Flashback YYC

Here’s an old Calgary picture that never made it out the gate. I think the plan was to go back when that fence was down, but then I ended up moving haha. Maybe when I’m back in Calgary this summer I’ll actually go and re-do this shot. I guess it depends on what it looks …

A Touch Darker in Portland

Street photography in Portland is great! The city is dense enough to have busy streets and the streets are beautiful. This is the perfect combination for getting good street shots, at least that’s what I think. I was just playing around in Lightroom last night editing some old photos. If you read this blog you …

Draw Me In City

I was taking a look through some of my Honolulu photos and came across this one. I was surprised to see I hadn’t shared this one before. This is my favourite type of picture and I could stare at this one for a long time, so I cant imagine why I didn’t get this one …

One Last Calgary Skyline

I shot this photo right before I moved away from Calgary. I figured after all the years of shooting the city skyline I had better get one last shot. I spent a lot of time looking at this skyline from around this view. If I needed to think or I was feeling restless I would …

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 …

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 …

Sunset End

I just caught the end of this sunset a few days ago on my way home from work. While I was driving I could see the amazing light shining on the buildings downtown. Unfortunately the traffic was moving slower than I would have liked and I wasn’t in a good area for a  decent shot. …

Baseball in Edmonton

I guess they like baseball up in Edmonton. I don’t know this for sure, but I was just walking by one day I saw this game going on in what looks like a nice little diamond. The stands aren’t packed, but there are fans and clearly they are keeping some kind of team going, so …

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 …

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 …

Taking In The World

During my time in Honolulu I found myself zipping through this park (Ainahau Triangle) often. One day I was riding my skateboard through the park on my way to Starbucks for an ice coffee. The high palm trees and shadows caught my eye, so I stopped for this picture. Before my camera became a necessity …

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, …
