Test Shot

This was just a test shot I took the other night. I’m thinking I will use this location for a portrait shoot. I think it’d be cool to have someone leaning on that railing on the right side the frame. With a person there I’d change up the composition a little, but it would be …

All The Lights

I had drove by this place a few times and I knew right away that I was going to go back one night and shoot a photo. I love all the lights on the sign and the strings of lights above the deck. These type of lights always look good in long exposures. The place …

The Great War Monument

I shot this one last night beside a fire hall downtown in Kelowna. I suppose it’s a war monument dedicated to some firefighters who went off to war. I don’t know anymore than that as I didn’t see any plaques around or anything with more info. Maybe I’ll meet some old guy there one day …

Boca De Tomatlan & Yelapa

A picture from Boca De Tomatlan, Mexico came up on my Instagram stories “memories” yesterday. Once that memory was in my head I had to go and look at some of the pictures I took there last year. I love looking back at these pictures because those trips down there are always so fun. My …

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 …

Bellingham

Just a few old school pictures from back in the Bellingham days. I used to spend a lot of time in his town because I lived 20 minutes away and I really like this place. I haven’t been back to Bellingham in years and now that I’m living in a reasonable distance away (a 4 hour …

A Touch Darker in Portland

Street photography in Portland is great! The city is dense enough to have busy streets and the streets are beautiful. This is the perfect combination for getting good street shots, at least that’s what I think. I was just playing around in Lightroom last night editing some old photos. If you read this blog you …

A Little More Mexican

In the more touristy areas of Mexican vacation destination cities it can sometimes feel like your talking around in the US rather than Mexico. This I found especially true in Playa Del Carmen. Now don’t get me wrong, I love the United States, but when I’m in Mexico I like to feel like I’m in …

This View

I really love the view of Kelowna from the westside. I have some ideas for photos on this side, but I kind of want to wait until the leaves come back out. I might do that, but I might not have the patients. I guess theres no reason I cant do both haha. Anyhow, for …

Draw Me In City

I was taking a look through some of my Honolulu photos and came across this one. I was surprised to see I hadn’t shared this one before. This is my favourite type of picture and I could stare at this one for a long time, so I cant imagine why I didn’t get this one …

Lake is Life

No matter what the weather is doing I love this lake. I grew up by the water is almost all the places I lived (and there was a lot) growing up. Other than when I lived Phoenix AZ I spent my life living by either the ocean or a big lake. When I moved to …

Brighter Days

I feel like I needed to add a little brightness into the blog. So many of my pictures have been on the darker side lately that I figured I’d go into my files and find something bright. I struggle with keeping dark photos dark and I always want to lean on the brighter side. I …

Penticton Winter Night

I took a little zip down to Penticton BC last night. I wasn’t there to shoot photos, but I thought it would be a shame to not at least try and get one shot while I was down there. I figured something by the beach would be good but it was really dark so I …
