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 …

Waiting by the Library

My son Joshua had a hockey game at one of the downtown arenas here in Kelowna this past weekend. No one is allowed to watch the games because of obvious reasons, so I while I was waiting I decide to go shoot a few photos. The arena he was playing at was on the other …

Might as well stick Around

So after listening to the valuable information and points you guys gave me regarding either keeping my blog on WordPress or moving it, I have decided to just keep it here on WordPress. Making this general photography blog work with a wedding blog doesn’t really seem like something I can make work. I just don’t …

Style’n on em

Check out this cool old guy just style’n on em in the streets of Penticton. I wasn’t out for street photography the day I took this, but I was walking in this guys direction and noticed he had his own cool style going on. I was shooting with my old manual focus Nikkor-H 85mm f/1.8 …

Floating Leaf

Just another leaf picture from my last video haha. Not exactly an exciting picture I know, but it does have a calming quality to it. When I shot this photo it was honestly on a whim. I just happened to see it floating there while I was filming some b-roll for my last youtube video …

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 …

Nikon Nikkor-H 85mm 1.8

I recently got my hands on a Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 prime lens. Nikon released this version of the lens in 1964, so it’s definitely got some vintage qualities to it. I love the old look of the lens and it produces good photos. The lens isn’t perfect, but for the low price you’d pay for …

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 …

Penticton Japanese Garden

I was in Penticton yesterday just walking around taking pictures. I found this beautiful little Japanese garden. I love the colours of the trees and leaves in here. I was so happy to find this place yesterday because I didn’t feel like I had found any good pictures before I found this place. All the …

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 …
