Happy Halloween

My brother Robbie and I took the kids out for little tick or treating tonight. It was little cold for what we were wearing, but the kids had a blast as they always do! I always enjoy taking the kids out on Halloween and this year did not disappoint. Joshua (in the emoji mask) was …

Pandosy Sign

This beautiful old sign is the sign that greets you to my neighbourhood in Kelowna. I love this sign and I have a bad feeling the city will replace it with something newer and most likely worse. I dont have a good reason for thinking this, but it just seems like when something is old …

West Kelowna

Looks like they just keep on building up the mountain in West Kelowna. I shot this from the other side of the lake with an old Pentax Takumar 500mm f/4.5 lens on my Sony a7R. The compression at 500mm gives a nice unique look that I really like. I need to take that lens out …

Unplanned Picture

I had zero plans on jumping in on a picture last night when I ran out the door to see if I could get a shot by the lake. When I got to my photo location it was already pretty dark (darker than I wanted), but I shot a bunch of photos anyhow. I could …

Bright Lights

I love all the lights down here. I especially like the lights strung around the building and to be honest, I probably wouldn’t have shot this photo if those lights were not there. When I shot this photo it was pretty dark out as you can see form the sky, but the lights set a …

Water is Life

I grew up living by the water most of my life and only the times I lived some where with out a big body of water were the times I realized how much I loved it. After years of living in Calgary with out a nice lake or the ocean I am super happy to …

Kelowna Night

I’ve been really enjoying my time in Kelowna so far! The weather as been spot on and the city is turning out to be even better than expected. I stumbled on this view point the other night and have been back twice since. I really love a nice view like this and I’m sure I’ll …

Autumn Colors of Kelowna

The leaves are changing colors in Kelowna. I took a drive up Knox mountain yesterday to get a view of the city and see what kind pictures I could get. I met another nice photographer up there and got a couple good shots, so it was a good evening to be out exploring my new …

Downtown Bear

There is this beautiful bear art piece downtown in Kelowna. When I set up to shoot this photo the clouds had just covered the moon. I knew the moon was going to be a big part of this shot so I sat and waited for about 15 minutes for the clouds to pass by enough …

Kelowna Signs & Lights

I shot this one a couple nights ago and the wind was a little ruff. You can see the movement in the tree leaves on the left. I don’t usually like that much movement in the trees, but I don’t hate it in the picture. When I was setting up for this shot an intoxicated …

Puerto Vallarta Sunsets

I was hanging out down in Puerto Vallarta not long ago and when I saw then sun setting I ran out to shoot this photo. Sunsets in Puerto Vallarta are almost always awesome and the truth is I have been better ones than this, but I still like this picture because it reminds me that …

Buildings Are Life

We are getting more tall buildings around here in Calgary. There are also more regular size buildings too for people to live in, which should be good for the city. I like it when more people are living in the centre of a city rather than in the suburbs and all the new buildings should …

Before Dark

I was out shooting some photos that did not include a view of the city last night. However the location I was shooting at had a pretty good view of Calgary. Just as I was wrapping up what I was doing I took a look at the city and figured it’d be a shame not …
