My Favourite Camera

This has been my favourite camera now for many years! I have and have had technically “better” cameras, but for whatever reason, I still use this one more than any other. It is the Sony a7R original. It’s a 36 megapixel camera with 14.1 stops of dynamic range and for me that is just perfect. …

Down The Street with Juneau

We always take Juneau for walks in the forest, mountains and nature in general. I thought it might be fun for her (and me) to experience something a little different. Last night I took Juneau for a little walk downtown and she seemed to like it just as much as she likes being in nature. …

Quiet Boardwalk

On a chilly winter evening this boardwalk in Kelowna is really quiet. I’d prefer to have a person in this picture, but since it is a long exposure they would just have to be standing there on their phone or something. I suppose I could have jumped in on the picture now that I think …

One Last Calgary Skyline

I shot this photo right before I moved away from Calgary. I figured after all the years of shooting the city skyline I had better get one last shot. I spent a lot of time looking at this skyline from around this view. If I needed to think or I was feeling restless I would …

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 …
