Waiting by the Library

My son Joshua had a hockey game at one of the downtown arenas here in Kelowna this past weekend. No one is allowed to watch the games because of obvious reasons, so I while I was waiting I decide to go shoot a few photos. The arena he was playing at was on the other …

She was walking

It was an average fall day in Calgary and she was walking down the street through the East Village of Calgary. I too was walking down the street, however I was on a mission to find people who would let me take their picture. Just moments before I had shot another photo of a guy …

Moody Lake

Ok so this lake isn’t called Moody Lake. It’s just the Okanagan Lake here in Kelowna, but moment I shot this photo it there was a definite moody vibe in the air. It was a strange day, because only moments before this it was nice and sunny, but as the clouds moved over the sun …

Penticton Summer

Just a few shots from this past summer when I was down in Penticton. Penticton is a town is about 45 minutes south of Kelowna where I live. I honestly thought I’d have spent more time down there this year, but for whatever reason I only got down there a couple of times. This day …

Unassuming in Puerto Vallarta

This house on the corner looks so unassuming on the outside, but I bet it’s amazing on the inside. The house itself looks pretty big and has multiple terraces with what looks to be a nice little third (or forth floor, depending on what street your looking from) floor stand alone room or studio. Whatever …

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 …

Back to School Brothers

Kids went back to school today! They were both really excited, more excited than I have ever seen them actually. I’m so happy they were so excited to go back, because they didn’t get a full year last year. They started a little late in the year at a new school and then the year …

Lots of Water

Well there doesn’t seem to be any shortage or whatever around here. I honestly don’t know what the story is with this water coming up out of the ground at the park by my house. I thought it was an odd scene and worth a picture. As for the other picture, well I just shot …

This Rock

I have walked by this rock many times because it is at a dog beach I take my dog too. I don’t think I gave it a whole lot of attention every other time I walked by it. However this time I was looking for a picture. I wanted the water and mountains in the …

Post Time

Lately I’ve been posting at odd times. Mid morning has probably been a trend for me lately as I haven’t been to keen to do my blogging at night like I used to. I’m not even sure it matters, but for some reason I can’t help but think I having it ready to go the …

All The Lights

I had drove by this place a few times and I knew right away that I was going to go back one night and shoot a photo. I love all the lights on the sign and the strings of lights above the deck. These type of lights always look good in long exposures. The place …

Big Hike Day

Last week we had some family in town so we decided to take a what I though was going to be a little hike. Turns out this was in fact a big hike! Of course it was so sunny and hot going up, but by the time we got to the top it was pretty …

The Great War Monument

I shot this one last night beside a fire hall downtown in Kelowna. I suppose it’s a war monument dedicated to some firefighters who went off to war. I don’t know anymore than that as I didn’t see any plaques around or anything with more info. Maybe I’ll meet some old guy there one day …
