Where Did Summer Go?

Whenever winter rolls around in Calgary I always feel like I didn’t get out enough during the summer. I take a look through the photos I shot and think, what the hell was I doing all summer? I do have a decent amount of photos I can use if I don’t feel like going outside to freeze, but I now that’s it’s cold out I can’t help but think I was missing out in August. Ah well, there’s always next year! Here’s a sunset from this past summer.

Abandoned Cancun

Well now that it’s all cold out around Calgary I am going to have to start digging through my files for photos haha. I know I should be getting out there, but I’m just not fired up about freezing my butt off in the snow. Anyhow, I took this picture last year in Cancun, Mexico. Some abandoned mall across the street from some beautiful hotels! I’m not sure what happened, but it looked like it used to be a pretty good little spot. Ah well, out with old I suppose.

Bridgeland

This is a not so common view of part of my neighbourhood where I live in Calgary. I shot this photo with a 300mm lens, so the compression kind of makes everything seem rather close together. Anyhow, if you know the area it’s probably more interesting to you, but if you don’t I still think it’s a nice picture to look at (in a larger size). 🙂

The Grim Reaper

My son Joshua had the best halloween costume this year! I thought it would be shame not to share it. 👻

It’s Winter

Well winter has swung into Calgary chopping heads and frostbiting fingers! It feels like we went from 0 to 100 miles an hour of winter action in no time. You look at this photo and it looks like it could have been taken in January, but I shot this yesterday morning! Oh well, that’s life in Calgary. Winter is here and it’s here to stay!

Drizzling River

You can’t tell from this picture, but there was light drizzle of rain coming down when I shot this photo. As you can tell from the sky it was quite overcast that night, which wasn’t a bad thing because it reflected the light well. On these dark cold nights I’ll take any light I can get!

Autumn in Calgary

I shot this photo a few weeks ago and wasn’t going to share it because I thought it would make a better night shot. Then I figured there is no reason to not share both. I took this picture from the parking garage of a local college (SAIT). I was looking for portrait locations and while I was looking around I just snapped this photo for the heck of it. It aint bad, maybe a little heavy on the parking lot though.

The Little Tower

Apparently the Calgary Tower (Olympic Torch shaped building) used to be the tallest “building” in town. Hard to believe when you look at it from this angle, or from any angle really! haha. Things must have been a lot different around here back then.

Anyhow, I shot this from on Saturday night from a grave yard that has a good view of the city. It was extremely windy that night and I’m surprised I was even able to get a half decent picture in the conditions.

Jawny

I met up with an old friend of mine last night and of course I just had to shoot a few photos of the guy. Catching up with your friends is always fun and taking pictures of people is too. Definitely fun times as always with Jawny!

East Village Sunset

I took this picture in the summer and kind of forgot about it. I was riding around on my bike trying to find a good spot to get a shot of the sunset and I knew I was in a now or never type situation. So I burned down a narrow path to the riverside and shot this photo just in the nick of time! 🙂

Through The Trees

It’s a pretty good view through the trees right here! You can’t see the river because of the trees, but I’d rather stare at buildings anyhow. 😉

Selfie On a Ledge

I was out taking pictures on the weekend and I was setting up for a shot of the city. While I was deciding where to shoot from I noticed this little ledge off the balcony I was standing on. The ledge looked easy enough to get onto so I thought I might as well hop onto it and do a self portrait. At first I was just looking at the camera normal. I had my D800E set to shoot 3 photos and on the 3rd one I just decided to pull my hood up and look at the camera. This is not how I normally am in front of the camera, but it’s good do do something different from time to time. 🙂

Down The Alley

I shot this photo this past summer in Nelson, BC Canada. The twinkle lights on the deck make a wonderful atmosphere and Nelson has some great alley views. This alley is probably my favourite because I love brick and the rolling street down this alley looks cool to me. The lights over the deck are from a restaurant that is in the brick building to the left. I’m not sure if the food is any good, but I am certain if you got a good seat on that deck your going to enjoy the ambience.
