Yellow

I just stubbled on this picture I took in the fall that never made it out the door. I actually like this picture, I just kind of forgot about it haha. I was just walking by and couldn’t help but notice the bright yellow tree peaking over the hill. I thought contrast of the bright …

Thinking about moving my Blog

As the title says I am thinking about moving my blog totally over to my wedding website (robmoses.com). The ads on WordPress are getting out of control and have slowly been driving me more and more crazy these past few years. Sure I can pay to have them removed, but I honestly just don’t want …

Style’n on em

Check out this cool old guy just style’n on em in the streets of Penticton. I wasn’t out for street photography the day I took this, but I was walking in this guys direction and noticed he had his own cool style going on. I was shooting with my old manual focus Nikkor-H 85mm f/1.8 …

Parking Meter Beauty

I was walking down the street in Penticton, British Columbia when I noticed this beautifully painted parking meter. I have no idea if the city sanctioned this painting or not, but it look as if they are ok with it as this parking meter is right in front of city hall. Either way, I love …

Whatcha Doing Duck?

I don’t have a clue what this duck is doing. Maybe he was just keeping his beak warm? Anyhow, I saw him sitting there on this rock and I walked over and got incredibly close to him to shoot this photo. I honestly could have reached out and grabbed him if I wanted, but I …

Penticton Japanese Garden

I was in Penticton yesterday just walking around taking pictures. I found this beautiful little Japanese garden. I love the colours of the trees and leaves in here. I was so happy to find this place yesterday because I didn’t feel like I had found any good pictures before I found this place. All the …

The Apple Stand

This gigantic apple is at the beach near my house. This is actually the back of the apple. They sell ice cream, soda and who knows what else out of the front in the summer time. It’s a pretty cool stand actually and I think it’s a nice unique touch to the beach. People grow …

Quiet by The Creek

A few days ago my son Cameron and I were on a bike ride and we dipped into this wooded area to do a little photo location scouting. We found this spot, but at first nothing came to me, I just knew I loved the location. After I gave it some more though later that …

Minolta 50mm 1.2 vs Pentax 55mm 1.8

I have been shooting with my Minolta 50mm f/1.2 for a long time now. I have always known the short comings of the lens and had accepted the trade offs (like lack of sharpness wide open) for the f/1.2 speed. I have also had my Pentax 55mm f/1.8 for a long time, but haven’t shot …

Test Shot

This was just a test shot I took the other night. I’m thinking I will use this location for a portrait shoot. I think it’d be cool to have someone leaning on that railing on the right side the frame. With a person there I’d change up the composition a little, but it would be …

Graffiti Under The Bridge

I was heading out to some random park one day when I noticed this graffiti under the bridge. I figured I’d better climb under there and get a better look. Looks like whoever painted this stuff was pretty good at what they do. When I see good graffiti I often wonder if the painter is …

Looking Around Kelowna

I’ve been looking around Kelowna for new photo spots ever since I moved here. Since I am new to the city all the photo spots are new, but I’ve been trying to find the best ones. I should probably just be shooting everything though since I live here and I’ll eventually cover it all haha. …

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. …
