Clock by the Lake

My wife and I went to Peachland BC yesterday. I got a new phone and of course I had to test out the camera. We walked along the beach with our dog and found this beautiful old clock. I know these old style of clocks are somewhat common in old parts of towns and cities …

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 …

A Calm Afternoon in Kelowna

Yesterday I met my wife after work downtown for a little stroll along the lakeside. The lake was especially calm and so was the afternoon sun. It was sweater weather and even though there were lots of people out and about the entire vibe was pretty mellow. When the water is still like this it …

This View

I really love the view of Kelowna from the westside. I have some ideas for photos on this side, but I kind of want to wait until the leaves come back out. I might do that, but I might not have the patients. I guess theres no reason I cant do both haha. Anyhow, for …

Cliff Light

I went out for a little hike yesterday on a new path I had never been on before. The whole trip was really great, but there was a nice stretch where I was walking along this cliff and the views were awesome. When I spotted this part of the cliff with this great bit of …

Draw Me In City

I was taking a look through some of my Honolulu photos and came across this one. I was surprised to see I hadn’t shared this one before. This is my favourite type of picture and I could stare at this one for a long time, so I cant imagine why I didn’t get this one …

Lake is Life

No matter what the weather is doing I love this lake. I grew up by the water is almost all the places I lived (and there was a lot) growing up. Other than when I lived Phoenix AZ I spent my life living by either the ocean or a big lake. When I moved to …

Brighter Days

I feel like I needed to add a little brightness into the blog. So many of my pictures have been on the darker side lately that I figured I’d go into my files and find something bright. I struggle with keeping dark photos dark and I always want to lean on the brighter side. I …
