Buildings Are Life

We are getting more tall buildings around here in Calgary. There are also more regular size buildings too for people to live in, which should be good for the city. I like it when more people are living in the centre of a city rather than in the suburbs and all the new buildings should …

Christmas Van

Someone gave this awesome Volkswagen Bus Christmas ornament to my wife this year and I love it! I figured if I was going to share a picture of it now would be the time. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and get to enjoy your time with whomever you might be with this …

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 …

Calgary Sunrise

On Wednesday morning I was driving my children to school and enjoying this amazing sunrise. After I dropped the kids off I stopped at this city look out a few blocks from my house. I didn’t have my camera with me so I just shot this photo with my phone. I think the saying is …

Misty Montana Mountains

I shot this photo real quick as I was taking pictures of my Westfalia this summer in Glacier National Park. I figured since I was surrounded by all this natural beauty it would be a shame to not get a straight up landscape shot. It was actually raining when I took this picture and a …

Guard Lion

I knew this new lion statue was put up at a park near my house in Calgary, but I hadn’t got around to going to check it out. Last night I had a late night engagement to attend so I thought I might as will head out a little early and see if there were …

New Bridge in Edmonton

I was up in Edmonton, Alberta not to long ago and I took a stroll along one of my favourite streets (Saskatchewan Dr.) with some nice views of Edmonton. Along the way the new bridge jumped out at me when I looked at it straight on. Of course the bridge looks great from many angles, …

Urban Sunset

Sunsets over a city are always the best to me! I love the light shining off the glass buildings and different reflections in the windows. Usually when I shoot a sunset like this I get more of the city, but the tighter shot does show more detail and is pleasant to look at in its …

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 …

Crystal Ball

So my friend Allen has been shooting a bunch of photos with this crystal ball he got. We were out shooting photos the other night and he pulled out the ball. I had just finished shooting a photo I wanted to get at the location we were at and he was still going at it. …
