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 :).

Sunset Over Calgary

I shot this one a week or so ago and thought it might also be worth sharing here :).

I shot this on Tuesday evening off an overpass near my house. The previous day I was driving over said overpass at the exact same time I took this picture. As I crossed the overpass I saw right away what a great shot it could be, so I noted the time and came back the next day. The photo is not exactly how I had pictured it in my mind, but it’s pretty close :).

Waiting for Trains

I went out on a street shooting mission today and I got a bunch of good photos that I am happy with. This one is was the very last shot I took before I hopped on the train home and is probably my favourite from the day.

On a fun little side note I bumped in to Kris while I was enjoying a coffee on Stephen Ave. The more I go out and bump into people I know the more I feel like a real Calgarian, dare I say I am becoming one ;).

No Cars on 7th Ave

This is not your typical street photography shot, but this is not your typical street. This is 7th Avenue in Calgary. Strange thing about this street is you are not allowed to drive on it and it is right in the middle of downtown Calgary! The city has reserved 7th Avenue strictly for trains and buses. When I first learned of this I found it to be quite strange, as I had never seen such a thing. I don’t know how typical this is compared to other cities, but to me it seems rather strange. On the edge of the east side of downtown one of the train lines is underground and comes aboveground as it turns onto 7th Ave. In my opinion they should have just kept the train underground as it went through the downtown core. I honestly can’t see why they wouldn’t have done that, especially since we have such long winters here in Calgary. I am sure it has something to do with the cost of putting the train underground, but I think it would have been worth it in the long run. At least the train is free downtown!

* Incase you where wondering, I shot this from a pedestrian over pass and I have no idea what all those fire trucks were doing there haha. Sorry 😉
