On The Railing

I was out for a walk around the neighbourhood with my son Joshua yesterday evening. I wanted to shoot a photo with my Minolta 100mm lens and I figured I’d find something to shoot a long the way. When we got to the spot in the picture, my son suggested I just take a picture of …

Frosty Climb City

I had to climb a pretty big fence for this shot. I had driven by this location a long time ago and thought I might be able to get a good shot if I was to climb up the fence. I just happen to be driving near that location again today and I thought with …

Timeless Fun

I’m sure most of us have done this before as a child and some of us as adults. Not exactly sure why dragging a stick a long a fence is so fun for a child, but it definitely falls into the timeless category in my book. This picture is of my son Cameron when we …

A Photo of Taking a Picture

Camera: Canon 6D & 17-40L at 22mm ~ Settings: f/4 – 0.5 seconds – ISO 4000 Last night I went out to shoot some photos downtown. After about 4 different locations I ended up here. At first I was just getting some skyline shots with the fence in the foreground, and then the idea to …

Greener Times

Camera: Canon 6D & 24-105L @ 105mm ~ Settings: f/18 – 1/250th – ISO 640 A little through back to greener times in my neighbourhood. I can’t wait for it to look like this again. I’m getting tired of washing my car every 3 days and ruining perfectly good shoes to slush and snow. Here’s to …

Fave Apartment Building

Camera: Nikon D300s & Sigma 10-20mm @10mm – Settings: f/8 – 30 seconds – ISO 200 Camera: Nikon D300s & Sigma 10-20mm @16mm – Settings: f/16 – 30 seconds …

Walking with Batman

We decided to take a walk down to the corner store for some ice cream yesterday and I snapped this picture of my son. Right after I took this picture he opened this gate and started walking to the door of the house! haha. I explained to him people probably wouldn’t like that and we …

Run For It!

As you may know from my last post I was out on a little country drive on Friday. While I was driving I noticed a group of Elk & Deers on the side of the road up a hill, however they were to far to get a good picture, since the longest focal length lens …

Winter Trees

I’m not a big landscape guy, but when I was driving through the country yesterday I couldn’t help but notice this row of trees. I thought it looked kind of cool so I pulled over and took a few shots. At first I thought it would have been better if the sky was completely clear …
