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 …

Bike Path View

I went out for a little evening bike ride the other night. I made a quick stop and shot this photo of the nice view of the city I was enjoying while riding by. There are definitely better views from other parts of the path, but this is one bit that probably doesn’t get shot …

A Downtown View

I shot this one from Tom Campbell Park by my house in Calgary. I don’t live to far from this place and on my way home one night last summer I decided to stop by and shoot a photo with my 300mm. Earlier in the night I was out with a friend of mine shooting …

Rocky City Sunset

Yesterday evening, straight after dinner I raced out of my house to a predetermined location. When I got in my car the sun was starting to set and I worried I had waited to long to leave. By the time I got to the location the sky had not yet turned colourful. This was good, …

Bright Lights

Even though I shot this photo at about 11:30pm the city is bright. I love the bright lights of a city at night and no other place makes me as happy or comfortable. I’m a city guy and love every bit of it :). Question: Not sure if any of you noticed or not, but I …

Dirty Look Down 1st

Camera: Canon 6D & 17-40L @ 23mm ~ Settings: f/20 – 25 seconds – ISO 200 This is 1st Street, downtown in Calgary. I shot this from a pedestrian over pass. As you can tell from the picture, the window of the over pass was quite dirty! But what are you gonna do? You can’t …

Ice Skating in The City

Camera: Canon 6D & 17-40L @ 17mm ~ Settings: f/4 – 1/10th – ISO 2500 Last week I went down to the Olympic Plaza ice skating rink downtown here in Calgary. It was a little chilly out and my hands got rather cold while I was shooting these photos. I had gloves with me, but I …

Sunset City

Camera: Nikon D300s & 100mm f/2.8 AIS ~ Settings: f/16 – 1/250th – ISO 200 Last weekend I was at my local Starbucks enjoying a coffee and testing out a new photo editing app (Pixelmator, verdict is still out). Once my editing time was up / coffee was done, I started walking home. When I got to …

Nice Little Field in Edmonton

I shot this one on my last trip up to Edmonton this summer. The thing I like about this picture is it shows a little detail into the city. The baseball field for instance, it’s small, but it’s nice. The factory (or whatever it is) beside it looks like the field looks to have a …

Calgary Uptown Eastside

I shot this photo of Eastside Calgary last night. The look out where I took this picture is just a few blocks away from my house, so I figured rather than watch Seinfeld or Frasier for the millionth time, I’d go out and have some fun. Right after I had set up my camera and …
