A Winter Walk Around Town

I went out for a little stroll around town yesterday because I wanted to shoot some photos. It wasn’t a particularly nice day or anything, but the sun doesn’t have to be out to take pictures. This set of photos has a real cool winter vibe to them and that is exactly how the day …

Kelowna is Changing

There is a lot of building going on in Kelowna right now and the city is changing. As I walked down this block I couldn’t help but notice the contrast between this little old industrial building and the new condos going up behind it. I wonder how long this building will last? I guess time …

A Dark Night on the Beach

I was bored and awake late one night in Puerto Vallarta, so I decided to grab my camera and take a stroll along the beach. I didn’t have to walk too far till I saw this scene and thought it might make a good picture. My favourite part of the picture is the two people …

Box Speed vs Overexposure

I wanted to see how much of a difference there was when overexposing Kodak Gold 200 35mm film. So I made a video out of it. I was testing the difference between shooting at box speed (ISO 200) and ISO 100. The camera I was using in the video is a Canon EOS 3 & …

Looking at Buildings

I went for a little walk the other day to see if I could catch a sunset. Sadly the sunset didn’t really materialize. It was still nice to get out for a walk and shot a bunch a photos, but nothing I was too excited about. This was the last picture I took. I was …

I Went for the Sky

I was sitting at my house doing some work on my computer. I have my computer set up near a window so I can see what’s happening in the sky. This window is facing west, so when I see a sunset coming on I usually know. Now it’s not always a sure thing, sometimes it …

December Sunset

I caught a little sunset action yesterday evening here in Kelowna. When I left my house I didn’t even have an idea of where I was even going. I just started driving down my street. I was about to turn at an intersection when the hill cough my eye. The sun was just about to …

Pictures of Strangers (video)

When I was in Calgary in September I wondered around the city taking pictures of strangers. I wanted to shoot some photos of people with my Pentax 6×7 medium format film camera, but I didn’t have any models. I figured I might as well just go walk up to people on the street ask them …

This Block

This block is one of my favourite blocks in the city and it has been since before the library(the modern white building in the back of the scene) opened. To camera left there used to be this crazy old gas station that looked like it hadn’t changed in about 60 years haha, it was amazing. …

Life in the East Village

There is a lot more life in the East Village of Calgary then there was a year ago. While I was living in Calgary there was always a decent amount of action in the neighbourhood, but it has got a lot more lively since I moved. A few new buildings finished up and some new …

East Village Path Views

I used to live across the bridge from the East Village in Calgary, so I have always spent a lot of time in the area. I’ve only been gone a year, but some new buildings have sprung up here and there since I’ve been gone. I like big buildings and I think they lend to …
