I love old buildings

I love old buildings like this! This one is located on 23rd Ave in Portland, Oregon. 23rd is a wonderful street with a lot of great shops, restaurants and all that good city stuff. I’d imagine the apartments in this building are amazing and walking out onto a wonderful city street like 23rd would be to die for! Maybe one day ;).

Honolulu Morning View

This is the view Cameron was looking at in my last post. The view from our room in Honolulu was amazing! I spent a lot time staring out the window at it. I think most people would have wanted a straight view of the beach, but for me this was just perfect! I kind of feel like, if you seen one beach, you’ve seen them all. Sitting at this window with a coffee in the morning provided a lot of new things to see and a very inviting city to draw you into.

Where Have I Been?

As you may know from my pervious blog posts, I was recently in Hawaii. As you may also know I haven’t been blogging a ton lately. It was with great surprise that I discovered I haven’t shared any of the photos I shot in Hawaii other than the wedding photos!

My precious Instagram account (@RobMoses) has been taking all my time and attention and left nothing for my poor blog. That is all about to change, well at least I am going to give it a good try haha. First I just need to start with massive game of catch up. I have shot so many photos over the summer and only shared a handful of them here. Moving forward I am going to make the blog more of priority.

Kicking things back off here with a picture my son Cameron enjoying the view from our room in Honolulu.

Apartment Life

I was out for dinner with my wife and her parents at the Calgary Tower a couple weeks ago. I shot this photo with my Canon s120, which is a pretty awesome little point and shoot camera. The picture isn’t perfect, but it gives you a good idea of what that part of town looks like. A lot of apartment buildings over there for sure!

Bouncing Flash

exif-data-rob-moses-5d-mark-iii-28mm-1-8This 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. I should have moved in a little closer to Chris though, because I ended up cropping in a bit on this shot. Other than that I think it worked out pretty good. I bounced the flash off the wall to camera right. The bounced flash looks soft and even, can’t ask for much more than that.

Edmonton Night

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-5d-mark-iii-70-200mm-f4-isI was up in Edmonton this past weekend visiting some family. I hung out and chatted the evening away, but once it got into the night around 8:30, I had to burn rubber and hit the streets! I love Edmonton and I love some the beautiful views the city has to offer. Here is one of my favourite views of the city, taken from Saskatchewan Drive.

Colourful Front Street

Camera: Canon 6D & 17-40L @ 17mm ~ Settings: f/20 – 30 seconds – ISO 100

This is a look down Front Street in beautiful Penticton, BC Canada. Walking down this street gives a feeling of walking through a post card, everything is almost perfect. Brick buildings in odd shapes always do it for me and this particular Sassy corner did not disappoint.

Camera – iPhone 4s

Last weekend I was at my local Starbucks enjoying a coffee and testing out a new photo editing app (Pixelmator, verdict is still out). Once my editing time was up / coffee was done, I started walking home. When I got to the top of the hill I stopped to take in the sunset that was falling behind the city. Naturally I had a camera with me, so I pulled it out and put on my Nikon 100mm f2.8 AIS (manual focus) lens and shot this photo. I love this view of the city and I think this shot reflects the beauty of this vantage point.

The Bellingham Herald Building

This shot is from my favourite town in Washington State, Bellingham! The building pictured here is my favourite building in town. The Herald building is home to the Bellingham Herald Newspaper. The paper has been published since way back in 1890! (First printed as the Fairhaven Herald, then the Bellingham Herald in 1903). This wonderful building was built in 1926 and still looks great today.

Apartment With a View

There is just something about a good sunset over the Rockies that is almost magical. You get a pretty good view of it from where I was standing, but I’d imagine the view to be even better from one of those apartments! Those buildings are located on westside of downtown in Calgary, Canada. Nice location I’d say.

Seattle’s Capitol Hill

I find pictures like this with lots of little building windows in it looks best big, they seem to have a tendency to look pixelated when viewed so small like this. I was surfing some Seattle posts on WordPress this morning and it started to make me miss the city, so I went through some old pictures and found this one from 2010. It is the wonderful neighbourhood of Capitol Hill in Seattle Washington. Amazing views of the city for loads of people living in these apartments! Wish I was in one of them ;).

Fall Flare

South Calgary fall neighbourhood Canada sun set flare golden hour - Rob Moses Photography Camera: 5D mark ii & 50mm 1.8 mark i ~ Settings: 1/60th – f/18 – ISO 800

I’m sure it still looks like this in some places in the good ol US of A, but not here in Calgary, Canada haha. I took this picture a couple of months ago. Today I woke up to howling winds and snow this morning and decided it would be a good time to stay in and edit a couple of pictures I took earlier in the year :).

I like this picture because it’s not a typical view of Calgary you would see. This picture is over looking the neighbourhoods of Roxboro & Rideau Park, and believe it or not those buildings are in ANOTHER neighbourhood called Mission. Calgary is a strange place, in that you can walk 5 or 10 blocks and you’ll be in a different neighbourhood with another name. Personally I don’t see the point in that, but whatever haha.
