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 the camera. Since I’m a city guy I thought having part of the city in the background and in the camera would look pretty cool. I like how it turned out 🙂

I shot this photo with a Sony a7R with a Nikon Nikkor 55mm f/2.8 micro.

Steam Plant

exif-data-rob-moses-sony-a7-24-70mmThis 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.

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.

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 and this one hit pretty close :). The 2nd shot is just a random picture from the same set up and same night.

Portland from a Bridge

rob moses exif data canon 6d 50mmThis 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 wasn’t a big deal. I know there are many better locations for a Portland skyline shot, but this view is nice to look at too :).

The Roxy

exif data rob moses sony a7r 16mm fisheye converter

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 day and night in the town and have a look around. Every time I have gone to Revelstoke I would look at this sign and think to myself, “I need to get a shot of that sign at night”. After everyone had gone to bed the night we spent in town, I grabbed my camera gear and headed out the door. The sign didn’t disappoint and the picture turned out exactly how I had imagined it would. 🙂

Note: I used the Sony Fisheye Converter on a 16mm 2.8 prime for this shot.

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 lens, but I have a thing for shooting photos with funny old lenses :).

Anyhow, just as I was enjoying the view of the city, this girl stopped near me and decided to do the same while drinking her coffee. That building behind her is called the “Saddledome” and it is where the local NHL Hockey team (The Calgary Flames) plays.

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 tore them all down to make way for the new ones. In any case, it is a real shame there are not more like this, because it had a lot of character to a city.

Calgary 1st

Camera: Nikon D300s & 70-210mm f/4-5.6D at 210mm ~ Settings: f/9 – 1/250th – ISO 800

I shot this photos the other day on my way home from work. It is a look down 1st Street SW downtown in Calgary. These types of pictures are always fun for me, because I love the city and watching people buzzing around. The picture has a nice mix of different types of architecture and a few little things here and there that hold my attention, so I enjoy looking at it. I hope you do too!

Mild Winter Moment

Camera: Nikon D300s & Sigma 15mm f/2.8 Fisheye ~ Settings: f/10 – 1/80th – ISO 500

I was downtown yesterday meeting a guy about thing. I had my camera with me so I grabbed a couple quick shots. The weather in Calgary this winter has been pretty good lately. As you can see from the pictures it’s not exactly what comes to mind when one thinks of winter in the city. It was 48 degrees (9C) in Calgary yesterday and it looks to be staying around that mark for the next little while. That is good photography weather and I plan on taking advantage of it :).

Dirty Look Down 1st

Camera: Canon 6D & 17-40L @ 23mm ~ Settings: f/20 – 25 seconds – ISO 200

This is 1st Street, downtown in Calgary. I shot this from a pedestrian over pass. As you can tell from the picture, the window of the over pass was quite dirty! But what are you gonna do? You can’t win em all ;).

Exploring Port Townsend

One night while I was in Port Townsend WA this summer, I went out to get some night shots. This was one of the first pictures I took because the window you look through in this picture is my hotel’s lobby. I was staying at the Palace Hotel and the street you’re looking down here is Tyler Street I believe. Anyhow, I thought the sign in the shot might make for a good picture, since it says Port Townsend and all :).
