Annie in the Alley

I always love looking down this alley because of the eclectic collection of painting in this one. This is actually down the same alley as the barber shop in the pervious post. This Annie painting always stands out to me though. If your walking by the Annie just kind of catches your eye. I’m assuming …

Barber Shop in The Alley

I’ve never got a hair cut while in Nelson, so I cant say if this barber shop is any good or not. But I will say that if I did need a hair cut and I was in Nelson, this is the place I would go without question. There is something about entering the shop …

Minolta in Nelson Part 2

I uploaded the second part of my Minolta 800si / Nelson BC video yesterday. In the video I walked around a couple of my favourite parts of town and shot some photos on Kodak Gold 200 35mm film. I’m happy with how this video turned out, so I think it’s worth a watch. The picture …

Blaylock’s Gate

I shot these photos at Blaylock’s mansion in Nelson, British Columbia. I’ve driven by this mansion loads of times and every time I drive by I try to get a good look. It’s such an amazing looking house on the outside and I often wonder what it’s like inside. I know whoever owns the house …

A Calm Afternoon in Kelowna

Yesterday I met my wife after work downtown for a little stroll along the lakeside. The lake was especially calm and so was the afternoon sun. It was sweater weather and even though there were lots of people out and about the entire vibe was pretty mellow. When the water is still like this it …

Out in These Streets

I was out kicking around Calgary last night shooting some photos. It wasn’t a particularly nice night for it, because the sky was rather dark, but there were people out and the atmosphere of the city made up for the dark skies. I met 4 different people and we all followed each other on Instagram. …

River Rocks

I was down by the river the other night shooting some photos. I came across this stack of rocks set up just perfectly to shoot a photo. I was using my Vivitar manual focus lens and it was the perfect lens for this shot. The lens blurred the photo just enough to give good separation …

Bow River Night

I shot this one on Saturday night from underneath the Skipping Stone Bridge on St. Patricks Island (in Calgary). I was using my Fujifilm X-E1 with an old Canon FD mount Vivitar 28mm f/2 close focus lens. The camera and lens performed wonderfully together. This shot is straight out of the camera (other than a …

Bouncing Flash

This is Chris, I was over at his house last night for dinner. I knew he lived in the building that was off white in color, so I thought I’d see how the flashed looked bouncing it off the wall. I used a 28mm lens so I could take in some of the surrounding buildings. …

Mexican Stars & Streets

I 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 …

Abandoned Lakefront

A friend of mine took me out to this abandoned farm to shoot some photos. The place was pretty spectacular and we got a lot of good pictures there. This building was especially interesting to me, because when they built it the owners must have been so happy to have this nice structure built right by …

Neon

I love old neon signs on buildings. This particular one is quite wonderful. I love how this sign lights up the whole corner of the street. I shot this in Great Falls, Montana. The rest of the street was pretty dark and this little gem was a breath of fresh air in the dark night. …
