A few images from the past several days. A mix of architecture and people. Scenes from the city I call home and a few of the folks who live here. Enjoy the rest of the week ahead!

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 –…

Two completely random candid moments of two very friendly people! First is Nazareth (unfortunately, the story behind his name is a mystery), a quick portrait as I passed him on the street. Other than getting his name and shaking hands, this encounter was over in…

Did a quick after work photo walk today, trying to get at least a few minutes on the street before the weather turned bad. Noticed these two chatting on the sidewalk and made my way over, and quickly took the first photo. I liked how…

I encountered Mark while on a regular photo walk in downtown Winnipeg a few days ago. As I made my way along the street I noticed him sitting on a bench. Seeing his tattoos I said hello and began talking rather candidly, first about his tattoos followed…

It was a great day for some street photography / portraiture. I mixed it up a bit with some candid and permission asked photos – something that tends to keep things interesting for me. Also, thanks to everyone who commented and / or visited the…

Just a quick post tonight to let you know that I now have another site up and running! I’ve had several people suggest I do this, so I took their advice. I’ll be posting everything that isn’t street photography / street portraiture related including travel,…

As some of you might already know, I not only enjoy street photography / portraiture, but a variety of photographic subjects as well. This includes rural decay. I classify rural decay as old rustic scenes with centuries old barns, homesteads, rusted out vehicles, farm equipment…
