All The Lights

I had drove by this place a few times and I knew right away that I was going to go back one night and shoot a photo. I love all the lights on the sign and the strings of lights above the deck. These type of lights always look good in long exposures. The place …

The Great War Monument

I shot this one last night beside a fire hall downtown in Kelowna. I suppose it’s a war monument dedicated to some firefighters who went off to war. I don’t know anymore than that as I didn’t see any plaques around or anything with more info. Maybe I’ll meet some old guy there one day …

Just made the cut

I wasn’t planning on sharing this picture. I didn’t think it was good enough to be perfectly honest with you. However when I was looking at it trying to decide if I should even toss it on Twitter or not my wife Michelle walked by and told me she like it. I figure if she …

35 or Bust!

I’m back out and about shooting photos! Well, not that I haven’t been shooting photos, but I’ve mostly been sticking around home and my neighbourhood and getting out into nature. But things around Kelowna seem to be getting back to normal these days so I figured it’s probably safe for me go downtown and do …

The Sails in Kelowna

This awesome public art piece in the middle of the photo is called “The Sails”. I’m not 100% if that’s the official name, but that’s what I’ve heard it been called. I think it’s a wonderful piece in a perfect spot downtown in Kelowna. I nearly didn’t share this photo because I though it would …

Bellingham

Just a few old school pictures from back in the Bellingham days. I used to spend a lot of time in his town because I lived 20 minutes away and I really like this place. I haven’t been back to Bellingham in years and now that I’m living in a reasonable distance away (a 4 hour …

Bear

I love this bear sculpture or whatever you’d call this. It’s an amazing piece of public art and I love where the city placed it. This the second picture I have taken of this bear since I moved here and I am sure I will take many more of the years to come. I think …

Canadian Reflection

It was kind of rainy one morning this past weekend in Kelowna and then the sun came out and it was beautiful. When I saw that shinning down on the wet street I had an idea. Find a big puddle and shoot some reflection shots. I would have preferred to shoot these photos with something …

Flashback YYC

Here’s an old Calgary picture that never made it out the gate. I think the plan was to go back when that fence was down, but then I ended up moving haha. Maybe when I’m back in Calgary this summer I’ll actually go and re-do this shot. I guess it depends on what it looks …

The Dakhka Khwaan Dancers

These are the amazing Dakhká Khwáan Tlingit Dancers. How I ended up at this show is unbelievable. My wife and I were down in Vancouver for one night and one day to return some things to Ikea from our kitchen renovation and to pick up a bunch of stuff we needed to outfit our Air …

A Touch Darker in Portland

Street photography in Portland is great! The city is dense enough to have busy streets and the streets are beautiful. This is the perfect combination for getting good street shots, at least that’s what I think. I was just playing around in Lightroom last night editing some old photos. If you read this blog you …

A Little More Mexican

In the more touristy areas of Mexican vacation destination cities it can sometimes feel like your talking around in the US rather than Mexico. This I found especially true in Playa Del Carmen. Now don’t get me wrong, I love the United States, but when I’m in Mexico I like to feel like I’m in …

Light My Steps

I love this staircase. The way it’s lit up at night like this it is just beautiful to me. This staircase is actually in a really nice location right by the Bow river in Calgary. Anytime I was going by this spot at night I would make a point to walk up or down these …
