Crosswords While Walking

Kind of a funny street shot I took this summer. I’m not sure how stoked this guy was I was taking his picture haha. He couldn’t have cared too much thought, because he didn’t say anything to me :).

I was walking across the Centre Street Bridge here in Calgary the other day and I saw this guy walking up the bridge doing a crossword puzzle while walking! I put my camera up to my face and kept walking in his direction waiting for him to put his face up to see where he was going like a whale in the sea bobbing up for air haha. As soon as that face popped up, CLICK! Gotchya! And I just kept on walking haha. His facial expression is hilarious, because he seems to be confused as to why there is a camera in his face rather than another zombie faced pedestrian haha. I love these little street photography interactions with people :).

Train Into The City

This is one my favourite pictures I took of the summer. It’s one of the subway bridges going over a street with part of the Calgary Skyline in the background.

I shot this photo last night from SAIT (a local college). I got there a bit early and tried a few shots while it was lighter out, but I knew waiting till the sun when down more would give a much better effect. Once the sun went down more I waited for a train to go by so I could get the lights streaks in the shot. I had my camera on a 2 second timer, but timing for the train was still rather easy because just before the train comes into frame there is a cross walk with bells that ring. Anyhow, it was a nice night and I’m happy with the picture :).

Cecilia – Writing in Cosmopolitan Calgary

I ran into Cecilia at one of my favourite photo spots in the city, Crescent Road at the top of McHugh Bluff Park. I had just arrived there and got all my stuff ready to go when I saw Cecilia walking towards me. I said to my self, “this girl looks like the prefect candidate”. I walked over to her and told her what I was up to and if she was interested in participating, clearly she was and I couldn’t have been happier. I love it when the first person I ask says yes :).

This spot is a particular favourite of mine in Calgary. The pond is in Princes Island Park and is a nice place to grab a seat and relax. I think theses 2 people would agree that this is the place to be :).
