Back to School Brothers

Kids went back to school today! They were both really excited, more excited than I have ever seen them actually. I’m so happy they were so excited to go back, because they didn’t get a full year last year. They started a little late in the year at a new school and then the year …

Pentax 6×7

I recently got my hands on a new medium format film Pentax 6×7 kit. Well new to me, as they stoped making this model of the camera in 1989. However, the kit I got is in such perfect condition you could easily mistake it for a brand new camera. I have been wanting one of …

Quiet by The Creek

A few days ago my son Cameron and I were on a bike ride and we dipped into this wooded area to do a little photo location scouting. We found this spot, but at first nothing came to me, I just knew I loved the location. After I gave it some more though later that …

Stefany Focus

My friend Stefany from Calgary was in town over the weekend so we met up for a coffee in Pandosy yesterday. This was perfect timing for her to show up because I just got this new adapter that allows me to use my Canon EF lens on my Fujifilm XT-2! I have to say I …

Minolta 50mm 1.2 vs Pentax 55mm 1.8

I have been shooting with my Minolta 50mm f/1.2 for a long time now. I have always known the short comings of the lens and had accepted the trade offs (like lack of sharpness wide open) for the f/1.2 speed. I have also had my Pentax 55mm f/1.8 for a long time, but haven’t shot …

Post Time

Lately I’ve been posting at odd times. Mid morning has probably been a trend for me lately as I haven’t been to keen to do my blogging at night like I used to. I’m not even sure it matters, but for some reason I can’t help but think I having it ready to go the …

Waiting

I wanted to take a picture like this, but I didn’t have the location. I knew I wanted some lights in the background and I needed some kind of street light to hit me in the front. I drove and walked around Kelowna for about 2 hours before I found this spot. I tried a …

End of the Sunset

Last night my wife was doing yoga, my kids were playing video games and my dog was laying around like a sac of potatoes. Since non of the above seamed very appealing to me I figured I’d grab Juneau and take her for a little stroll around the neighbourhood. A dog needs to walk after …

How you doin?

We took the dog out for a walk by a river last night and I noticed this horse through these bushes in his or her little stable. There seamed to be a clear path to the fence so I though I’d walk over and say hi. I took a couple pictures as I do. The …

Signs

I went for a little stroll around the neighbourhood yesterday. I walked by this travellers hotel that had all these cool little signs posted on some trees and a posts. I snapped this quick one and kept on my way as I didn’t want to be hanging around any longer than I needed too. I’m …

Shoe Near By

After I shot the sunset photo out my window the other day I wanted to get another shot, but I knew I have very limited amount of time before the sunset light was gone. I quickly looked around at whatever was in the room I was in. I spotted this pair of shoes and just …

Juneau’s New Harness

Juneau got a new harness yesterday and I figured since she was style’n in her new gear I’d better get a couple pictures of her before it got all doggyfied. I didn’t spend to much time taking these picture. Just got her in the front yard and asked her to do a few poses for …

New Balance 997S

I was standing at my front window looking outside trying to think of a picture I could take while the sun was about to set. Then this idea popped into my head! My beautiful New Balance 997S’s that have been waiting in the wings would be just perfect on this dome light in front of …
