One of the things I love about half-frame cameras, like the Olympus Pen EED, is the ability to create diptychs and triptychs. It’s a great way to create panoramas or simply to juxtapose two images. I made this triptych of Auckland’s Wintergardens last year when Sarah and I were in New Zealand visiting family. It […]
These statues were part of a fountain in my parents’ garden before they sold their house.
Sarah and I wandered around Blenheim one Sunday afternoon. It was very quiet with almost no one around when I shot these photos.
These photos of passengers were taken aboard the Victoria Grace while I was on a Yangtze River cruise in China a few years ago.
Here is another photo from my Self-Portrait Challenge. The theme for this one was reflection. The photo turned out better than I had anticipated. That being said, I think that it could do with an improvement. Conceptually, if I had to take this photo again, I think I would have some friends pretend to be […]
This beachfront house in Bernières-sur-Mer, France is the home of Hervé & Nicole Hoffer. Known as ‘Canada House’, it was originally owned by Hervé’s grandfather and was the first house liberated on D-Day by the Allies. Over the years, Hervé has turned his home into a museum and shrine to the members of the Queen’s […]
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.
These photos are from a canoe trip and hike I took up to Widgeon Falls with my friend Barry.
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 […]
I photographed these cows just outside Authie in Normandy. That big cow wasn’t too happy that I was photographing the calfs.
From time to time, I will take self-portraits. Often it’s because I have no idea of what to photograph. I’m easily bored of photographing the same subjects and locations over and over again. There are only so many times that I can visit the same places and vary the point of view or use a […]
When Sarah and I toured wineries in Marlborough, New Zealand, we stayed in Blenheim, a small town on the South Island. It was very peaceful and we wandered around town taking pictures. If you’re ever there, I highly recommend the Watery Mouth Café (third photo). It was so good, we had breakfast there every day.
The 4th Street Lilac Festival always draws a huge crowd here in Calgary. Vendors and food trucks line the streets, there’s live music, and even a parade. It would be a lot of fun, except for the crowds. So many people (and their pets) attend the summmer festival, that sometimes it reaches the tipping point […]
I tried to capture the steep changes in elevation while climbing the Great Wall of China. It may have been a cloudy day, but the temperature was in excess of 40 °C. Climbing all those stairs was harder than it looks! Incidentally, can you spot the woman doing a handstand?
I shot this zebra at the Calgary Zoo. I was delighted with the way these photos turned out. I just love Ektar’s saturated color palette!
These views of Paris were shot from the top of the Arc de Triomphe during the summer of 2015.
