This all really started with a phone call to my friend that works at Enterprise rent a car. He hooked me up with a staff discount on a small Toyota from the Kamloops Airport. I was originally just driving a bit out of my way to go visit family that I hardly ever see. Last […]

Great Weather For A LightHouse

IMG_9069.jpg

I feel like a Lighthouse would enjoy great weather way more than the rest of us. I mean that if a light house was an actual human of course. Like imagine having to stand on guard every moment of every hour of every day, ready at all times to lead people home?

You don’t get to move, or leave, or take a break. You just have to do your job, all the time with no questions asked.

You are single-handedly responsible for keeping people off the rocks that could lead to them crashing and drowning to their death. What kind of responsibility is that?

I feel like, on good weather days (Days without a potential storm in the middle of the night) that a lighthouse must feel some sort of overwhelming peace. A relaxation that only a factor that is out of our control yet leading toward the side of caution can grant. A peace so freeing that you can’t help but feel alive.

A Lighthouse must love days with a great weather forecast.

If a light house was a human of course…

Albion Falls

Wasn’t really much for waterfalls. I mean, I get that they are awesome, but I just never felt a desire to go and photograph them. The other day I was feeling kinda down, so I asked Sarah if she wanted to go on a photography adventure. She said “yes” and that made me super happy.

luckily there is a cool waterfall liek 3 mins from her house. So we went there. Albion falls, in Hamilton Ontario.

My goal was to shoot a timelapse. As I’ve already shot a long exposure here before and it came out purple thanks to my 3 dollar ND filters.

I started from the bottom (like drake)

Then tried the top.

Taking roughly 20 min time lapses at each. 4 second intervals.

Galt.

 

Had a few hours to kill in Galt Ontario.

Walked around with a 40mm 2.8 Pancake attached to a Canon 60D

Galt has, for a while now, been the subject of alot of cameras. A few horror films have been shot there. And it seems everyone and their 4 year old wants to instagram the place. Painters and poets also seem to flock there. I guess I don’t blame them. It is a cool glimpse into the “once was, now isn’t” book.

 

The cloud texture made a cool backdrop for some silhouetting in post.

so, here are some eerie shots of old Galt Ontario

Today, I turned down a Job opportunity.

I don’t actually have a real job, so that was probably a bad idea.

I turned down 35k a year. ( which is significant in comparison to my 12k a year I’m making now)

I guess, I’m just not into money.

Maybe I’m into funding however.

Money is a tool to help you get other tools, so you can accomplish a goal.

Money is not a net that catches you when everything falls apart.

Money is a mirage.

Maybe life is a mirage too.

Anyways, I said no to an opportunity that was big. However, by doing that I through myself blind into something much, much bigger.

Hope.

Come Fly With Me. 

  
Iphone 5. 

There is so much peace in flying at 35 thousand feet. 

It’s this time when everything is out of your hands. There is nothing that you can do to control your direction or your leg room. 

It forces me to let go of my constant need to be in control of my surroundings. It allows me to let go, and find some sort of comforting peace within my upright position folding tray, and pack of peanuts. 
Took this satisfying wing shot while at peace.

After dropping this camera down a mountain, I’ve started wrestling with light leaks. Some may say that Light leaks are creative and artsy, but not when you are trying to take a non-lightleaked photo..Duhh.

This was one of the few on the roll that was not affected. Haven’t really figured out why yet.

Thank you so much for following, and reading my blog.

Drama. (day 11)

IMG_0238.JPG

I realized that I weigh about 180 pounds more than him. So I took a picture.

This is an iPhone 5s photo. – over cast cloudy day obviously – I used snapseed to edit. – at first the shot was very over exposed by the back grounding sky- so I used the HDR process in snapseed and boom!

I was hoping that this lil guy would be smiling – but he was fairly unimpressed…
