More Buildings & Lights

The Calgary skyline is forever changing. There is a new building going up that is beside the bright one in the middle that is going to be awesome. The new building kind of turns as it goes up. I’m sure that’s going to be a wonderful building to get ultra wide angle shots of. There is also another big project going on near the bottom of the photo where the bright light is. I’m not sure what’s happening, but they got what looks like the beginning of a band shell or something along those lines. Whatever it is they are doing down there I’m sure it’s going to be great! I can’t wait to see it when it’s done, I’ll probably have to bust out the ol fisheye for that one. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I shot this on a random little path I followed off the side of a road around Banff Alberta, Canada. These excursions can be a little difficult and cold, but the results are almost always wonderful.

Trail, British Columbia

I was visiting some family in Castlegar, BC over Easter and while there I took a little trip to the neighbouring town of Trail to take some pictures. This is probably one of the better shots. It’s a nice little town with a river running through it, but it seems to get ย bad rap because of that massive factory/plant that kind of hangs over the town haha. Makes for interesting pictures at least ;).

Dogs Like To Run Too!

I was driving home the other day a long this street that has a great view of the city. While I was driving I noticed this girl running with her dog. The dog caught my eye because he looked so happy to be out running. I kept driving and thought it might make a good picture if I could get them both in the frame, so I decided to pull over and see if I could get the shot. Just as I got my camera ready they came running by and I snapped this photo.

Love For The 1st Canon EF 50mm 1.8

Let me start off by saying I own and often use the Canon EF 50mm 1.2 L Series lens. However, I still love my 50mm 1.8 mark 1, it’s a wonderful lens and produces amazing images. The glass used in the mark 1 is exactly the same as the cheaper built “Plastic Fantastic” 50mm 1.8 mark ii. So if that’s all you can get your hands on, not to worry.

It took my quite a while to get my hands on a decently priced 50 mark 1 (can’t but them in stores anymore). When I did though, I was extremely happy, because the newer mark ii feels like a toy to me and I had broken one before. I wasn’t to happy using a lens I was afraid was going to break if I sneezed on it. The mark 1’s build quality is 10 times better and if you like to manual focus, this one actually has a proper focus ring. However, with saying that, both lens produce amazing images and that’s all that really matters.
