River Rocks

Lens: Vivitar 28mm f2 @f2

I was down by the river the other night shooting some photos. I came across this stack of rocks set up just perfectly to shoot a photo. I was using my Vivitar manual focus lens and it was the perfect lens for this shot. The lens blurred the photo just enough to give good separation from the background, but you are still able to make out what is back there. I love those blurry bits!

Bow River Night

Shot at f/16

I shot this one on Saturday night from underneath the Skipping Stone Bridge on St. Patricks Island (in Calgary). I was using my Fujifilm X-E1 with an old Canon FD mount Vivitar 28mm f/2 close focus lens. The camera and lens performed wonderfully together. This shot is straight out of the camera (other than a slight touch of straightening). Getting pictures like this straight out of the camera is the exact reason I got interested in Fujifilm cameras and I must say they are living up to the hype!

The 2nd picture I had to color correct a touch because under the bridge there are these blue LED lights and it looked really crazy haha. I didn’t spend a ton of time doing it either as you can probably tell ;).

Double Slide

I was down at the park with some friends and my family on Friday evening when I took these. My sons were having quite the time on the slide and decided doubling up on the slide might be a fun time. Looks like they were right. 😉

Pieces to the Puzzle

This picture is kind of cool because of all the action going on. At first glance you might not even notice, but there really is a lot happening. First off and most importantly, the couple walking across the bridge. Then of course the people on the boat and the other people about to launch their boat. Another important piece to this photo is the train going by in the background. I waited quite a while to get that train going by and to have a good shot of some people on the bridge before shooting the photo. All these little things might not be much interest to most people, but to me they all come together to make this picture something I can appreciate.

Sunset by the River

Not a bad spot to spend a Friday evening! A sunset by the river is always a good time in my book :).

Oh and happy fathers day to all the dads out there! ;).

Sitting Around The East Village

I was down in the East Village of Calgary over the weekend. I was taking pictures of the river off the boardwalk when I decided to try out one of these chairs. I figured if I was gonna grab a nice little seat for my self I might as well shoot another photo while I’m at it. 🙂

Colourful Night

I took the streets of the East Village last night. I ended up down by the river on St. Patricks Island to grab this shot of the Skipping Stone Bridge with a very colourful city in the background. The lights on the water look pretty cool too.

Cold View

I went out to shoot a few photos last night here in Calgary and I had to bust out the ol winter jacket! It was crazy windy and pretty cold. As if the cold night wasn’t enough, I woke up to snow on my car and lawn haha. Thankfully it’s all melted now and the forecast is calling for warmer weather after today!

From the East Village

Camera: Canon 6D & 28mm f/1.8 ~ Settings: f/20 – 20 seconds – ISO 100

I shot this on Sunday night right before I shot the photo in my last post. This little part of the East Village in Calgary is cool. Once some of these buildings are done and some stores and coffee shops start opening it’s going to be awesome. It’s still nice to look at even now though :).

Fall Was Nice

I’d say we had a pretty decent fall here in Calgary this year. The two prior falls I experienced in Calgary were a lot shorter and winter blasted in from out of no where. This year it kind of eased its way into winter and I was able to adapt and mentally prepare for the Eskimo lifestyle I was about to endure. I took this picture a week or so ago, it has since snowed and this time it’s not melting away.

The Bow River City

Last night a friend of mine (his blog here) and I went to shoot this photo and we knew a head of time wading through part of the Bow River was going to be part of the plan. On Tuesday evening my son and I had gone to a spot right by here to shoot some photos that didn’t turn out exactly how I had hoped. While we were there I noticed a tiny island of rocks that would be a perfect location for this photo. So I told my friend Nathan about it and I we packed some sandals for walking through river and headed back to the spot. With pants rolled up and gear in hand we crossed the shallow part of the river to the tiny island and let the sun go down just enough for this shot. The river was cold and it was windy, but the picture turned out exactly how I had imagined, so it was worth the effort :).
