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 girls walked up and where waiting for the light to change. I was making some adjustments and snapping a few pictures. The girl with the ice cream asked if I was snapping pictures of them, because they could pose. I laughed and said I was just interested in the sign. However, after l got home and looked at the test shots with the girls, I liked that one better than the one with the car lights. So as it turns out I guess I was taking their picture haha.

PS: That’s my buddy Allen in the bottom left of the photo haha. He was shooting his own photo. Actually I ended up shooting a photo in that exact same spot with that ball of his on the rail. I’ll post that picture next.

Ski Village Sign

I took this picture up at the Silver Start Mountain Resort in Vernon, BC. I though the snow on the sign with the ski village background looked just perfect. I didn’t get anything at the bistro so I can’t speak to their product, but the sign is good! 😉

Montana Signs

I love old signs like this! I think the “Sports Club” sign would be particularly awesome at night. Since I was only passing through this town (Shelby, MT) I didn’t have the opportunity to get a night shot of the sign. Even in the day light this sign still has a certain charm to it. Maybe next time I’m around I’ll plan to be passing through at night. 🙂

Neon

rob moses exif data canon 6d 28mm 1.8I love old neon signs on buildings. This particular one is quite wonderful. I love how this sign lights up the whole corner of the street. I shot this in Great Falls, Montana. The rest of the street was pretty dark and this little gem was a breath of fresh air in the dark night. 🙂

A Few Cents On The Sign

exif data sony a7r 24-70mm rob moses

This cool old spot is Browns Tavern in Spokane, Washington. It’s a wonderful little place my wife and I stumbled upon one morning while walking around the historic Browns Addition neighbourhood. While talking to the lovely waitress who was serving us, I mentioned how I liked the sign. To my surprise, she told us the sign was made of pennies! What a cool idea. The sign looks cool in the picture, but it really does look even better in person. If your ever in Spokane, this is a good stop to make.

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.

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 :).

Cool Vintage Sign

A new train station recently opened up in Calgary and they re-erected this old sign. When I first moved here I noticed the sign in front of a cool old gas station that looked like it belonged on the set of “Back to the Future”. I never got a picture of the building, because I never thought they would tear it down or move it. Anyhow, they did move the building (I believe), but I’m not sure where to. I am happy they fixed up the old sign and put it back up though, it’s brings a real charm to the Tuscany C-Train Station.

A Rare Brick Wall

Brick buildings are somewhat rare here in Calgary, Canada. This is an extra random picture and I the only reason I even took it is because I just like brick for some reason haha. I wasn’t ever going to post it any where, but I thought I’d just toss it up here for the hell of it on a Saturday afternoon :).

Dog Sign

Here’s a random sign regarding dogs by the City of Calgary haha. Rather random, but I like the bokeh :).

Selfie in Seattle

I think these pictures are close to 2 years old. I was down by the water in Seattle at Piers 62 & 63 taking some pictures. For whatever reason I decided this would be a good opportunity to snap a little Selfie action :). Both of these pictures were shot with a 5D & 24-70L wide open.

Heritage Park – Calgary

Today some family and I went on a little outing to Heritage Park here in Calgary. They got a bunch of old cars and gas pumps in one building and then in the actual park itself there is an old western style town with a train and a handful of old amusement park rides. I snapped a few pictures through out the day and thought I’d share them here. If you look closely you can catch a glimpse of me in a couple of the pictures 😉

Seattle at Night

These are couple shots I took in Seattle that I really like. I shot them last year from Kerry Park in Queen Anne (my favourite neighbourhood). If you ever make your way to Seattle, a stop at Kerry Park is a must. You can see the whole city, ocean and mountains from there. If you have small children a trip to Kerry Park can be fun for them too, as there is a playground just down the hill from the view point.
