I shot these on Lake Ontario and around Toronto Island.
Over the years, I’ve shot a lot of photos at Union Cemetery. Most of the old headstones were made from sandstone and they have not stood the test of time. Sandstone is a very soft sedimentary stone and it is a poor match for Calgary’s climate. These photos were taken with LomoChrome Purple film and […]
Sarah and I took a bicycle tour around the Yangshuo countryside when we were in China. It was a spectacular day and we had a lot of fun. I shot these with my Superheadz Ultra Wide & Slim loaded with B&W film. I would have prefered colour film, but that was all I had with […]
Twenty years ago, I went back to university to get a second degree. These were taken on a field trip as part of a geology course I was taking at the time. From Vancouver, we drove up the coast on the Sea to Sky Highway and stopped along the way to look at rocks and […]
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?
These are from a day trip to San Sebastián in Spain. When I travel I often take a number of cameras with me and plenty of film. On this trip, however, I only shot two rolls of film (compared to the nearly 40 rolls I shot in France). In my defense, I met my wife […]
I took a trip to Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park a few years ago with a few other photographers. As we wandered around the ranch, we came upon a dog tied to a fence post. Naturally, we stopped to take photos. Soon after, the the family that owned the dog took notice and two children joined […]
The Historic Village in Tauranga, NZ is a “collection of original and replica buildings from early Tauranga”. It’s a sort of museum for old buildings — similar in concept to Heritage Park here in Calgary except on a much smaller scale and without the re-enactors or key attractions such as a steam locomotive or vintage […]
In 2015, I went to France on a World War I & II history tour. We visited many of the Canadian, British and American battelfields in Normandy. These photos were taken at Pointe du Hoc, which is the highlest point of land between Utah Beach to the west and Omaha Beach to the east. On […]
The highlight of my trip to China last year had to be the night markets. There is just so much to see and photograph. The streets and restaurant patios are filled with interesting people, while every shop is open with something exciting going on out front. There’s plenty of food, music, and all sorts of […]
I had high hopes for this film. I shot these photos in and around Bow Valley Ranch (in Fish Creek Park) a few years back when I was searching for the perfect slide film to cross-process. Unfortunately, Rollei Digibase CR 200 Pro didn’t live up to my expectations. Looking at these photos now, I’m not […]
After our adventure in the air, Sarah and I explored New Zealand’s Queen Charlotte Sound (aka Totaranui) by sea. We booked a 4-hour sea tour with E-Ko Tours that took us up the Sound to Motuara Island and back again. It was a pleasant experience and a fun day on the water. These are some […]
When Sarah and I visited Marlborough, we took a few days to explore Queen Charlotte Sound by air, sea and land. Sarah knew I wanted to see and do just about everything on my first visit to New Zealand and so she surprised me by booking a scenic flight over Queen Charlotte Sound with Pelorus […]
This photo of a man pruning a topiary is from my first day in China last summer. The area around our hotel in Beijing was pretty nice and I often walked by this topiary on my way to and from the hotel.
