Back to School Brothers

Kids went back to school today! They were both really excited, more excited than I have ever seen them actually. I’m so happy they were so excited to go back, because they didn’t get a full year last year. They started a little late in the year at a new school and then the year …

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 …

Lots of Water

Well there doesn’t seem to be any shortage or whatever around here. I honestly don’t know what the story is with this water coming up out of the ground at the park by my house. I thought it was an odd scene and worth a picture. As for the other picture, well I just shot …

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 …

Post Time

Lately I’ve been posting at odd times. Mid morning has probably been a trend for me lately as I haven’t been to keen to do my blogging at night like I used to. I’m not even sure it matters, but for some reason I can’t help but think I having it ready to go the …

Waiting

I wanted to take a picture like this, but I didn’t have the location. I knew I wanted some lights in the background and I needed some kind of street light to hit me in the front. I drove and walked around Kelowna for about 2 hours before I found this spot. I tried a …

All The Lights

I had drove by this place a few times and I knew right away that I was going to go back one night and shoot a photo. I love all the lights on the sign and the strings of lights above the deck. These type of lights always look good in long exposures. The place …

How you doin?

We took the dog out for a walk by a river last night and I noticed this horse through these bushes in his or her little stable. There seamed to be a clear path to the fence so I though I’d walk over and say hi. I took a couple pictures as I do. The …

Boca De Tomatlan & Yelapa

A picture from Boca De Tomatlan, Mexico came up on my Instagram stories “memories” yesterday. Once that memory was in my head I had to go and look at some of the pictures I took there last year. I love looking back at these pictures because those trips down there are always so fun. My …

West Kelowna View

With a little effort you can get to these amazing views around here in Kelowna, British Columbia. This was a nice hike up a mountain in West Kelowna and there was plenty to see from up there. I shot a bunch of photos but the landscape is a little dull at the moment and I …

Newfound Beach

I knew I had to take my dog for a walk and I kind of wanted to get the kids out of the house for a little bit too. However I was not about to just take everyone walking around the neighbourhood as we usually do because noticed a lot more people walking down the …

Signs

I went for a little stroll around the neighbourhood yesterday. I walked by this travellers hotel that had all these cool little signs posted on some trees and a posts. I snapped this quick one and kept on my way as I didn’t want to be hanging around any longer than I needed too. I’m …

Bellingham

Just a few old school pictures from back in the Bellingham days. I used to spend a lot of time in his town because I lived 20 minutes away and I really like this place. I haven’t been back to Bellingham in years and now that I’m living in a reasonable distance away (a 4 hour …
