t have any models. I figured I might as well just go walk up to people on the street ask them …

Moody Lake

Ok so this lake isn’t called Moody Lake. It’s just the Okanagan Lake here in Kelowna, but moment I shot this photo it there was a definite moody vibe in the air. It was a strange day, because only moments before this it was nice and sunny, but as the clouds moved over the sun …

Out with Juneau

My wife Michelle and I were at the park with Juneau yesterday. I had my camera so I figured I’d shoot a few photos of her since it’s been awhile. The last picture in this post is funny to me because I had her sitting on this cliff for a picture. I shot two quick …

What does it take to scratch a lens?

Ever wonder just how much abuse a camera lens can take before scratches will start to show up? I use UV filters, mainly for protection and I was wondering this exact question so I decided to put a lens to the test. I tried “cleaning” the lens with a few different things. I shook the …

His First Real Camera

I gave my 6 year old son Cameron his first real camera today. He had been asking me for one for the past 6 months and he was very clear he wanted one like mine with a proper viewfinder, so no point and shoots would do. I told him I would be keeping my eye …

Big Orange Bridge in Nelson

I spent last weekend in Nelson, BC. I didn’t get out to shoot photos as much as I would have liked, but I did get out one night to take this picture of the Big Orange Bridge. The moonlight was especially bright and it really added something special to the picture. I shot about 5 …

Paul

This a friend of mine, Paul. We met up around midnight, downtown in Calgary. The time might seem odd and it is, but for this particular picture it had to be late at night. You see, Paul is standing in the middle of the street at busy (during the day) intersection. I wanted to shoot …
