Water Like Ice

Canon 6D & 70-200mm f4 IS @ 138mm ~ Settings: f/25 – 25 seconds – ISO 320 The river water in this picture kind of looks like ice. Well not real ice I guess, because when the river is frozen over it doesn’t look anything like this. Maybe I should get a picture of that …

Crosswords While Walking

I was walking across the Centre Street Bridge here in Calgary the other day and I saw this guy walking up the bridge doing a crossword puzzle while walking! I put my camera up to my face and kept walking in his direction waiting for him to put his face up to see where he …

From The Tower

Last weekend I went for lunch at the Calgary Tower. It is a rather large tourist attraction with a revolving restaurant and look out deck (think the Space Needle). While I was up there I took this quick snap shot of the neighbouring buildings. If you look at the settings you can tell this shot …
