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.
My wife has since redecorated and our bedroom looks nothing like it did in this first photo taken before I met her.
Calgary’s Chinese Cemetery dates back to 1908 and is the burial site for many of the city’s early Chinese pioneers.
These are from a bicycle tour that Sarah & I took around the Yangshuo countryside in China. They were taken with my Olympus Trip 35, and while the Trip 35 is small enough to fit in a coat pocket, it does not fit in the pockets of my shorts. I had to carry it in […]
These photos of Calgary’s skyline were shot from Union Cemetery and are from the same roll as the last post’s photos.
I shot these photos at Union Cemetery 7 or 8 years ago when I decided to get back into film photography. I was exploring parts of the city I had never visited before and the cemetery fascinated me. As a result, I have way too many photos of Union Cemetery including photos of gravestones shot […]
Inspired by Katie’s ‘At Home’ series on Katie Shoots Film, here is my own homage to photos taken at home.
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 […]
The Superheadz Ikimono Flash 110 is a cute little camera. It’s too bad that the film advance on mine often fails to stop at the next frame and cock the shutter. It’s not uncommon for me to lose one or two frames each time I advance the film.
I don’t think this photograph would be as interesting without the couple in the foreground enjoying the view.
I believe these were the first two photos I shot when I arrived in Beijing. They were taken in the neighbourhood surrounding the hotel I stayed in.
Buildings in Calgary: the National Music Centre, the Calgary Public Library, a parking garage, and old City Hall.
These photos were shot in Bayeux, a town in Normandy, France. I spent a few nights in Bayeux, using it as a home base to explore many of the surrounding towns and WWII battlefields. I even had the opportunity to wander freely inside the Bayeux Cathedral, which was consecrated in 1077 by William the Conqueror’s […]
These were all taken around Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris a few years ago before the devastating fire.
Sarah and I did a cycling tour around the Yangshuo countryside in 2019 when we went to China. These photos are from a market that we visited that day.
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.
This installment of Film on Film features four black & white films: Valca Grano Fino Positiva 6, Street Candy ATM 400, Ilford HP5 Plus 400, and the original Fuji Neopan Acros 100. Valca Grano Fino Positiva 6 is a rare cinema film I picked up from Labeauratoire. Valca was a film manufacturer in Spain, but […]
These photos are from Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon) in Vietnam. While touring Vietnam, I had a day off to explore on my own and shoot some photographs. These photos feature the Independence Palace (aka Reunification Palace) and its front gate (where in 1975, a tank of the North Vietnamese Army bulldozed into it, […]
This is from a photo walk I took through Fish Creek Park the year after the 2013 flood. I went to see the damage from the flood once the park had re-opened and was deemed safe again for the public. I had a few cameras with me that day, but I only snapped this one […]
