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 :).

A Rare Gem

Old new building - People of Calgary Street - Rob Moses Photography
Camera: Canon 5D & 24-70L @24mm – Settings: 1/100th // f14 // ISO 320

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.

Photography in the Streets

Here is another street shot for you from the city of Calgary. I was walking up the street when I seen these people doing a little shoot of their own. I always find it fun to watch what other people do while taking pictures and this particular moment did not disappoint, well for me a least. The original photo was a wider view, but I thought it to be a little more interesting of a picture to leave out the subject being photographed. I’ll leave that to your imagination ;).

A Burst of Color

Here is another shot from the streets of Calgary. This girl just stood out to me because of her cool sweater. She was a burst of color in a sea of regular jackets and hoodies. I don’t know who makes that sweater, but it’s great!

Note: This photo was shot at f2 with a Canon 135mm L. The picture was cropped and would have had better bokeh if I was closer to the subject.

I will be hitting the streets again tonight to try and find another stranger to talk to about Calgary. Hopefully it goes as well as it did last time 🙂
