Drywall Cat

We are currently doing some renovations to our house and our contractor started cutting into some walls and ceilings yesterday. Mittens was very curious about what was going on right from the start. After a while Mittens came walking upstairs looking like he’d been hard at work with the contractor LOL. I grabbed my camera …

Happy Halloween

My brother Robbie and I took the kids out for little tick or treating tonight. It was little cold for what we were wearing, but the kids had a blast as they always do! I always enjoy taking the kids out on Halloween and this year did not disappoint. Joshua (in the emoji mask) was …

West Kelowna

Looks like they just keep on building up the mountain in West Kelowna. I shot this from the other side of the lake with an old Pentax Takumar 500mm f/4.5 lens on my Sony a7R. The compression at 500mm gives a nice unique look that I really like. I need to take that lens out …

Unplanned Picture

I had zero plans on jumping in on a picture last night when I ran out the door to see if I could get a shot by the lake. When I got to my photo location it was already pretty dark (darker than I wanted), but I shot a bunch of photos anyhow. I could …

Shy Eagle

Yesterday I went for a little drive south of the city (Kelowna) to see if I could get any decent pictures. I was in my Westfalia van and shot a bunch of pictures of the van and some landscape stuff. I felt like I had got enough photos for the day and started heading home …

Downtown Bear

There is this beautiful bear art piece downtown in Kelowna. When I set up to shoot this photo the clouds had just covered the moon. I knew the moon was going to be a big part of this shot so I sat and waited for about 15 minutes for the clouds to pass by enough …

Christmas Van

Someone gave this awesome Volkswagen Bus Christmas ornament to my wife this year and I love it! I figured if I was going to share a picture of it now would be the time. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and get to enjoy your time with whomever you might be with this …

Calgary City Lights

I love the way cities look at night. The bright lights lighting up the streets and sky and so beautiful to me. I think it is the lights at night that really draw me into a city. I can just sit there and look at it for ages. Of course all the other things that …

Lime Bikes Parked for Winter

So if you live in any big city in North America I’m sure you go some kind of bike sharing/renting thing going on. Here in Calgary we got Lime Bikes. This a fun idea and I’m sure it comes in handy during the summer, but right now when there is snow and ice everywhere I …

Grizzly Bear

My family and I were driving through Glacier National Park this summer and we saw this Grizzly bear just wandering along the side of the mountain! The longest lens I had with me was a manual focus Canon FD 100mm f/2.8. When we saw the bear my camera had on a 24-70mm so I scrambled …

Aurora

So we got some family in town visiting from Edmonton and BC. My sister in-law brought her friend Aurora along. We were all hanging out talking yesterday and I thought I might as well get a picture of Aurora. We just stepped in front of my house and I shot the photos with natural light. …

4 Brands, 1 Photo

I was just doing some example shots to show how the Pentax-A 50mm 1.7 performs on my Fujifilm X-Pro1. I kind of like the picture, so I thought I might as well share it. The camera in the picture is my Sony a7ii with a Canon 16-35mm f2.8 ii attached with a Metabones adapter. It …

Golden City

Some pretty amazing sunsets go down around here. This sunset was one of them! The clouds kind of look like they are rolling over the city. I love catching a scene like this, with or without my camera. Thanks for stopping by, Rob
