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 :).

This City Street at Night

If you’ve liked my Facebook page you probably already seen this photo before. But if you haven’t, well here you go! ;). I shot this one from an overpass on one of the busier streets in Calgary. I like the vantage point because of the urban backdrop.

A Reflection of Calgary

Last weekend I went for a little walk through the East Village and into Inglewood along the the riverside. On my way back downtown I walked by this little pond and immediately pictured this photo in my mind. At the time there was a bit of wind and the water wasn’t quite still, but I imagined with the right weather and time of night a good picture was to be had. I went back a few days later when there wasn’t a lot of wind.

When I showed up to shoot the photo the pond was rather still and I was excited. As I made my way down the embankment to get the right spot for the reflection I wanted I heard some splashing. I stopped setting up and watched the pond for a moment to see what was going on. To my surprise more splashing started to occur and then I saw something swimming around, it was a beaver! Although I found this little beaver to be quite amusing and fun to see, now was not the time. The beaver was creating a lot of unwanted ripples in the water. Also the night was falling fast and my window of opportunity was slipping away for the sky I wanted for my picture. So naturally I decided the best course of action would be to try and reason with this non-english speaking animal haha. “Hey beaver, can you please stop swimming and splashing! I only go so much time to get this shot”. Now as ridiculous as that sounds (a grown man in the dead of night talking to a beaver in a pond), it seemed to have worked. He swam around for another few minutes and finally decided to listen to reason and let me shoot my photo.

Thanks Beaver! 😉
