I shot these photos on Fuji CDU II that I purchased from Northern Film Lab on eBay. I picked up 3 rolls in 120, however, the film was cut down from wider 70mm film stock and therefore has perforations along one side. Fuji CDU II is duplicating film and is meant to be shot at […]
The Canada goose is often considered a nuissance, probably because they can turn a beautiful grassy field into one covered with their excrement. On this day, they allowed me to photograph them relaxing in the morning sun.
This single photo is all that turned out on a 24-exposure roll of expired Kodak Max Versatility 400. It’s too bad because I was looking forward to seeing the photos I had taken while on a photo walk downtown last summer. I believe the other photos were lost, not because the film is expired — […]
This is one of the few good photos I got from a roll of LomoChrome Metropolis that I shot in my Diana Mini.
The Bow River often freezes over during winter. While it is not unusual to see geese on the ice, I wasn’t expecting to find an overturned shopping cart that looked like it had been thrown from the bridge.
Buildings in Calgary: the National Music Centre, the Calgary Public Library, a parking garage, and old City Hall.
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.
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 […]
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 […]
These photos were shot on Kodak SO-554 200 film — a film I know almost nothing about. I came across this mysterious film one day while shopping online and quickly bought 3 rolls. All I can tell you is that the SO stands for ‘special order’ and the 554 is the order number. Kodak SO-554 […]
Inspired by Katie’s Half-Frame Diary, I decided that I needed a half-frame camera myself. I love the look of two half-frames scanned together. The two images form a diptych and the juxtaposition offers a unique opportunity for photographic storytelling. It’s something that I’m eager to experiment with. I already own a Diana Mini, and while […]
Every summer, I try to attend as many interesting events as I can and bring along a camera. In the past, I’ve attended and photographed hot air ballooning, show jumping, live music, the Calgary Comic Expo, and the engine run-up on a WWII Lancaster bomber, to name a few. But since the pandemic started, I […]
It’s not uncommon to see deflated and flat Santas, reindeer, snowmen, etc. on people’s lawns during the day over the Christmas season. Then they all get plugged in and reinflated in the evening.
After a fairly long stretch of -20 °C temperatures last winter, Sarah and I headed to Elbow Falls in the hopes that we might see a frozen waterfall. It was a gorgeous day at the Falls and a brisk wind made it quite chilly, but after a short hike, we discovered that Elbow Falls had […]
