Parking Meter Beauty

I was walking down the street in Penticton, British Columbia when I noticed this beautifully painted parking meter. I have no idea if the city sanctioned this painting or not, but it look as if they are ok with it as this parking meter is right in front of city hall. Either way, I love …

Upside Down

I have no idea what’s going on with this tiny upside down sculpture or whatever it is. I do like it though, I think it’s pretty cool how how it seems to just be balancing there. This is right in middle of the East Village in Calgary. That is one think I like about Calgary, …

The Sails in Kelowna

This awesome public art piece in the middle of the photo is called “The Sails”. I’m not 100% if that’s the official name, but that’s what I’ve heard it been called. I think it’s a wonderful piece in a perfect spot downtown in Kelowna. I nearly didn’t share this photo because I though it would …

Bear

I love this bear sculpture or whatever you’d call this. It’s an amazing piece of public art and I love where the city placed it. This the second picture I have taken of this bear since I moved here and I am sure I will take many more of the years to come. I think …

Head of Security

This gigantic public art piece downtown in Calgary is a very popular photo stop for locals and tourist. It is with good reason too because the head is awesome! Security around this head is a little overboard though. For instance, don’t even think of climbing on it or even pretending to climb, security will be …

YYC Iron Horse

This cool horse is right in the middle of downtown here in Calgary. It is in this really cool city park that is attached to a train station. I don’t often find myself in this park, but every time I do I take a minute to admire the art. A couple years ago I took …

Scarves & Flowers

I was kicking around Esther Short Park in Vancouver, Washington one day when I noticed the statue of the old guy was wearing this beautiful knitted scarf. Although it did look a little odd with his iron suit, I thought it was wonderful. And to top it off, this nice little statue girl was giving …

Urban Sun

I was downtown yesterday shooting some photos for a client. While I was down there I thought I’d grab a picture for you all too ;). The gigantic head on the right is actually quite big and it is lit up a night. The sun and sun reflection on the blue building make a fun addition …

Bull City

I don’t have any idea what’s up with this bull statue, but I think it looks pretty cool in this setting. Another handheld shot with the Sony a7ii. For the lens, I was using the Sony fisheye converter on the 16mm f/2.8. Thanks for stopping by, Rob

Flashy Horse

I have wanted to shoot this photo for a while now. This little public park is at one of the train stations downtown. One day when I got off the train at this stop I was checking out these iron art pieces. The idea for this photo came to me soon after that visit. The …
