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. Since it was all set up I thought I’d shoot a quick photo with it in the other direction. In the edit I decided to flip my photo upside down so the image in the ball would seem right side up to the viewer. It’s a fun photo and I can see why Allen likes using it in his pictures.

Ice Cream Night

When I set up for this photo I had no intentions of having any people in the shot. I just wanted to get the sign and the building in the frame. I was all set up and waiting for a bunch of cars to go by so I could capture all the lights. These 3 girls walked up and where waiting for the light to change. I was making some adjustments and snapping a few pictures. The girl with the ice cream asked if I was snapping pictures of them, because they could pose. I laughed and said I was just interested in the sign. However, after l got home and looked at the test shots with the girls, I liked that one better than the one with the car lights. So as it turns out I guess I was taking their picture haha.

PS: That’s my buddy Allen in the bottom left of the photo haha. He was shooting his own photo. Actually I ended up shooting a photo in that exact same spot with that ball of his on the rail. I’ll post that picture next.

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.

Mirror Man

So there I was waiting for an elevator one day when I spotted this mirror. I didn’t give it much thought to be honest, just a quick look and a snap. Sometimes that’s all you need to walk away with something you like. 🙂

Instagram vs WordPress

I keep falling off my blogging regimen these days and I put a lot of the blame on Instagram! I think I have wrote about this before, but it just rings so true it is hard to avoid. I wonder how many other people feel this way? For me, I get a lot more interaction on Instagram so it only makes sense to dedicate at more time there. However, the longer format of the blog gives more creative freedom, but at a cost, time. Time is my main enemy here, I find when I am going peddle to the metal on Instagram I don’t make time for WordPress and vice versa.

Maybe time management is more of the issue here. If there was ever a time I should be ripping both full blast now is the time. During the winter in Calgary I find it too cold to go out much, so I am indoors more than I usually am. This extra time at home should give me the time to do both. So maybe I will start posting more again, I hope I will. I guess we’ll find out tomorrow haha.
