Sarah & I wandered down this street one afternoon in Chengdu and we discovered a shop where you could have your name carved in Chinese characters onto a stamp. We thought it would make a great memento of our trip and we bought a matching pair of stamps. I took these photos while we waited.
These photos were shot on Kodak SO-554 200 film — a film I know almost nothing about. I came across this mysterious film one day while shopping online and quickly bought 3 rolls. All I can tell you is that the SO stands for ‘special order’ and the 554 is the order number. Kodak SO-554 […]
Inspired by Katie’s Half-Frame Diary, I decided that I needed a half-frame camera myself. I love the look of two half-frames scanned together. The two images form a diptych and the juxtaposition offers a unique opportunity for photographic storytelling. It’s something that I’m eager to experiment with. I already own a Diana Mini, and while […]
Every summer, I try to attend as many interesting events as I can and bring along a camera. In the past, I’ve attended and photographed hot air ballooning, show jumping, live music, the Calgary Comic Expo, and the engine run-up on a WWII Lancaster bomber, to name a few. But since the pandemic started, I […]
Here are 4 more rolls from my Film on Film series. Today’s selection features rolls of Kodak Ektachrome 100 EPN, Holga B&W 400, Rollei Superpan 200, and Fuji Pro 160S. Eight years ago I managed to pick up 10 rolls of Kodak Ektachrome 100 EPN in 35mm and 7 rolls in 120. I’ve been pretty […]
I shot these photos of flowers outside Église Saint-Julien in the commune of Le Mesnil-Patry in Normandy, France.
These photos are from in and around Banff. The first two photos are of Cascade Ponds, just across the highway from Banff. Sarah and I met up with a friend here and spent an afternoon catching up. I ended up with a terrible sunburn.
I photographed these cows just outside Authie in Normandy. That big cow wasn’t too happy that I was photographing the calfs.
I shot these while wandering around Burnsland Cemetery when I was first experimenting with cross-processed film. I like some of the statues in Burnsland, but overall I don’t think it’s as picturesque as Union Cemetery, which is right across the street.
The name of this sculpture is Sliver. It was created by Virginia King and is a symbol of time. Sarah and I were walking in Newmarket (a suburb of Auckland) when we came upon the sculpture and I knew I had to photograph it.
I took this self-portrait as part of my Self-Portrait Challenge a few years ago. The idea behind the challenge was to take a series of creative self-portraits that would push my creativity and skills as a photographer. It isn’t easy to be both photographer and subject when you are using a manual focus camera. Unfortunately, […]
During the Calgary 1988 Winter Olympics, the medal ceremonies were held downtown at Olympic Plaza. Today, Olympic Plaza is a public gathering space open for everyone to enjoy. In winter, the plaza is turned into a public skating rink, and in summer, it is sometimes flooded to become a wading pool.
These were all taken around Xi’an — one was taken on a bus, some outside the hotel, and one outside a house.
Here are another 5 rolls from my Film on Film series. Today’s selection features rolls of Perutz Primera 100, Adox Color Implosion 100, Konica Centuria 200, Kodak UltraMax 400, and Lomography Redscale XR 50-200.
These photos are all from Caen Castle, or the Château de Caen as it is known in French. The castle and surrounding grounds were originally built by William the Conqueror before he left to conquer England. Today, the castle grounds are home to many buildings including the Musée de Normandie and Le Mancel Restaurant du […]
It’s not uncommon to see deflated and flat Santas, reindeer, snowmen, etc. on people’s lawns during the day over the Christmas season. Then they all get plugged in and reinflated in the evening.
In case you haven’t heard, RETO recently announced that they are (re)releasing the Ultra Wide & Slim camera. After reading the recent coverage by Emulsive and Kosmo Foto, I decided that I need to share my review of this iconic little camera. This is one of my favourite cameras and I take it with me […]
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 […]
