More City

This is another angle from an evening a couple of weeks ago. I was hopping for a wicked sunset, but just got a bit of dusk haha. This picture is still alright. 🙂

A Colorful Street

While I was roaming the streets of Puerto Vallarta one night I passed by this street. I thought all the colorful flags were a nice touch, so I walked to the end of the street and shot this photo. Puerto Vallarta is such a wonderful little city, I hope to go back again soon!

Nikon D7100 & Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 ~ ISO:100 – f/16 – 30sec.

Sunset Over There

I went out on Sunday night hopping to get a shot of the sunset over the Eastside of downtown Calgary. I stopped off at couple different spots before landing on this location. I made my way down the side of this little hill, set my camera up and waited. Unfortunately there were too many clouds over the mountains to the west and not enough over the buildings over the east side of the city. Not all was lost though, because I was able to get this shot and to be honest I am happy things worked out the way they did, because I would never have set out to take this angle and now that I see the finished product I rather like it. 🙂

A Night Down This Street

I shot this photos while walking around Puerto Vallarta one night last week. I didn’t have any plan or specific idea of where I was going, but I just started walking around and looked for a good photo opportunity. I wasn’t even going to bother getting a shot of that church down the street, because I’m certain it has been shot to death. However, while I was walking down this street I took a look back and I thought it looked nice in the background. I really like this picture because it is so far off from the streets I see back home. The scene is wonderful and it is exactly how I remember it looking to me in real life.

2010 Seattle

I was poking around some old pictures of mine the other day and I came across this one. I shot it back in 2010 from West Seattle. It’s not the entire skyline, but it’s a nice little bit of it. I miss living in the Pacific North West, because you can actually get out during the winter and not freezing to death haha.

Snowy Edmonton

I was up in Edmonton last weekend and it was super cold and snowy! I stopped off at my favourite photo spot and shot a few quick city shots before I left town.

C-Square in Calgary

I only learned the name of this spot from someone who posted a comment on my instagram account. You would be forgiven if you thought C stood for COLD! lol, however it is actually “Celebration Square”. I saw a band playing music here last summer, it’s a pretty cool little spot. Not exactly jumping with activity in the winter, but then again who wants to hang out when it’s -10C. Anyhow, cool lights and the surroundings are nice to look at if your into the city life.

PDX Corner

Just the corner of a random street in Portland. These pictures are from quite awhile ago. I was just passing by here one day and snapped the shots without much thought. I came across the pictures on my computer this morning and figured I’d share them. 🙂

Camera Man

After everyone in my house went to bed last night I decided to go out and shoot some photos. I had the idea for this picture a while back and I knew if I didn’t shoot it soon it would have to wait until the spring. The weather in Calgary has been pretty warm lately, but last night it dipped down to around 32F (0C). 32 doesn’t seem all THAT cold, but my hands were FREEZING!

Anyhow, about the picture. I shot this photo with my Nikon D800E & Sigma 85mm 1.4 shot wide open. I used one bare flash to camera left shot at 1/128th. I per-focused on the area I was going to stand using a little flashlight sitting on the spot. The flash light kind of worked, but focus wasn’t bang on (close enough though😉). I put my camera on a 10 second timer and jumped into position holding my trusty Nikon D3s in my frozen hand.

Warm Winter Sunset

You can’t really tell from this picture, but it has been a very mild winter so far in Calgary. I’m not sure what the temperature was when I shot this photo, but it was sweater weather for sure. I did kind of a weird edit on this shot, I was going for a grainy film look. I’m not sure if the edit worked out exactly how I was planning, but I kinda like the picture. Anyhow, I think the warm weather is going to be sticking around for a little while longer, so I’ll be getting out there as much as I can before it get’s cold again!

Still Skateboarding

A lot of things in life change, somethings don’t. I have been riding around on my skateboard since I was around 8 years old. At times I skated more than others, but it has always been a part of my life and I’m sure it always will be in one way or another.

I shot these photos last night with the help of a friend. I set up the shot with on flash to camera right. I had my friend hit the shutter button for me while I did the skateboarding. 🙂 Thanks Nathan!

A Seat Under The Moon

I was out taking pictures with a friend of mine on Saturday night and I took a minute to grab a seat and enjoy the view. The moon was bright and the city was perfect. I love being out in the city at night and this moment was one to remember.
