Buildings Are Life

We are getting more tall buildings around here in Calgary. There are also more regular size buildings too for people to live in, which should be good for the city. I like it when more people are living in the centre of a city rather than in the suburbs and all the new buildings should …

Little Westfalia

I bought this little die cast VW Vanagon Westfalia to take pictures of during the winter months when I can’t take pictures of my real van haha. This is a 1:18 scale model of what looks to be a 1981 or 82 air-cooled Volkswagen Westfalia van. The detail on this model is pretty bang on. …

Before Dark

I was out shooting some photos that did not include a view of the city last night. However the location I was shooting at had a pretty good view of Calgary. Just as I was wrapping up what I was doing I took a look at the city and figured it’d be a shame not …

Calgary City Lights

I love the way cities look at night. The bright lights lighting up the streets and sky and so beautiful to me. I think it is the lights at night that really draw me into a city. I can just sit there and look at it for ages. Of course all the other things that …

Lime Bikes Parked for Winter

So if you live in any big city in North America I’m sure you go some kind of bike sharing/renting thing going on. Here in Calgary we got Lime Bikes. This a fun idea and I’m sure it comes in handy during the summer, but right now when there is snow and ice everywhere I …

Baseball in Edmonton

I guess they like baseball up in Edmonton. I don’t know this for sure, but I was just walking by one day I saw this game going on in what looks like a nice little diamond. The stands aren’t packed, but there are fans and clearly they are keeping some kind of team going, so …

Misty Montana Mountains

I shot this photo real quick as I was taking pictures of my Westfalia this summer in Glacier National Park. I figured since I was surrounded by all this natural beauty it would be a shame to not get a straight up landscape shot. It was actually raining when I took this picture and a …

Thunder Bird Motel

I was on my way out of Missoula Montana and I needed to fill up my gas tank. I stopped at a gas station across the street from this motel. The sign caught my eye right away and I knew I had to get a picture. I am sure that sign must look awesome at …

New Bridge in Edmonton

I was up in Edmonton, Alberta not to long ago and I took a stroll along one of my favourite streets (Saskatchewan Dr.) with some nice views of Edmonton. Along the way the new bridge jumped out at me when I looked at it straight on. Of course the bridge looks great from many angles, …

Grizzly Bear

My family and I were driving through Glacier National Park this summer and we saw this Grizzly bear just wandering along the side of the mountain! The longest lens I had with me was a manual focus Canon FD 100mm f/2.8. When we saw the bear my camera had on a 24-70mm so I scrambled …

BMX Riders Be Crazy!

About a month ago I took my 2 sons up to Edmonton to check out a skateboard & BMX contest. I grew up skateboarding, so while I was having fun watching the skaters, my sons were much more interested in the BMX’ers and I don’t blame them. These guys are crazy! The high flying flips …

I've been posting some of my families van pictures here and there on another blog (wordpress.letsgowestfalia.com). I figure I might as well reblog some of the post here too. :)
On our first drive through Glacier National Park in Montana I was completely blown away! I had no idea how beautiful it was. When we passed this spot on the way down I knew I needed to make a stop there to get a shot of the mountain and the van. Since stopping would be […]
