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

Permanent Gaze

I hit the streets on Saturday night and found my self at City Hall. I shot a few different photos before I wandered over to this horse statue. I though full body might be cool, but I decided to go for just the head and show more detail. Another plus for getting in closer is …

Coffee Drinking Statue

I was out shooting photos downtown the other day when I noticed this statue, who is clearly in a hurry had a Tim Hortons coffee in his hand! lol. I found this rather amusing and thought you might too :). Camera: Canon 6D & 70-200mm f4 IS @ 89mm ~ Settings: f/4 – 1/640 – ISO …

Fun in Port Townsend

While I was in Port Townsend, Washington this past summer I was out with my 2 boys and wanted to get a picture of us together. I set up my camera on tripod and used my Canon RC1 remote to shoot the photo. I can’t remember what we where laughing at, but it was a good …
