A beautiful summer evening on Nose Hill Park. From here you can see forever. It is a nice place to get a little nature in the middle of the city.
Not far from where I live in a small industrial area. There are lots of Images to be created. I pass this car when I go down a side street to a bottle depot. The Yellow Clematis creeps over the car throughout the summer. I am sure this was a beautiful car years ago but now mother nature has slowly removed the “shine” from this car.
I was looking through some old images and came across this one. This image was created almost 6 years ago on a family trip to Disney World in Florida during Christmas in 2010. This was in an area called Animal Kingdom. I remember that it wasn’t Florida warm that year but it was warmer than Canadian winter. A great family trip and a great memory.
This is a late summer image from the University of Saskatchewan campus. A beautiful and very green campus (at least some of the year). The use of bricks in the campus architecture is a common theme. It adds a beautiful texture to compliment the many trees and green spaces. A great place to learn and grow.
It was a cold and foggy morning. The fog became frost on the leafless trees. It wasn’t too light out but that helped with the abstract images I was creating.
Once again my job took me out to the countryside. After a meeting and dropping off a truck I grab a ride back to the city with a co-worker. Since I was the passenger I could experiment with some long exposure images taken out the window at 90 kph. This is one of the resulting images.
Behind an old building that is not in use anymore sits this outdoor storage yard. Someone put a lot of effort into storing these old street light heads but mother nature has put more effort into weathering the covers and shelves away.
I thought the weathering of the shelves and covers was interesting and the weeds growing out of the cracks were a testament to the fact that this area has been forgotten.the lines in the concrete caught my eye as well, not many of them are square or rectangular.
As I walk around the city I find many old signs. Some do not have any purpose anymore and have never been removed although some still mean what they say. Here is an old sign on a power pole that still means what is says even though it is very old.
I like the textures in this image as well as the different fonts on the sign. The rust and ageing sign as well as the would add some character. The newer aluminum inspection tags contrast the older parts of this power pole.
