The Calgary Zoo is currently playing host to some pandas. They are very popular and the day I shot these photos, it was very hard to get a good shot given the size of the crowd of people around the pandas. It’s really no different in China. When Sarah and I were in Chengdu this […]
While visiting the Calgary Zoo one day, I photographed this amusing little demonstration on how to train a tiger by giving it food when it touches its nose to the stick. At first, the girl had no clue what the trainer was asking of her, but she did eventually get it.
When Sarah & I were in Shanghai, we spent the day wandering the Yuyuan Garden and the surrounding Bazaar. I snapped most of these photos as we walked through the streets of the Old City on our way to the Bund.
Sarah & I spent a day wandering Park Güell in Barcelona. Antoni Gaudí’s architecture is simply amazing. Sadly, I didn’t capture much on film as I was mostly shooting with my DSLR that day.
I recently picked up the Diana Baby 110 from Lomography. Since I already own and love the Diana F+ and the Diana Mini, I had high hopes for this camera. The Diana Baby 110 is a delightful little camera, but sadly the resulting photos were a disappointment. Most of the roll turned out as complete […]
I like shooting rare and expired film. I like it when I discover an old film that not only still produces good results, but also has a unique look or color palette. These are from a roll of Valca Grano Fino Positiva cinematic film that I purchased from Labeauratoire. Since Valca has a recommended ISO […]
My wife gave me a Lab-Box for Christmas this year and I’ve started developing my own film. These were developed using Rodinal (or Blazinal as it is branded here in Canada).
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.
Heritage Park is one of those places where there is lots to see and photograph. Over the years, I have managed to shoot many rolls of film there. I believe this is the first roll of Velvia 100 that I ever cross-processed and, once I saw the results, I instantly fell in love with the […]
These are from a canoe trip on Widgeon Creek that I took with my friend Barry. I’ve done this trip before and will probably do it again one day. It’s always fun.
