Head of Security

This gigantic public art piece downtown in Calgary is a very popular photo stop for locals and tourist. It is with good reason too because the head is awesome! Security around this head is a little overboard though. For instance, don’t even think of climbing on it or even pretending to climb, security will be out there in a hurry busting your ass! haha. Also, they won’t let you use a tripod anywhere near it or on the property of the building, so you have to shoot your tripod photos from the sidewalk. I don’t know what that’s all bout, but whatever. Anyhow, the head is still cool and I like taking pictures of it.

Urban Honolulu Night

The city of Honolulu looks amazing at night! The view from the apartment we rented was especially amazing after the sun went down. I kind of wish I lived in a an apartment so I could get a wicked city view like this, but when you got two crazy little boys that love to run out the door every 5 minutes it’s not really ideal. Maybe one day though ;).

Freak Snow

This picture is from back in September! We had a freak snow storm here in Calgary this year and this guy did not seem to stoked to be walking around in it haha. I could tell he was a nice relaxed kind of guy though, because I had to get extremely close to him to get this shot and he didn’t mind. I was shooting an ultra wide angle lens at 16mm (actually 24mm on the crop sensor camera), which isn’t exactly your ideal street photography focal length. I was actually just there to get a skyline shot, then I saw him walking along and decided to snap a photo.

Under the Centre Street Bridge

Sometimes you gotta climb around to the kind of picture you want. Like this one for instance, the tide was low on the river so I decided to climb under the bridge as far over as I could go with out getting wet. I shot a lot of photos this night and this was the very last one I took. I knew when I took this picture it was the only one I needed :).

Fave Apartment Building

This is my favourite apartment building in Calgary. A wonderful example of pre-war one architecture that is very hard to come by in this modern city.

Fireworks

There is a party that lasts well over a week that goes on every summer in Calgary called the Calgary Stampede. Every night there is a fireworks display that goes and one night I decided to go check it out. Here are a couple of the shots I took that night :).

Random Trees in the Sky

I was out shooting a house yesterday (for real estate) and decided to get some shots of the park across the street. While I was in the park I randomly decided to point my camera straight up and take a shot. It’s not really my kind of thing, but it’s not bad :).

Calgary By The River

The river that runs through Calgary is rather low now and there was a massive area for me to walk out on to get this picture. It was just me and a couple Canadian Geese hanging out shooting photos :). I actually got a picture with those guys in it, but I’ll post that one another day ;).

Ridiculously Wide!

I rarely shoot this wide because it looks like all the buildings are falling into each other haha. However, if you want all the buildings in one shot so close, there isn’t much choice. I shot this one in Chinatown in Calgary, Alberta Canada.

A Drivers City

In Calgary you must have car! I think this picture kind of shows that :).

I had wanted to take this picture for well over a year now. I used to drive past here over one of those overpasses everyday and I would always want to get this picture, but it wasn’t easy. There is not path here and you can’t walk up from the street to this location, as there is no side walks anywhere near these busy streets and bridges. Right behind were I am there are houses. I went and scouted this location once in the fall and found out there was vacant house right where I need to get though to the wall. So now that all the snow is finally gone I decided it was time to get this picture.

When I arrived I had my regular tripod with me, because I thought I would be able to get a shot from the back yard of the vacant house, however there were trees in the frame and the wall was also blocking the street at the bottom of the picture. I knew I had to get the picture from the wall, so I went back to my car and grabbed my Joby GorillaPod and set my camera up on top of the wall and used live view to frame my pictures. The photo didn’t turn out exactly how I had envisioned, but it’s not bad.

Bright City Sky

A little before Christmas my friend and I went out to shoot some photos when we came across this little lookout park with this nice view of the city. It’s a little uncommon of a view of Calgary, so I kind of like it for that reason. I do prefer the view looking south of the city, but this is nice too. I mainly like this vantage point because you also get a good view of the neighbourhood bellow. Anyhow, kind of an odd picture, but it’s not bad ;).

Wicked Interior

I shot this place yesterday and thought it was pretty cool, so I figured I’d share the pictures here. This place is just a few blocks down the street from my house and is selling for a whooping $1.7 MILLION Dollars! It’s a wicked house, but I would hope you could get a little more for 1.7 million, not in Calgary though.
