Three Ways to See Calgary One of the better-known facts about Calgary is that it is not a very dense city. Once you leave the downtown area, the suburbs open up fast and because of this geography, you don’t have to go very far to see quite a diversity of landscapes. So here are three […]
The City is remade when it is a Misty Calgary, a Foggy Calgary I have been super busy since arriving back in Calgary. I’ve been out shooting whenever I get the chance. October was pretty great for shooting and we had more than a few days with dramatic fog. Thanks to the weather […]
Late Night Walks. Late night walks take me to some pretty strange places. Sometimes, though, I end up in really familiar places that are transformed and made new. Take this part of Kingstreet for example. It’s just a regular old intersection. But the streetlights, reflecting off of the overhead wires and the dark sky. […]
Sometimes you get some cool shots where you least suspect them. I processed this photo with analog effects pro and other than some weird effects around the street light i think this is a really cool shot. I don’t have a lot to say about this shot other than I like it, and you should […]
Strange Toronto Landscapes So this was kind of an interesting place. At night it was a real strange mix of colors, the purple sky reflecting the city lights. These blue metal sheets clashing with the yellow and green in the background. Actually, it was pretty cool looking. I split toned this image before running […]
Basketballers Play Basketballs Walking past this game of basketball late at night I noticed these pillars created an interesting frame. So, I got my gear set up as fast as I could. Then I guessed my settings because I wanted this exact sort of exposure. I hit the shutter and my test shot was […]
Queen Streetcar in the Rain This isn’t a technically good shot but I like the frame with the Queen Streetcar racing through the rain. It’s dark and the weather was bad, it was raining something awful that night. Also, it was dark and handheld so my settings were a little crazy. f/3.5 ISO:1000 1/20″
MOAR HOT DOGS! Toronto sure loves its’ sweet street meats. I can’t believe how many hot dog carts there are in this city, how late they stay open and how close they are to each other. This street had 3 within 30 feet of each other, in fact, you can see one right behind the […]
Sleepy Streetcar I found a streetcar yard here. While the city sleeps this place is abuzz with activity. cleaning and repairing the cars for their long day ahead.
It took me forever to realize you could walk inside this thing. Once in there, my brain couldn’t agree with my eyes everything looked so weird. Of course, this is the perfect time to take a picture – if only Calgary could have more publicly visible artwork like this.
