Once Upon a View

I shot this photo out of the kitchen window of an abandoned house. It’s crazy to think that one day a very long time ago some one stood here doing dishes and looked out to the side of their beautiful new house with pride and joy. And now this, a barley standing shell of what it once was. The roof just barely hanging on and dipping down into the rubble of forgotten time.

Cancun Reflection

exif-data-settings-rob-moses-sony-a7ii-24-70mm-zeissI shot this one in the hotel zone of Cancun Mexico. I had to walk across this ledge of a building to set up the shot. The window used in the reflection had some type of mirror coating on it and it worked wonders for the photo.

I have added a shot from my Instagram account showing where I shot this photo from. You can see the window I used for this photo on the further side of me. I was set up at the far corner.

Anytown USA

exif data rob moses canon 6d 50mm 1.4This is just some really country looking flower shop’s store front I was walking by in Port Townsend, WA one day. The idea of Anytown USA popped into my head when I saw the store, so I grabbed a quick shot. If I was going to be putting together a country cabin, this is a store I’d stop by to pick up some decorating items :).

Exploring Port Townsend

One night while I was in Port Townsend WA this summer, I went out to get some night shots. This was one of the first pictures I took because the window you look through in this picture is my hotel’s lobby. I was staying at the Palace Hotel and the street you’re looking down here is Tyler Street I believe. Anyhow, I thought the sign in the shot might make for a good picture, since it says Port Townsend and all :).

A Rare Brick Wall

Brick buildings are somewhat rare here in Calgary, Canada. This is an extra random picture and I the only reason I even took it is because I just like brick for some reason haha. I wasn’t ever going to post it any where, but I thought I’d just toss it up here for the hell of it on a Saturday afternoon :).

From The Tower

Last weekend I went for lunch at the Calgary Tower. It is a rather large tourist attraction with a revolving restaurant and look out deck (think the Space Needle). While I was up there I took this quick snap shot of the neighbouring buildings. If you look at the settings you can tell this shot was not really thought out in any way, as I had my settings set up for shooting photos inside the restaurant. If I was going to be taking my time and actually thought about shooting this photo I would have set my aperture at a much higher number (like f20) and would have turned my ISO back down. In any case, I still like the picture :).

When A Bird Hits Your Window

Like I said last week, I’m mot much of a bird photographer. However when a bird comes flying into your living room window full speed ahead, you get your bird photographer hat on in a hurry! As was the case of this little guy. I was just changing the lens on my camera to go shoot another photo in my basement, when I heard a loud thud on my window. My first thought was maybe some kids accidentally hit my window with a ball or something. When I looked out I saw this little bird laying on  my deck.

At first I just went out to see if he was ok, he kind of hopped up and moved over a little. The bird then sat there with his mouth open, opening and closing his eyes. The scene made me think of the Family Guy clip when Peter fell and hurt his knee haha. Since I  had my camera ready to go I went and grabbed it and shot a few photos. He stayed on my deck for over 5 minutes (I even had time to change lenses), then he started hopping away. I followed him to see if he was going to be able to fly away. The bird eventually hopped across the street and into some bushes where he just sat there, I decided I’d better just leave him alone at that point and let him rest and gather him self. I’ll go check on him later to see if he made it out of there. I hope so!

UPDATE: I went back to check if he made it out of the little spot he had in the bush and he was no where to be seen, so I am assuming he rested, gathered himself and got back to flying into other peoples windows 😉
