Ice Cream Night

When I set up for this photo I had no intentions of having any people in the shot. I just wanted to get the sign and the building in the frame. I was all set up and waiting for a bunch of cars to go by so I could capture all the lights. These 3 …

A Night Down This Street

I shot this photos while walking around Puerto Vallarta one night last week. I didn’t have any plan or specific idea of where I was going, but I just started walking around and looked for a good photo opportunity. I wasn’t even going to bother getting a shot of that church down the street, because …

Flight of The AE-1

I’m sure this idea isn’t new and there are people all over the world tossing their cameras around, but I this particular version was my idea. Location was key for this photo, as the background (even though it’s blurry) would play a big part in the over all feel of the final product. Since its …

Once Upon a View

I shot this photo out of the kitchen window of an abandoned house. It’s crazy to think that one day a very long time ago some one stood here doing dishes and looked out to the side of their beautiful new house with pride and joy. And now this, a barley standing shell of what it …

Minolta City

I was about to toss this old camera in the trash when I I took a look at the mirror after I took the lens off. I thought it looked pretty cool with the little lines and then I though I might be able to get a good photo if I incorporated the mirror of …

Steam Plant

This amazing place is a wonderful restaurant in Spokane, Washington called Steam Plant. The name of the restaurant pretty much says it all. As you have probably guessed, the restaurant was originally a actual steam plant. I love when people take old factories and stuff and turn them into something new. Thanks for stopping by, Rob

Pictures on the Bridge

Just got a couple of people having their picture taken twice! I doubt they will ever see this one though ;). I shot this one in manual focus with my Canon FD 50mm f/1.2 at 1.2. I love that lens! The 2nd photo isn’t as cool, but I thought it was still worth sharing. Thanks …

Evening Stroll

Just barely caught these two walking by. I wanted to get the front of them, but I could get my settings were I needed them to be in time. I shot this with my awesome 1970’s Canon FD 50mm f/1.2 wide open. I took 2 shots, the first one was a little out of focus …

Portland from a Bridge

This is the view of Portland from the Steel Bridge. I was walking across the bridge on the other side and immediately knew I was on the wrong side. I don’t recommend doing this, but I had wait for a break in the traffic to run across the bridge! It wasn’t all that busy, so it …

The Roxy

I LOVE old signs and buildings like this! Reminds me of old timey hollywood. This little movie theatre is hidden in a small ski town in British Columba, Canada called Revelstoke. I often pass through Revelstoke on my way to visit family in Vernon, BC. This summer my family and I decided to spend a …

Stop and Enjoy the View

Camera: Nikon D300s & 70-210mm F4 at 70mm ~ Settings: f/16 – 1/125th – ISO 200 I was out the other day shooting photos with my Nikon D300s and an old lens that has kind of a so-so reputation. The lens is a circa 1986 – 87 Nikon AF 70-210mm F4. I personally like the …

Not Quite Yet

Camera: Nikon D300s & AF 50mm 1.8 ~ Settings: f/18 – 1/160th – ISO 200 Just when you think winter is finally over, the weather gives you another blast to remind you where you live, Calgary! Every year I am fooled more than once into thinking the winter has ended, this year is no exception …

Beauty of a Bank

Camera: Canon 6D & 17-40L at 27mm ~ Settings: f/18 – 1/400th – ISO 400 I really love old buildings like this. There are not many of these beauties left in Alberta. I’m not a proper Albertan, so I’m not sure what the story is with all the old buildings. I am assuming they just …
