Edmonton – A Brief Photowalk in a Place I Want to Photograph

31 December 2011 – My daughter and I took my son back to Edmonton to return him to his University of Alberta dorm at Lister Hall on December 30, 2011. The trip allowed for vehicle maintenance at West Edmonton Hyundai, two festive meals with… Continue Reading “Edmonton – A Brief Photowalk in a Place I Want to Photograph”

28 December 2010 – Look Back Photos (Edmonton’s Low Level Bridge and Skyline)

One year ago today my intention for photography in coming to Edmonton over Christmas was to capture sense of place. In any visit I had previously made to Edmonton through the years, I spent time on Whyte Avenue looking through Art shops for images… Continue Reading “28 December 2010 – Look Back Photos (Edmonton’s Low Level Bridge and Skyline)”

Christmas Eve – A Kitchen in Readiness for Celebrating Christmas

24 December 2011 – On the afternoon preceding Christmas eve, in scrubbing our kitchen floor, my wife and I moved several wine bottles from the floor to our kitchen counter. Later, a ham cooked in an old, well-used roasting pot (in my wife’s family… Continue Reading “Christmas Eve – A Kitchen in Readiness for Celebrating Christmas”

On My Mind – Intended Practice for Photography

23 December 2011 With photography, because assets are invested in capturing images, it is likely a good thing to create a system of ‘intended practice’ so that time and resources are not wasted. While image capture can occur anywhere within any environment, determining what… Continue Reading “On My Mind – Intended Practice for Photography”

Daylight Winter Images

20 December 2011 – daylight, winter images around High Level, Alberta; we’re nearly at 60 degrees North.  So, sunrise happens quite late (9:00 a.m.) and sunset happens quite early (3:30 p.m.).  Daylight is diminished and there’s more dusk at this time of year.  The… Continue Reading “Daylight Winter Images”

Christmas Lights – Grande Prairie, Alberta

It has been a whirlwind  weekend traveling to Grande Prairie and back, all in pursuit of Christmas. Of the landscape travelled through, weather’s interaction at the Dunvegan Bridge over the Mighty Peace was shifting mist and cloud against a backdrop of conifers laced with… Continue Reading “Christmas Lights – Grande Prairie, Alberta”

Against a Reflective Surface – Christmas Lights

Leaving school, against the blackness of night, I encountered beautiful hoarfrost on an Aspen Willow tree – a reverse silhouette (white against black). I started my pickup truck and used the engine’s warm-up time to explore the silhouetted Willow. Again, the camera is atop… Continue Reading “Against a Reflective Surface – Christmas Lights”

Christmas Lights – Balancing Ambient Light

From school I drove home on streets that are slick, polished ice. They are not quite treacherous, only difficult to begin moving on in a half-ton truck without weight in the box. So … Christmas lights – I arrived early and had good post-dusk… Continue Reading “Christmas Lights – Balancing Ambient Light”

Bokeh (Blurred lights) & Shallow Depth of Field

The shots taken last night explore bokeh; I’ve used a shallow depth of field for the subject and worked to blur the background light. Bokeh refers to the aesthetic quality of the blur, the out-of-focus areas of an image, or, the way the lens… Continue Reading “Bokeh (Blurred lights) & Shallow Depth of Field”

Christmas Lights – Around Town (attempt #1)

Christmas lights were the subject of last night’s foray into picture taking around town. A friend’s home had good oblique angles and provided dark architectural landscape that her Christmas lights outlined and accentuated.  And, in most instances Christmas lights highlighted architectural shape against night’s… Continue Reading “Christmas Lights – Around Town (attempt #1)”

'Why be reliant upon secular media sources, literary works penned by atheists, and embittered hearsay to inform your views on religiosity, or worse still to bring about the lack thereof, isn't that as sensible as asking directions to KFC from Ronald McDonald?' ―T. C. M
