Moody Lake

Ok so this lake isn’t called Moody Lake. It’s just the Okanagan Lake here in Kelowna, but moment I shot this photo it there was a definite moody vibe in the air. It was a strange day, because only moments before this it was nice and sunny, but as the clouds moved over the sun …

Out with Juneau

My wife Michelle and I were at the park with Juneau yesterday. I had my camera so I figured I’d shoot a few photos of her since it’s been awhile. The last picture in this post is funny to me because I had her sitting on this cliff for a picture. I shot two quick …

What does it take to scratch a lens?

Ever wonder just how much abuse a camera lens can take before scratches will start to show up? I use UV filters, mainly for protection and I was wondering this exact question so I decided to put a lens to the test. I tried “cleaning” the lens with a few different things. I shook the …

Life in the East Village

There is a lot more life in the East Village of Calgary then there was a year ago. While I was living in Calgary there was always a decent amount of action in the neighbourhood, but it has got a lot more lively since I moved. A few new buildings finished up and some new …

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 …

Raymer Christmas Concert

Last night was the boys school’s Christmas concert. Usually these things are fun just to see how cute the kids are, but this year was a real joy to watch. To watch my two boys having so much fun in their new school with their new classmates made me so happy. You could see on …

Joshua Hockey Kelowna

Joshua has been having an interesting year of hockey so far. Since we moved to Kelowna the hockey set up here is different from Calgary. First off we missed the “rep team” try outs (we moved here 3 weeks too late), so Joshua was forced to play house league. This means a lot of puck …

Westy by the Water

It’s pretty easy to get a good picture driving around Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada. I pulled off here for a few shots and took so many pictures. I tried a bunch of different angles and most them looked pretty good to me. This shot in particular I felt showed the backdrop quite nicely …

Little Westfalia

I bought this little die cast VW Vanagon Westfalia to take pictures of during the winter months when I can’t take pictures of my real van haha. This is a 1:18 scale model of what looks to be a 1981 or 82 air-cooled Volkswagen Westfalia van. The detail on this model is pretty bang on. …

Summer in Spokane

I took this picture back in 2012. My son Joshua and I were going for a ride on the ferris wheel in Riverfront park and I shot this photo from around the topside of the wheel. Spokane has since renovated the park and made a lot of changes. I haven’t been back to Spokane in …

How Many Rings

I know a lot of people get engaged around the holidays, but I wonder just how many new rings are floating around out there? Anyhow, the thought crossed my mind so I figured why not share a ring picture. 😉 Thanks for stopping by, Rob
