Frosty Day

Cold weather is great for pictures. This is on the way to Old Fort where I took the deer pictures. Hopefully I'll get some good city winter pictures this week in Edmonton!

My Favorite Accident

The slow shutter speed was an accident, but this turned out to be one of my favorite pics. Every time I look at I see new faces in it. From the Slackers show at The Rev many years ago.

Foggy Sunday Morning

One great thing about Fort St. John is that when it's foggy, it lasts a looong time. I had hours to run around and take fog pictures on the back roads.

Oh Deer

I can't believe how close this doe let me get to her. She just went on eating and mostly ignored me. Unfortunately most of my shots were not sharp, as I didn't think to increase the ISO. Duh. I guess I'm still used to shooting film. Near Old Fort.

Winter Leaves

I discovered that in cold weather, breathing on your lens makes a quick soft focus filter. I was really wishing for snowshoes or cross-country ski while hiking through a foot of fresh snow at Beaton Park to take pictures. It was kind of cool though; the only tracks in the snow were animal tracks, and it was a beautiful day.

Mirror Portrait #15

I couldn't decide if I liked this one better with blown out contrast or in sepia, so I posted both. Behind the Boardwalk Building in Edmonton.

Bay Station

...or rather Enterprise Square Station, as they're calling it now, in Edmonton. I still call the Shaw Centre (or have they changed the name again?) "the Convention Centre" and Rexall Place "Northlands Coliseum".

Forest of Light

I've been wanting to experiment more with camera movement for awhile now. It's interesting how different each image is, and the results are so unpredictable. This on is my favorite of the set.

Old Ford Truck

An "Amy" photo

Corey saw this and said "That's an Amy photo". I don't really intend to always shoot dead stuff, or garbage, or rusted, rotten things. It just ends up that way.

I shot this flower when it was fresh as well, but I ended up liking this one better. I like the subtlety of the tones and patterns of the veins in the petals.

I'm now officially a Mac person (instead of a wannabe with a Mac sticker on my PC). I'm amazed every time it just WORKS. I got Lightroom, and this is my first experimentation with it (this photo makes use of the clarity and vibrance adjustments). Although I'm missing the way IMatch lets you categorize your photos in a hierarchical structure pleasing to any neurotic organizer rather than a cloud of keywords, I am loving Lightroom's editing features. Looks like I won't even have to touch Photoshop for most of my editing.

Train Tracks in the Evening

So this is officially my first post. I'm still playing with blogger and figuring out how everything works. I took this near "Frozen John" toboggan hill in Fort St. John.

About This Blog

My photos are about being in the moment and experiencing the richness of our everyday surroundings. Mind and eye become one and garbage cans in the alley spring to life in colour and light.

I'll be posting a new photo every Sunday.
