Burnaby

I was just sitting around one night in Vancouver and didn’t have any plans. I thought rather than just sit around doing nothing I’d hop in my car and go look for a photo. I didn’t have any plans on where I was going, I was just going. As I was driving I decided an …

Sunsets are the Best

Sunsets looks so nice no matter what the suns is setting over. Beaches and nature are great, but a more urban sunset is just as beautiful to me. When I shot this photo I was actually trying to get a nice beach sunset shot, but I couldn’t help but notice the beauty unfolding behind me. …

Better at Night

Cities always look better at night. I shot this photo from the exact same spot as the last photo I posted. I took this picture with a Minolta 50mm f/1.4 and the last one was with a Nikon 105mm f/2.5. We were only staying at this place for a few days, but I kinda miss …

Finding Inspiration in Kelowna

I was out shooting a few photos last night in Kelowna. I haven’t been going out at night as much as I used to. I usually blame my lack of going out on there not being enough city for me to get excited about here. However, I found last night that it doesn’t even matter …

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 …

This Block

This block is one of my favourite blocks in the city and it has been since before the library(the modern white building in the back of the scene) opened. To camera left there used to be this crazy old gas station that looked like it hadn’t changed in about 60 years haha, it was amazing. …

Good Night Kelowna

This is a view of Ellis Street downtown in Kelowna. I had the idea for this picture when I was driving down this street one day. When I was thinking about this photo I pictured a lot more apartment lights on. I guess most people were already asleep or they were out? Either way the …

This Kelowna View

I shot this one last week before all the snow fell. I’m sure this scene looks a lot different right now. Anyhow, I like looking at Kelowna from the other side of the lake. When I look at the city from this view it reminds me of how much good stuff we got here. Nice …

Quiet Boardwalk

On a chilly winter evening this boardwalk in Kelowna is really quiet. I’d prefer to have a person in this picture, but since it is a long exposure they would just have to be standing there on their phone or something. I suppose I could have jumped in on the picture now that I think …

This Will Do

I’m doing a kitchen renovation at my house right now. As you can imagine things are extremely busy at the moment. Yesterday I got a couple cuts on my hands putting together kitchen cabinets and one good slice on my thumb so I wasn’t exactly up for a lot of typing and editing last night. …

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 …

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 …
