She was walking

It was an average fall day in Calgary and she was walking down the street through the East Village of Calgary. I too was walking down the street, however I was on a mission to find people who would let me take their picture. Just moments before I had shot another photo of a guy …

Pictures of Strangers (video)

When I was in Calgary in September I wondered around the city taking pictures of strangers. I wanted to shoot some photos of people with my Pentax 6×7 medium format film camera, but I didn’t have any models. I figured I might as well just go walk up to people on the street ask them …

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 …

This Block

This block is one of my favourite blocks in the city and it has been since before the library(the modern white building in the back of the scene) opened. To camera left there used to be this crazy old gas station that looked like it hadn’t changed in about 60 years haha, it was amazing. …

Stefany Focus

My friend Stefany from Calgary was in town over the weekend so we met up for a coffee in Pandosy yesterday. This was perfect timing for her to show up because I just got this new adapter that allows me to use my Canon EF lens on my Fujifilm XT-2! I have to say I …

Fun Bridge

I love this little bridge! Even though it’s rather short, it is so fun to ride your bike over. The setting around the bridge also helps as the ambiance is near perfect. If your coming from downtown you have to ride through a tunnel first. Once your up on the bridge you are greeted with …

Boca De Tomatlan & Yelapa

A picture from Boca De Tomatlan, Mexico came up on my Instagram stories “memories” yesterday. Once that memory was in my head I had to go and look at some of the pictures I took there last year. I love looking back at these pictures because those trips down there are always so fun. My …

Bellingham

Just a few old school pictures from back in the Bellingham days. I used to spend a lot of time in his town because I lived 20 minutes away and I really like this place. I haven’t been back to Bellingham in years and now that I’m living in a reasonable distance away (a 4 hour …

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 …

The Dakhka Khwaan Dancers

These are the amazing Dakhká Khwáan Tlingit Dancers. How I ended up at this show is unbelievable. My wife and I were down in Vancouver for one night and one day to return some things to Ikea from our kitchen renovation and to pick up a bunch of stuff we needed to outfit our Air …

A Touch Darker in Portland

Street photography in Portland is great! The city is dense enough to have busy streets and the streets are beautiful. This is the perfect combination for getting good street shots, at least that’s what I think. I was just playing around in Lightroom last night editing some old photos. If you read this blog you …
