Minolta in Nelson Part 2

I uploaded the second part of my Minolta 800si / Nelson BC video yesterday. In the video I walked around a couple of my favourite parts of town and shot some photos on Kodak Gold 200 35mm film. I’m happy with how this video turned out, so I think it’s worth a watch. The picture …

Waiting by the Library

My son Joshua had a hockey game at one of the downtown arenas here in Kelowna this past weekend. No one is allowed to watch the games because of obvious reasons, so I while I was waiting I decide to go shoot a few photos. The arena he was playing at was on the other …

Stranger on the Bridge

I met Abel at the Peace Bridge in Calgary. We were both out shooting photos. Abel was shooting photos of the bridge and I was shooting photos of people at the bridge. I walked up to Abel and asked him if I could take his picture and he was totally down with it. I honestly …

She was walking

It was an average fall day in Calgary and she was walking down the street through the East Village of Calgary. I too was walking down the street, however I was on a mission to find people who would let me take their picture. Just moments before I had shot another photo of a guy …

Penticton Japanese Garden

I was in Penticton yesterday just walking around taking pictures. I found this beautiful little Japanese garden. I love the colours of the trees and leaves in here. I was so happy to find this place yesterday because I didn’t feel like I had found any good pictures before I found this place. All the …

A Couple Strangers

If you watched the video in my last you post you’ve already seen this couple and you saw for yourself how I ended up taking their picture. These two we so great and they both were very keen to let me take their picture. I really love looking at these pictures of them because I …

Pictures of Strangers (video)

When I was in Calgary in September I wondered around the city taking pictures of strangers. I wanted to shoot some photos of people with my Pentax 6×7 medium format film camera, but I didn’t have any models. I figured I might as well just go walk up to people on the street ask them …

Upside Down

I have no idea what’s going on with this tiny upside down sculpture or whatever it is. I do like it though, I think it’s pretty cool how how it seems to just be balancing there. This is right in middle of the East Village in Calgary. That is one think I like about Calgary, …

The Apple Stand

This gigantic apple is at the beach near my house. This is actually the back of the apple. They sell ice cream, soda and who knows what else out of the front in the summer time. It’s a pretty cool stand actually and I think it’s a nice unique touch to the beach. People grow …

Penticton Summer

Just a few shots from this past summer when I was down in Penticton. Penticton is a town is about 45 minutes south of Kelowna where I live. I honestly thought I’d have spent more time down there this year, but for whatever reason I only got down there a couple of times. This day …

This Block

This block is one of my favourite blocks in the city and it has been since before the library(the modern white building in the back of the scene) opened. To camera left there used to be this crazy old gas station that looked like it hadn’t changed in about 60 years haha, it was amazing. …

Unassuming in Puerto Vallarta

This house on the corner looks so unassuming on the outside, but I bet it’s amazing on the inside. The house itself looks pretty big and has multiple terraces with what looks to be a nice little third (or forth floor, depending on what street your looking from) floor stand alone room or studio. Whatever …
