This encounter was especially interesting as Floyd used to live in a town where I also lived for many years. Although I hadn’t seen Floyd for over a decade, I instantly recognized him, sat down and started chatting. Back then, I didn’t know anything about him…

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a fascination with old doors (hey, we all have our things!). Especially the ones that are a bit worn, weathered and in need of a fresh coat of paint. They have character and can quite often…

I don’t have a story to offer with these portraits; I just noticed him taking a smoke break and decided to start shooting. He was really down to earth and didn’t hesitate or question why I was taking his photos. Great guy. I had to run…

A few floral photos to give you all a visual break on my blog. As I have many other photographic interests, I thought it a good idea to change things up from time to time! Of course, most of these types of images can be…

Yesterday evening I met up with a Winnipeg legend of sorts. For many years Ed Ackerman has been considered an irritant for several Winnipeggers. I found him to be rather interesting and certainly an avid conversationalist! At first I didn’t realize who I was talking to…

Went for a quick walk around the downtown this evening and ended up chatting with Chad and Laura. They were taking a rest before moving on to their next destination, having recently arrived in the city. They travel regularly around the country by trainhopping. Laura…

Blaine was massively outgoing and energetic; so much so that we ended up talking on the street for just over 2 hours! He offered up several stories from his adventures that have taken him from British Columbia on the west coast of Canada to Winnipeg, a…

I met Will as he was waiting for his bus. I took one look at his awesome tattoos and wanted a photo feeling black and white was fitting for this portrait. He was really easy going and kindly allowed me to take a photo. We…

A couple photos of a really great guy I met on the street yesterday evening. I noticed him getting out of a car and immediately called out and said “I have to take your photo!” to which he replied with enthusiastic agreement. Super outgoing and friendly…

I met Shane tonight while heading home from a brief walk around the downtown. I wasn’t in a hurry and when I noticed Shane and another gentleman, I decided to stop and start a conversation. Shane was quite a well spoken young man and was…

By now, many of folks around the world have heard about or read the very sad and unfortunate news regarding Malaysia Airlines flight MH17. The circumstances surrounding this tragedy are equally devastating. As someone who regularly flies and finds the experience both necessary and amazing, I was…

I took this candid shot of Gord as I walked back to work after lunch. I spotted him standing in this shadowy corner and thought the light was excellent. I was tempted to put the camera into B&W mode, but instead felt the colours would…

I often upload photos to the Leica Fotografie International magazine / gallery with the hopes of having my images join the other great photos within their Master Shots, Photo Story, or Feature Photo sections. It’s a great way to showcase your work to a wide range…

Even in a situation like this, it’s good to take the camera out of the bag as you might catch something or someone interesting. Mindy (below) was travelling to Thunder Bay, Ontario and was hoping to catch a few rides along the way; she basically…

Noticed these two guys and just raised my camera and took the shot. I thought it was funny, the contrast between them – with their great tattoos and the balloons along with the image on the sign. Quickly went in closer for another shot. They were…

Three different scenes from three locations around Beijing. The subway, the vendor and the street. I simply love capturing moments like these.

I noticed this woman from across the street and quickly ran over and approached her; I liked how she was framed in the door way. I asked if I could take just one photo and she gave me a smile and nodded. I was happy…

I like seeing people going about their daily lives. Scenes that some might walk by and not think anything about, I like to stop and capture. These big cities are filled with endless opportunities for capturing people just being people. Have a great weekend everyone!

In a city as big as Beijing in a country with a population as massive as China, it can be really fun and interesting watching people. Here in Winnipeg, with our comparatively small population, variety of life can be difficult to capture at times –…
