What does it take to scratch a lens?

Ever wonder just how much abuse a camera lens can take before scratches will start to show up? I use UV filters, mainly for protection and I was wondering this exact question so I decided to put a lens to the test. I tried “cleaning” the lens with a few different things. I shook the …

Boca De Tomatlan & Yelapa

A picture from Boca De Tomatlan, Mexico came up on my Instagram stories “memories” yesterday. Once that memory was in my head I had to go and look at some of the pictures I took there last year. I love looking back at these pictures because those trips down there are always so fun. My …

West Kelowna View

With a little effort you can get to these amazing views around here in Kelowna, British Columbia. This was a nice hike up a mountain in West Kelowna and there was plenty to see from up there. I shot a bunch of photos but the landscape is a little dull at the moment and I …

Skateboarding Around

My family and I have been practicing our social distancing these days. We are taking the CoronaVirus very seriously around here, but we are still trying to have fun. After all, my boys are only going to be 9 & 11 this one year and just because the world is going to hell at the …

Sunset for One

I needed to get out for a little fresh air the other day, but with all this Coronavirus business that’s going on I didn’t want to find myself around any other people. Lucky for me this little gem of a spot is just a few blocks from my house and I knew this exact spot …

Catching Dog Food

So just like nearly everyone else in the world I am in self quarantine at home right now (not that my regular life was much different TBH LOL, sad I know). With being relatively confined to the house I am so happy to have this brick wall to use as a backdrop for my photos! …

Back To Fujifilm

I decided life would be better with a little Fujifilm back in my life. I picked up this Fujifilm X-T2 for a smoke’n deal from Vistek (a Canadian camera store) and I am so happy I did. If you have been a long time reader of this blog you know I have some experience with …

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 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 …

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 …

Looking Around Kelowna

I’ve been looking around Kelowna for new photo spots ever since I moved here. Since I am new to the city all the photo spots are new, but I’ve been trying to find the best ones. I should probably just be shooting everything though since I live here and I’ll eventually cover it all haha. …
