Oh Mexico

My family and I usually head down to Mexico once a year. However since we just made this big move to Kelowna from Calgary I highly doubt we’ll get the chance to get down there this year. I mentioned it in passing to my wife yesterday while we were driving and its’ been bouncing around …

Nice Place

So I was walking around Waikiki one day just looking around and taking in the sights when I passed by this beautiful hotel. I stopped and admired it for a moment, took a picture and went on my way. I’m sure this hotel is just as nice on the inside, but without a doubt the …

Inside The Calgary Library

The interior of the new Calgary Library is wonderful! Since the library opened I have seen tons of pictures of the outside and inside and every little corner of the place. I really enjoyed a lot of the pictures I had seen and wanted to get a shot of my own. I didn’t want to …

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 …

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 …

Fujifilm X-E1 & Canon 50mm 1.2

I picked up this Fujifilm X-E1 on consignment the other day when I was down at my local camera shop. The body was there for $250, so I thought why not. At that price you can’t really go wrong. The screen has some scratches on it, but that kind of thing doesn’t bother me. I …

Beautiful Palace

I took to the streets one night in Cancun to shoot some long exposures. This was the very first picture I took that night and I could have easily just walked right back into my hotel and been happy haha. They got some really beautiful resorts around Cancun, and this one is one of my …

Our Cancun Trip

So as you may already know my family and I took a trip to Cancun Mexico recently. As you can imagine I took a lot of pictures. I will be sharing some of the Mexico pictures on here over the next little while, but I though I’d drop a bunch at once right now to …

Bright Moon Over City Hall

The moon was super bright the night I shot this photo. The natural light mixed in with the city lights of the surrounding area made for a cool atmosphere. At first I shot this photos with out the statue, but I thought it needed a little something more to keep it together. I’m happy with …

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 …

Chinatown Lion

I was out cruising around Calgary last night taking pictures. I shot this photo in Chinatown. I love these lion statues, it seems like you can find them in just about every decent size city you go to. Thanks for stopping by, Rob  

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
