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 …

Taking Pictures

I shot this photo last night here in Calgary, Alberta. It was super cold and when I went out to shoot photos this wasn’t the idea I had. I was shooting a completely different photo before and then I ended up at this bench. When I first arrived at the bench I was trying shots …

Sunset End

I just caught the end of this sunset a few days ago on my way home from work. While I was driving I could see the amazing light shining on the buildings downtown. Unfortunately the traffic was moving slower than I would have liked and I wasn’t in a good area for a  decent shot. …

Baseball in Edmonton

I guess they like baseball up in Edmonton. I don’t know this for sure, but I was just walking by one day I saw this game going on in what looks like a nice little diamond. The stands aren’t packed, but there are fans and clearly they are keeping some kind of team going, so …

Calgary Sunrise

On Wednesday morning I was driving my children to school and enjoying this amazing sunrise. After I dropped the kids off I stopped at this city look out a few blocks from my house. I didn’t have my camera with me so I just shot this photo with my phone. I think the saying is …

Guard Lion

I knew this new lion statue was put up at a park near my house in Calgary, but I hadn’t got around to going to check it out. Last night I had a late night engagement to attend so I thought I might as will head out a little early and see if there were …

Taking In The World

During my time in Honolulu I found myself zipping through this park (Ainahau Triangle) often. One day I was riding my skateboard through the park on my way to Starbucks for an ice coffee. The high palm trees and shadows caught my eye, so I stopped for this picture. Before my camera became a necessity …

New Bridge in Edmonton

I was up in Edmonton, Alberta not to long ago and I took a stroll along one of my favourite streets (Saskatchewan Dr.) with some nice views of Edmonton. Along the way the new bridge jumped out at me when I looked at it straight on. Of course the bridge looks great from many angles, …

Urban Sunset

Sunsets over a city are always the best to me! I love the light shining off the glass buildings and different reflections in the windows. Usually when I shoot a sunset like this I get more of the city, but the tighter shot does show more detail and is pleasant to look at in its …

BMX Riders Be Crazy!

About a month ago I took my 2 sons up to Edmonton to check out a skateboard & BMX contest. I grew up skateboarding, so while I was having fun watching the skaters, my sons were much more interested in the BMX’ers and I don’t blame them. These guys are crazy! The high flying flips …

Crystal Ball

So my friend Allen has been shooting a bunch of photos with this crystal ball he got. We were out shooting photos the other night and he pulled out the ball. I had just finished shooting a photo I wanted to get at the location we were at and he was still going at it. …
