Once Upon a View

I shot this photo out of the kitchen window of an abandoned house. It’s crazy to think that one day a very long time ago some one stood here doing dishes and looked out to the side of their beautiful new house with pride and joy. And now this, a barley standing shell of what it …

Abandoned House Mannequin

Last weekend a friend of mine and I went out to High River, Alberta to check out this abandoned neighbourhood. The whole neighbourhood was built on in a flood zone and of course it had been flooded. The province(state) decided the residence could no longer live there so they bought everyone out. Anyhow, we walked around …

Special Delivery Spokane

I was walking around this neighbourhood (South Hill) with a friend of mine in Spokane. We had just took a stroll in a nearby park when this mail truck caught my eye. I thought the beautiful house the mailman was in front of made a nice little scene, so I snapped this photo. Thanks for …

Abandoned Lakefront

A friend of mine took me out to this abandoned farm to shoot some photos. The place was pretty spectacular and we got a lot of good pictures there. This building was especially interesting to me, because when they built it the owners must have been so happy to have this nice structure built right by …

House Goals

I am sure I have said this before, but Spokane, Washington has some really wonderful houses! I saw this one while walking around the Browns Addition neighbourhood one summer day with my wife. Such a beautiful neighbourhood with so many nice houses. If your ever in the area be sure and take a stroll around …

Abandoned

When I was down in Mexico recently I had the pleasure of poking around an abandoned section of a resort. From what I heard these places got hit by a hurricane and the people who owned them didn’t have insurance and decided not to brother fixing them up. The site had a bunch of these …

Gingerbread Mouse

I dropped in on the Marriott hotel on the weekend to grab a coffee from the Starbucks in there. As soon as I entered the hotel I saw this wonderful Gingerbread town. This little mouse who was just chill’n on a bridge especially caught my eye, so I took a picture of him and went …

A Few Cents On The Sign

This cool old spot is Browns Tavern in Spokane, Washington. It’s a wonderful little place my wife and I stumbled upon one morning while walking around the historic Browns Addition neighbourhood. While talking to the lovely waitress who was serving us, I mentioned how I liked the sign. To my surprise, she told us the sign …

Starry Sky in BC

I was in Revelstoke, British Columbia a couple of weeks ago and shot this photo of the night sky. Revelstoke is a small town with out a lot of light pollution, which makes for getting shots of the stars nice and easy. At first I was walking over to a location by the river, but …

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 …

Beautiful Port Townsend

Camera: Canon 6D & 70-200mm f/4 IS @ 200mm ~ Settings: f/18 – 1/200th – ISO 320 I shot this one from the ferry while pulling into Port Townsend, Washington. I am a big fan of old buildings and houses and Port Townsend has an abundance of both. The architecture alone is enough for me to …

Cute House in Bridgeland

I was at the park the other day with my 2 boys and I noticed this cute little house across the street. This house is not a typical Calgary style house and that is part of what draws me to it. In a lot of Calgary neighbourhoods all the houses tend to look the same and …

Instagram, Twitter, TV

Camera: iPhone 4s – Settings: No settings (edited the picture in the Snapseed App) Yesterday morning I posted this picture to Instagram & Twitter. Not long after I posted the picture on Twitter I was contacted by @craig_larkins, a local CBC News Weather Man about the picture. He basically said he liked the picture and …
