These are from a day I spent driving around West Vancouver. Some are from Ambleside Park and some from Lighthouse Park.
I was quite thrilled to discover a “duck crossing” sign when visiting Tauranga, New Zealand. Sarah and I took a walk one afternoon around this lake and true to form, I spotted some ducks crossing the road. While I understand why they would cross the road to get to the lake, I have no idea […]
One of the things I love about Calgary is that some days, when the weather is right, you can see the Rocky Mountains looming large in the west. You can see them on the horizon of the first two photos.
These photos are from Il Giardino Italiano, my favourite part of Hastings Park. The garden features many beautiful fountains and the ‘Opera Walk’ is a hidden gem. I hope to visit the park again the next time I’m back in Vancouver.
A few years back, I photographed a Lancaster bomber running its engines. Afterwards, I wandered into the hangar and, to my delight, discovered a model making competition. Rows of tables covered in all sorts of model planes, tanks, cars, and spaceships were set up in the hangar. While the adjudicators were busy judging the models, […]
A few years ago, I had the chance to feed the giraffes at the Calgary Zoo and snapped these photos. Who knew their tongues were so long and agile?
I shot these in Vancouver’s Il Giardino Italiano (the Italian Garden) at Hasting’s Park. It’s a beautiful garden to wander through with plenty of flowers and amazing fountains. The Opera Walk is especially beautiful.
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 […]
I belong to a number of different camera clubs on Meetup and one of the clubs held a photo walk at Spruce Meadows. These were taken in the summer of 2016.
Here are the photos from week 3 in my 52 Week Photography Challenge. Week 3’s challenge was to take artistic photos of something red. While these photos may lack artistry, they certainly are red. I shot these in Edworthy Park.
These are from the Opera Walk in the Italian Garden (Il Giardino Italiano) at Hastings Park in Vancouver. Hastings Park is one of my favourite parks because I grew up close by and have many great memories of visiting the park.
With the Calgary Comic Expo coming up next week, I thought I’d post some of the cosplay photos I took last year.
These were all shot with my Canon Canonet QL17 Giii. I love this little camera and had a great time capturing these images in Honfleur, France. I spent only an evening here during my trip to Normandy, but it was awesome. I met a lot of friendly people, drank some amazing Calvados brandy, and generally […]
Whenever I’m back home on the coast, I try to sneak in a hike or two while visiting family. These were taken during a hike through Lighthouse Park in West Vancouver. I like to hike a few of the lesser used trails (fewer tourists) and my favourite leads to Starboat Cove. I snapped these with […]
I took these photos of hay bales from a viewpoint overlooking St. Lambert-sur-Dives in Normandy, France. St. Lambert-sur-Dives is the location where Major David Vivian Currie of the South Alberta Regiment won the Victoria Cross for his efforts and bravery during the Battle of the Falaise Pocket in World War II. If you look closely […]
