As Sarah and I took a walk around Lake Rotorua, I spotted this couple enjoying the lake beneath the shade of a tree… and I spotted a swan swimming nearby. This unsuspecting couple never saw it coming until it was too late… but thankfully I did. And so I hung around and did my best […]
When I was in Hong Kong, I picked up a roll of Ferrania Solaris FG 100 and some other film at Showa. Showa is a film and camera store with a pretty decent selection of film. It was one of two film stores I visited in Hong Kong (the other isn’t worth mentioning). Autumn is […]
I’ve been rather disappointed with the results I get from Rollei film. Rollei Blackbird did little to change that. These were some of the best from the roll. On another note: Rollei Blackbird is the 100th film I’ve posted to Going Lomo.
These are from a photography workshop I took a few years ago shooting models downtown.
One Sunday after brunch, Sarah and I stumbled into the poorly-attended Fantasy Faire festival in Kensington. The now-defunct Fantasy Faire was the unsuccessful rebrand of Kensington’s Harry Potter Festival after Universal Studios sent cease & desist letters to unlicensed Harry Potter-themed festivals around the world. These photos are from a quidditch match put on by […]
Last year, Sarah & I drove out to Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump, a UNESCO World Heritage Site whose history goes back approximately 11,000 years. We hiked along the interpretive trail where I took these photos.
We took an overnight train from Shanghai to Xi’an to see the Terracotta Warriors. There was very little privacy on the overnight train. Compartments had six berths and an open doorway to the corridor. We shared our compartment with a university student and a lovely Chinese family. In fact, there were many families with young […]
Sarah and I took a bicycle tour through the countryside of Yangshuo. But to get to the bicycle rental shop, we had to first walk through a rather sketchy underground parking lot before emerging on the other side in an alley where I took these photos.
On my first trip to New Zealand, Sarah took me to Skyline Luge in Rotorua. It was my first time downhill karting and we had a lot of fun that day. Sarah grew up in Rotorua so imagine her surprise when she discovered that Skyline Luge was also here in Calgary at COP. You can’t […]
Sarah & I spent an afternoon wandering around Ralph Klein Park. Even though Kodak UltraMax film is considered to be ‘consumer’ film, I quite like its color palette. I was happy with the way these turned out.
Sarah & I toured the Summer Palace on our first full day in Beijing, China. It was a spectacular day but Sarah wasn’t too pleased with me by the end. The temperature reached an incredibly hot 40˚C, and not only did I make her climb to the top of Longevity Hill to take some photos, […]
