It’s safe to say that Vietnam has millions of motorbikes and scooters. There are so many that it is having a detrimental effect on Vietnam’s air quality. The air pollution was pretty bad when I visited a few years ago. And with that many motorbikes on the road, crossing the street is an adventure! (If […]
These are from a trip to Lundbreck Falls in southern Alberta. They are from the day I drove down the Cowboy Trail with my photography club. It was a fun day and I would recommend joining (or forming) a photography club if you can. Photography can be a lonely hobby sometimes, so it’s a lot […]
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 […]
These are from a day I spent at Spruce Meadows photographing show jumping. I was quite thrilled by the way these photos turned out, especially #1167 above. It took me a few rolls before I figured out exactly how to get the best out of my Canon EOS 3 that day. I wanted to capture […]
Sarah & I had lunch at Wither Hills Winery one summer in Marlborough, New Zealand. We had lunch in the courtyard where I had an amazing pinot noir. Afterwards, we went inside for a wine tasting and ended up buying a bottle of noble riesling.
The Bomber Command Museum of Canada in Nanton, AB is home to a Lancaster bomber (FM-159). On certain days during the year, they take the Lancaster out of the hangar and run the 4 Packard Merlin engines. I was there one summer and snapped these photos on Imation Scotch Color HP100 film. (I also have […]
The front end of this hot rod was shot a few years back at the Show ‘n Shine in High River. I was in town photographing hot air balloons when I stumbled onto the Show ‘n Shine. I’m glad I did. It was a perfect way to end an already amazing day of photography: hot […]
These are photos of a few of the statues on the grounds surrounding Government Gardens in Rotorua, New Zealand. I quite like the way the first photo turned out. I love the look of Kodak Tri-X 400. It is an absolutely beautiful B&W film.
These lemurs were shot using Kodak Farbwelt 400. I’ve shot Kodak Farbwelt before and those photos turned out better. I’ve also photographed these lemurs on Fuji Superia 100. Those photos also turned out well. This is normal with expired film. As I’ve discussed before, the quality of expired film depends largely on how well it […]
I shoot a lot of expired film. Occasionally, I come across old film that has somehow managed to defy aging. This is usually because it was properly stored over its lifetime. Ferrania Solaris FG 100 and Perutz Primera 100 are two films I own that still look good a decade after the expiry date. And […]
I shot these in Fish Creek Park using discontinued and expired Solaris FG 100 film by Ferrania. I adjusted the ISO to 50 to compensate for the age of the film and I was really excited how the photos turned out. I wish I had more of this film.
I came across this man holding a guitar while walking down the street in Emeishan City. He seemed completely out of place and I was hoping he would play something, but sadly, this ‘Guitar Hero’ never played for us.
Sarah and I visited Emeishan City at the base of Mount Emei (aka Emeishan) in August. Mount Emei is one of the Four Sacred Mountains of Buddhism in China. We actually spent a few nights at Baoguo Temple (aka Baoguosi) and spent a day hiking up Mount Emei-–which was like climbing the world’s longest flight […]
I shot these on Kodak BW400CN, a chromogenic B&W film, which isn’t a true B&W film as it is designed to be processed in C-41 chemistry. I’m not a fan of this film and wasn’t sad to see Kodak discontinue its production. I shot these while wandering around Pearce Estate Park.
These photos are of a horse named Kolor Kode that I shot during a show jumping competition at Spruce Meadows one year while attending a photography Meetup. I shot these using expired Fuji Super HG II 100 film that I picked up on eBay.
