Forgiving, Handheld Aurora

A successful capture and rendering of the Aurora Borealis on an evening’s walk a month ago – surprised to find that my Olympus camera is this forgiving with a handheld shot – ISO 8000, f/4 and 1/3 of a second. Words to Inspire /… Continue Reading “Forgiving, Handheld Aurora”

A Photograph Intended

Christmas, in the first year of my second degree at the University of Alberta, saw the fall term close. The first evening of break found me riding my mountain bike out to a friend’s home in Edmonton’s west end. And, on a snowy, Friday… Continue Reading “A Photograph Intended”

Pencilled Rendering

I like this look of pencilled shadow and light as one means of rendering photographs. The week has allowed me to replace failing office equipment, to clear things that have been on my desk far too long and to remove former prints from my… Continue Reading “Pencilled Rendering”


A quieter hour, long before winter’s sunrise in a landscape usually populated by students in daylight hours, in spring, summer and fall. Liking the interplay of shadow and light, perpendicularity and depth within these images. Listening to – Edie Brickell’s ‘What I am,’ Concrete… Continue Reading “Perpendicularity”

Meandering, Stumbles & Tumbles

Our weather has been warm for January. In a portion of the year when we are accustomed to -40C and colder, last night rain fell upon our world. A thick slippery mat of ice coated all – vehicles moved with success while our biped… Continue Reading “Meandering, Stumbles & Tumbles”

Stabilizing Forgiveness

I have been intrigued to find success in creating night time images from handheld shots using wide open aperture and ISO 6400; stabilization must have been accounted for and become the forgiveness factor in this camera. Good! Listening to – liking Martyn Joseph’s new… Continue Reading “Stabilizing Forgiveness”

Morning Marvels

Popcorn size chunks of hoar frost line the length of a light standard’s striations, more of January’s morning crystalline marvels. Quote to Consider – “If your photos aren’t good enough, then you’re not close enough.” – Robert Capa Listening to – Adele’s ‘Hello,’ ‘Send… Continue Reading “Morning Marvels”

Discrete, Moveable – Beyond the Gym

It is a colder time of year in January; often we’ll have two or three weeks where northern cold from the arctic pushes down over us and us into -40C temperatures. Many people who exercise like to be outdoors; but, colder temperatures anchor them… Continue Reading “Discrete, Moveable – Beyond the Gym”

Crystalline Marvel

A friend, keenly interested in photography, always relishes and longs for the kind of weather this week has held, a kind of weather that changes our landscape causing it to become a photographic marvel. Hoar frost, the grayish-white crystalline deposit of frozen water vapor… Continue Reading “Crystalline Marvel”

Sulfur Mountain – Sunset

August, up behind Banff, on Sulfur Mountain, a Gondola ride ferries me, skyward, high above to a prominent mountain peak, a culling point for a cross-section of travelers and wanderlust. The sun, glimpsed behind clouds … sets – a time for a photo, a… Continue Reading “Sulfur Mountain – Sunset”

'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
