I believe these were the first two photos I shot when I arrived in Beijing. They were taken in the neighbourhood surrounding the hotel I stayed in.
Buildings in Calgary: the National Music Centre, the Calgary Public Library, a parking garage, and old City Hall.
These photos were shot in Bayeux, a town in Normandy, France. I spent a few nights in Bayeux, using it as a home base to explore many of the surrounding towns and WWII battlefields. I even had the opportunity to wander freely inside the Bayeux Cathedral, which was consecrated in 1077 by William the Conqueror’s […]
These were all taken around Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris a few years ago before the devastating fire.
Sarah and I did a cycling tour around the Yangshuo countryside in 2019 when we went to China. These photos are from a market that we visited that day.
These are the last of my photos from the Bearspaw Classic Car Show and Shine. If you’re interested in seeing them, photos from the first set and second set have already been posted.
This installment of Film on Film features four black & white films: Valca Grano Fino Positiva 6, Street Candy ATM 400, Ilford HP5 Plus 400, and the original Fuji Neopan Acros 100. Valca Grano Fino Positiva 6 is a rare cinema film I picked up from Labeauratoire. Valca was a film manufacturer in Spain, but […]
These photos are from Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon) in Vietnam. While touring Vietnam, I had a day off to explore on my own and shoot some photographs. These photos feature the Independence Palace (aka Reunification Palace) and its front gate (where in 1975, a tank of the North Vietnamese Army bulldozed into it, […]
This is from a photo walk I took through Fish Creek Park the year after the 2013 flood. I went to see the damage from the flood once the park had re-opened and was deemed safe again for the public. I had a few cameras with me that day, but I only snapped this one […]
It’s amazing how much fun you can have sitting on the deck on a hot summer’s day with a fisheye lens (and a glass of wine).
Here are some more photos from the Royal Palace in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. What I most remember about that day is that it was incredibly bright and I didn’t have a wide enough lens to capture everything I wanted in the frame.
On the west side of the new Calgary Public Library building are two of three kinetic sculptures that move back and forth like a drinking birds. This art installation is called Trio and was designed and built by artist Christian Moeller.
These photos are from a photowalk I took recently around the East Village. This part of downtown has undergone a lot of redevelopment over the last few years and I thought it was time to take a camera and go exploring.
I shot these photos in Eau Claire (downtown Calgary) along the river. It’s pretty clear that my Kodak Six-20 Model C has some light leaks. I’m not sure where the leaks originated since I had the camera taped up and my examination of the bellows when I got the camera didn’t reveal any pin prick […]
As I was putting this post together, it occurred to me that I have never processed Fuji Velvia 100 normally. I have only ever cross-processed this film. As much as I like this look, fortunately, I have a few more rolls left and will have to develop the next one in E6 chemistry. These photos […]
These photos are from a canoe trip and hike I took up to Widgeon Falls with my friend Barry.
These are Casablanca Lilies and they are a varietal of the oriental lily. A few months ago I decided that I wanted to try my hand at photographing flowers. I bought a bouquet of lilies at the supermarket, grabbed a vase and some decorative black rocks, and arranged them all together. Then I sat back […]
The night market in Xi’an’s Muslim Quarter is every street photographer’s dream. There is so much to see and experience. The entire street is lit up so bright that you can easily shoot with 100 ISO film even though it’s night. I could have spent the entire night snapping pictures had I brought more film […]
Sarah & I wandered down this street one afternoon in Chengdu and we discovered a shop where you could have your name carved in Chinese characters onto a stamp. We thought it would make a great memento of our trip and we bought a matching pair of stamps. I took these photos while we waited.
