Sony a7ii & Canon 50mm 1.2

Happy Cycling

Pre-Focus Run

I like getting pictures of people running from this part of the city. The skyline background just does it for me somehow. On this day I posed a bit of challenge to myself. I wanted to get a shot of someone running, well, , , a woman running, because people like pictures of women running …

This Girl Again

One day when I was shooting photos on the Centre Street Bridge in Calgary, I noticed a girl running whom I had taken a picture of not once, but twice before up the hill at Crescent road! haha. By the time I realized who she was, I had missed my opportunity for a front shot, so …
