While in Osaka, I visited the Osaka Aquarium KAIYUKAN which is one of the largest’s aquariums in the world.
Lake Louise is always beautiful, but I am especially enjoying how the colours of fall are still now peering through snow. In fact, the snow made the trails up to the Lake Agnes Tea House too slippery, so I walked around the back instead along a trail I’ve never explored before.
Last summer, I visited the Calgary Zoo, 5 years after my first visit there in 2012. This time, I used my Fujifilm 55-200mm telephoto lens which worked well for allowing me to “get close” to so many of the animals without any other distractions.
I’d like to thank my friends Peter and Rodman for identifying the subjects of my favourite photos included in this post. Enjoy!
I recently participated in the Scott Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk through the Eau Claire area of Calgary. Each year, photographers around the world participate in photo walks in their communities on the same day, entering a photo contest for a chance to win prizes. Personally, I enjoy the opportunity to explore parts of Calgary in a new way and observing how other photographers capture the same scenes.
I previously participated in a photo walk in Inglewood in Calgary.
Below are a few of my favourite photos from this year’s walk.
There aren’t too many places in Calgary which are truly “gritty”, but I’ve been working on a collection of images for years which seem to fit the definition in a visual way.
