Nelson Street Scene

I have always liked street scenes like this. When I look at pictures like this I always wonder things like “Where are those people going? I wonder where they are now?” I like to see life in the streets of whatever city picture I’m taking, it makes the pictures interesting to me. Of course this …

Annie in the Alley

I always love looking down this alley because of the eclectic collection of painting in this one. This is actually down the same alley as the barber shop in the pervious post. This Annie painting always stands out to me though. If your walking by the Annie just kind of catches your eye. I’m assuming …

Blaylock’s Gate

I shot these photos at Blaylock’s mansion in Nelson, British Columbia. I’ve driven by this mansion loads of times and every time I drive by I try to get a good look. It’s such an amazing looking house on the outside and I often wonder what it’s like inside. I know whoever owns the house …

A Castlegar View

I shot this photo a couple weeks ago in Castlegar, British Columbia. I used my Minolta 800si & AF 50mm 1.7 with Kodak Gold 200 film. I find that this film really shines with nice light like this. I shot a bunch of other photos this same day with the same film, but the pictures …

Clock by the Lake

My wife and I went to Peachland BC yesterday. I got a new phone and of course I had to test out the camera. We walked along the beach with our dog and found this beautiful old clock. I know these old style of clocks are somewhat common in old parts of towns and cities …

Bear

I love this bear sculpture or whatever you’d call this. It’s an amazing piece of public art and I love where the city placed it. This the second picture I have taken of this bear since I moved here and I am sure I will take many more of the years to come. I think …

Canadian Reflection

It was kind of rainy one morning this past weekend in Kelowna and then the sun came out and it was beautiful. When I saw that shinning down on the wet street I had an idea. Find a big puddle and shoot some reflection shots. I would have preferred to shoot these photos with something …

Dark Night Juneau

My wife and I took Juneau for a little walk the other night along this boardwalk near our house. I spotted this little ledge under this light and thought it’d be a good spot for a picture. As you can see it was a really dark night! I think the picture works though because Juneau …

A Little More Mexican

In the more touristy areas of Mexican vacation destination cities it can sometimes feel like your talking around in the US rather than Mexico. This I found especially true in Playa Del Carmen. Now don’t get me wrong, I love the United States, but when I’m in Mexico I like to feel like I’m in …

This View

I really love the view of Kelowna from the westside. I have some ideas for photos on this side, but I kind of want to wait until the leaves come back out. I might do that, but I might not have the patients. I guess theres no reason I cant do both haha. Anyhow, for …

Lake is Life

No matter what the weather is doing I love this lake. I grew up by the water is almost all the places I lived (and there was a lot) growing up. Other than when I lived Phoenix AZ I spent my life living by either the ocean or a big lake. When I moved to …

Over That Hill

There’s a beautiful little city just over that hill and I am happy to call it home. I’d be lying if said I felt that way everyday, but on days when I’m out in the city or some where with a view of it I am reminded of why it’s a good place to live. …
