Around The Bridge Shooting Mobile

Here are a couple Calgary pictures I took with my Sony QX100. A funny little camera that produces good results :).

Last week I decided to dig out my Sony QX100 and snap a couple of photos with it when I was walking downtown one day. In the first shot, I was crouching on the grassy hill by the street waiting for a biker to come by, when this guy came zooming I got the shot I was after :). In the 2nd shot I was perched on this little bridge look out and just took the shot when I had a few interesting people in the shot to hold down the bottom edge of the shot.

If you’re not familiar with the Sony QX100, it attaches (or not) to your phone via wifi and uses your phone as the view finder. It then saves a 18mp shot to a micro SD and a 2mp shot to your phone for sharing (there are many other saving options). The images are pretty…

The City of Calgary

I decided to start adding some pictures of the city of Calgary it self. I thought this might be interesting for some of the readers who have never been to Calgary before. Kind of like putting a face to a voice if you will 🙂 Clearly this photo cuts off a few stories of the buildings directly in front, the reason is I was shooting it from a couple stories up.

The only reason I shot this photo was because of the wicked old building the girl is walking in front of. I love old buildings like this and as the city of Calgary grows the less you see such buildings. For instance, a company here just tore down a old 6 story building built in 1912 to make way for a new set of buildings. I am all for growth and new big buildings, but I feel keeping around the old buildings gives the city a lot of character. However, in the defence of the new development of the 1912 buildings site, it should be noted that, that particular building went over some rather unpleasing renovations in 1967 which had the building clad in marble. Although that might sound nice, it wasn’t haha. Anyhow, I love the building in the picture I took and I hope they don’t tare it down! 🙂

Bellow are some pictures of the 1912 building referenced here. Photo’s by unknown photographers via imageshack.
