Starry River

I’ve spent many, many late nights walking along the Bow River in downtown Calgary. This spot has a large permanent eddy since the flood in 2013, and you can sometimes catch people out there on their surfboards in the summer.

The Bank

The CN Tower

I told myself I’d never take a picture of this landmark – it’s just too well-known. That said, I just really wanted to catch the clouds in the sky this night, and the tower all by itself  anchors this shot quite well. Although I should have Done this HDR so that I could rescue some […]

One person even knitted them underpants to protect public decency. However, you feel about them if you grew up in Calgary you know exactly where these are, and that they […]

New in the Neighbourhood

  These lights are pretty new, and I couldn’t quite figure out how to frame them. They look super cool and I don’t doubt someone will create a really special image with them. I can’t wait to see it.

Lo Fi

So I was trying something a little different this night. I was running around shooting at really high ISO, something I normally hate to do. But I wanted to see how dark and gloomy I could make what is normally a very bright street – even in the evening. I think I succeeded here. I […]
