Mission Creek

Places like this are so calming. This is a popular park in Kelowna, but if you get right down to the river you’re really all alone. Sometimes being isolated can be nice, sometimes not. I guess it all depends on how busy life is at the moment. Anyhow, this spot on the creek is nice …

Moody Lake

Ok so this lake isn’t called Moody Lake. It’s just the Okanagan Lake here in Kelowna, but moment I shot this photo it there was a definite moody vibe in the air. It was a strange day, because only moments before this it was nice and sunny, but as the clouds moved over the sun …

A Bit of Fall

Took a walk in the park yesterday and enjoyed some beautiful fall weather. And I’m thankful I did because it is snowing out right now! You know what, I’ll go take a picture of my backyard for you right now and come back and finish this. . . Ok got the picture, it will be …

The Apple Stand

This gigantic apple is at the beach near my house. This is actually the back of the apple. They sell ice cream, soda and who knows what else out of the front in the summer time. It’s a pretty cool stand actually and I think it’s a nice unique touch to the beach. People grow …

Out with Juneau

My wife Michelle and I were at the park with Juneau yesterday. I had my camera so I figured I’d shoot a few photos of her since it’s been awhile. The last picture in this post is funny to me because I had her sitting on this cliff for a picture. I shot two quick …

My 1st Pentax 67 Photoshoot

In early September I had the exciting experience of my first photo shoot using my Pentax 6×7 medium format film camera. I had been waiting on this day for a very long time so my excitement was through the roof. My brother in-law Robert was helping me out by modelling for me. I decided to …

Pelican Case Alternative

I bought this Pelican style case for my Pentax 6×7. I never thought I’d ever want to use a case like this for a camera. But when I thought about traveling with my 6×7 the idea of it banging around in the back of a car with a bunch of other suitcases in just a …

Penticton Summer

Just a few shots from this past summer when I was down in Penticton. Penticton is a town is about 45 minutes south of Kelowna where I live. I honestly thought I’d have spent more time down there this year, but for whatever reason I only got down there a couple of times. This day …

Unassuming in Puerto Vallarta

This house on the corner looks so unassuming on the outside, but I bet it’s amazing on the inside. The house itself looks pretty big and has multiple terraces with what looks to be a nice little third (or forth floor, depending on what street your looking from) floor stand alone room or studio. Whatever …

What does it take to scratch a lens?

Ever wonder just how much abuse a camera lens can take before scratches will start to show up? I use UV filters, mainly for protection and I was wondering this exact question so I decided to put a lens to the test. I tried “cleaning” the lens with a few different things. I shook the …

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 …

Back to School Brothers

Kids went back to school today! They were both really excited, more excited than I have ever seen them actually. I’m so happy they were so excited to go back, because they didn’t get a full year last year. They started a little late in the year at a new school and then the year …
