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

Plans by Myself

I shot this photo on Saturday night. I actually had plans to meet up with a friend of mine, but then at the last minute he informed me the plans were a no go. At first I thought to myself, well that sucks. Then I thought, hey no problem I’ll just make plans with myself! …

Bow River Night

I shot this one on Saturday night from underneath the Skipping Stone Bridge on St. Patricks Island (in Calgary). I was using my Fujifilm X-E1 with an old Canon FD mount Vivitar 28mm f/2 close focus lens. The camera and lens performed wonderfully together. This shot is straight out of the camera (other than a …

Spring Nights

Spring nights in Calgary can be beautiful. The city lights always do the right thing for me and this night was no different. The lights were bright and the sky was amazing, can’t ask for much more than that to take a nice city picture. Thanks for stopping by, Rob

That Sunset

I shot this photo on Saturday night. The sunset was amazing, but there was a lot of parking lot in the middle of the picture that I didn’t like. I thought I’d hop in there and maybe make the picture a little more interesting. Not to mention giving me a change to show off my …

Crazy Plants

I was out taking pictures one night downtown in Calgary when I saw these crazy looking plants. They had some LED lights shinning on them and they would change color every few seconds. I though it looked kind of cool so I grabbed a quick shot. I shot this photo with my Sony a7ii & …

Bright Moon Over City Hall

The moon was super bright the night I shot this photo. The natural light mixed in with the city lights of the surrounding area made for a cool atmosphere. At first I shot this photos with out the statue, but I thought it needed a little something more to keep it together. I’m happy with …

Happy Halloween

Now this is one heck of costume! I saw this person walking around downtown in Calgary this past weekend. I spotted this big happy looking red thing walking down the street about a block away. I quickly scurried over to the corner of the street I thought they were going to cross at, then a …
