Head of Security

This gigantic public art piece downtown in Calgary is a very popular photo stop for locals and tourist. It is with good reason too because the head is awesome! Security around this head is a little overboard though. For instance, don’t even think of climbing on it or even pretending to climb, security will be out there in a hurry busting your ass! haha. Also, they won’t let you use a tripod anywhere near it or on the property of the building, so you have to shoot your tripod photos from the sidewalk. I don’t know what that’s all bout, but whatever. Anyhow, the head is still cool and I like taking pictures of it.

Big City Sky

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-5d-mark-iii-70-200mm-f2-8-isIf your a photographer in Calgary and you didn’t make it out to shoot last night, you missed out! The sky was amazing at dusk and my good friend Nathan Somes and I were out there taking it all in. The idea to shoot was a bit of a last minute thing and we were racing out the door to make it before the sky went black on us. Clearly we made it, and just in the nick of time!

After we shot this location we went to shoot a couple more and we saw these people shooting off some little fireworks. I just happen to have my 2X extender on at the time and was able to grab a quick shot of that too! It was a good night to be out shooting photos. 🙂

Shiny & New

exif-data-rob-moses-sony-a850-minolta-100mm-f2-8-macroWe got a shiny new building (Brookfield Place) going up in Calgary and it’s almost done! The building is super bright right now compared to all the others. I am sure it won’t stay THAT bright, but I hope it still keeps some of that sparkly shine to it. 🙂

Uncommon Calgary

This is an uncommon view of Calgary from the south side. I personally like the view from the north better, but every now and then I’ll head over here just to remind myself there is a whole other part of the city I rarely hang out at (and I should). This picture is definitely better when viewed at a larger size, so be sure and click on the one bellow.

Fireworks Over Calgary

exif data rob moses canon 6d 70-200mm f4 ISHere is a little Calgary Stampede fireworks action from Sunday night. Fireworks are always a struggle to shoot. You need get a good one in the first few moments or the smoke takes over the scene and it usually doesn’t look as good. Thankfully I got this shot off before the smoke got to crazy.
