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 Castlegar View

I shot this photo a couple weeks ago in Castlegar, British Columbia. I used my Minolta 800si & AF 50mm 1.7 with Kodak Gold 200 film. I find that this film really shines with nice light like this. I shot a bunch of other photos this same day with the same film, but the pictures …

Test Leaves

These are just a couple of the test shots from the youtube video I posted yesterday. I just love the colour of these leaves so much I figured I’d might as well post them. If you didn’t see that video I’ll post it again at the bottom of this post. Camera: Sony a7R & Nikkor-H …

Stranger on the Bridge

I met Abel at the Peace Bridge in Calgary. We were both out shooting photos. Abel was shooting photos of the bridge and I was shooting photos of people at the bridge. I walked up to Abel and asked him if I could take his picture and he was totally down with it. I honestly …

Parking Meter Beauty

I was walking down the street in Penticton, British Columbia when I noticed this beautifully painted parking meter. I have no idea if the city sanctioned this painting or not, but it look as if they are ok with it as this parking meter is right in front of city hall. Either way, I love …

Whatcha Doing Duck?

I don’t have a clue what this duck is doing. Maybe he was just keeping his beak warm? Anyhow, I saw him sitting there on this rock and I walked over and got incredibly close to him to shoot this photo. I honestly could have reached out and grabbed him if I wanted, but I …

She was walking

It was an average fall day in Calgary and she was walking down the street through the East Village of Calgary. I too was walking down the street, however I was on a mission to find people who would let me take their picture. Just moments before I had shot another photo of a guy …

A Couple Strangers

If you watched the video in my last you post you’ve already seen this couple and you saw for yourself how I ended up taking their picture. These two we so great and they both were very keen to let me take their picture. I really love looking at these pictures of them because I …

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 …

Upside Down

I have no idea what’s going on with this tiny upside down sculpture or whatever it is. I do like it though, I think it’s pretty cool how how it seems to just be balancing there. This is right in middle of the East Village in Calgary. That is one think I like about Calgary, …

Mission Creek

Places like this are so calming. This is a popular park in Kelowna, but if you get right down to the river you’re really all alone. Sometimes being isolated can be nice, sometimes not. I guess it all depends on how busy life is at the moment. Anyhow, this spot on the creek is nice …

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 …

A Bit of Fall

Took a walk in the park yesterday and enjoyed some beautiful fall weather. And I’m thankful I did because it is snowing out right now! You know what, I’ll go take a picture of my backyard for you right now and come back and finish this. . . Ok got the picture, it will be …
