I was driving through the inner city neighbourhood of Bridgeland the other day and noticed this nice little vantage point to shoot this photo. I didn’t have a DSLR on me, so I shot this with a mirrorless (Samsung NX100) camera I had. Just for fun, I decided to edit this picture on my iPad with the Snapseed app. The neighbourhood directly at the bottom of this hill is Bridgeland and to the right of the picture up another hill is a neighbourhood called Renfrew that I am hopping to buy a house in later this year 🙂
Tomorrow I will be meeting up with an old friend of mine that I haven’t seen in like 10 years that lives in Calgary now. I will be interviewing her for this blog, so check back tomorrow night for that 🙂
* Update: Due to the flooding in Calgary I was unable to meet up with my friend. We are rescheduling and I will have her on here at a later date.
Thanks for stopping by, Rob
I’m pleased to see someone else using a Samsung NX camera! I recently purchased the NX300, and I’m delighted with it. Of course, I’m an amateur, not a professional like you, but I’ve been delighted with the image quality. I also have a Nikon D5000, and I prefer the NX300 for ease of use. Your photo here has a lot of pop!
Thank you 🙂 Yes I actually really love the images from the NX100. I find the camera produces exceptionally good photos when taking pictures of people. I recently ordered a NX to Canon FD adapter so I can use some old manual focus lenses my NX100. Should arrive next week! I am very excited. I will post something about it on my other blog http://www.RobMosesPhotography.com when I get it 🙂 Anyhow, thanks for stopping by and commenting. I’ll swing by your blog to check out some of your pictures.
I’ll have to check into that app. Love the finished product. Any problems in that neighbourhood with flooding Rob? We’ve been looking at homes in our river valley too and narrowly missed out on one recently (we offered full price + while someone else offered 10,000 over list…..bananas), now we’re thinking of this because it was 1 block from our river. Hope your doing ok there.
Hey Kelly, that’s a shame you missed out on that house! As for Bridgeland, I am pretty sure they are all good there as they are up a little bit higher than the river there. Thanks for stopping by! 😉
Thank you 🙂
I’ve never been… I should get to that fine city!
Ya come check it out! 🙂 Just make sure you don’t come in the winter haha.
I’m familiar with Winterpeg, so I should be good 🙂 I’m from Ontario 🙂
Oh ok haha. Well ya you’ll be fine then for sure 🙂 I used to live in Toronto for like 5 years and also when I was a kid, so I can attest to Calgary winters being similar to Toronto winters.
I can’t imagine how bad the flooding must be in some of the areas. Hope you are well!
Ya the flooding was crazy for sure. Thankfully I live 5min up the hill from downtown so we are all good 🙂 Thank you for your concern.
Sweet picture. Like the color.
Thank you 🙂
I wondered how things were there with the flooding. . .good to know you were above it.
Ya for sure! I live up the hill 🙂
