Nice People Park

The weather has been rather nice in Calgary these days. I stopped by this little park on my way home the other day and snapped this picture. I shot this photos right when I got there, then I when down the hill a little in front of this woman to shoot some photos of the buildings. After I took a few pictures, the woman from the picture had gone and I sat down in her spot and took couple pictures from there. While I sat there adjusting settings and taking pictures, I noticed another girl sitting on the bench beside me. I sat and took pictures for another 5 minuets or so. When I left I noticed the girl who was sitting beside me had got up and walked over to take some pictures of the skyline from the spot I was perviously at in front of the bench I was on. From what I gather, this very nice girl was waiting till I was done taking pictures to walk in front of me to take hers. This  lovely young woman had made my day and restored my faith that there are some nice and polite people in this city. Thank you! 😉

Old Country Bridge

I was out shooting a house in a small town called Cochrane yesterday. The town is about 20 minutes outside of the city and is a nice little community from what I saw. I had shot houses in this community before and I always noticed this old bridge from the top of a large hill as your driving in.  For no apparent reasons, I felt today was the day I would get a picture of this bridge. When I found the bridge, I of course drove over it just to drive over it haha, but the funny thing about this bridge is it really leads to no where. On the other side of the river is a privet road and what looks to be a farm. Pretty nice bridge for a couple of luck people I’d say :).

Nice & Frozen Calgary

I went out last night around 6:30pm to take this picture. Little did I know just how cold it was. Once I set up my tripod, I whipped out my phone to check the temperature because I was already freezing. It was a bone chilling – 8 F! (-22C). I was only able to get 8 shots off before my toes were so cold they started to hurt! I took this as my que to head home (thankfully I live like 3 or 4 minutes from this location). Funny thing about this little outing is this picture was the very first one I took haha.

On a little side note, I took this picture with my newly acquired Pentax K-5. I had the 50mm lens from an old film camera. I have always liked Pentax and thought I’d give one of their DSLR’s a try. Don’t take this the wrong way, I love Canon and most likely will always be a Canon shooter, but it’s fun to mix things up a little here and there ;).
