Foggy memories…

13 Dec 2014

Everybody has them, one day or another. Those foggy memories, not remembering what happened the previous night. Depending on the situation, that may be a good or a bad thing. They are better forgotten forever Smile. But some foggy memories are worth remembering for a long time, like the ones that you have from a walk though that fog.

A bridge into eternity

With your camera of course. Sharing those memories is the next best thing, so here we go…

By night

07 Dec 2014

Night time is a favourite of mine. Sometimes I get criticism that I take too many pictures during the night. That is perhaps true. At the same time, those pictures are really a different kind of the ones you can take during the day.

What about Holiday Lights or light trails? You can’t get them during daytime…

Expecting sand

23 Nov 2014

The Spirit Sands near Carberry, Manitoba is a very unique piece of nature in the province. It is considered a “desert” but is not as dry as a “real” desert. However, the vegetation and animals living there are typical for a desert.

The Devil’s Punch Bowl

When I went back to the Spirit Sands a few weeks ago, I had purposely waited a long time before going there. A first time I ended up without water

Big City walk

14 Nov 2014

Here in Manitoba we like to think that Winnipeg is a big city. Some people only suspect that there are bigger cities out there. I have lived in some pretty big cities in my life but New York is by far the biggest I have visited until now. It also has the biggest bridges I have ever seen in a city.

Manhattan Bridge

On a walk with a friend in New York, we came across many a great spot for a photo. It’s always better to go on a walk like this with someone who knows the place. It saves you from walking around in places where there is nothing to see.

Skies of Manitoba (6)

08 Nov 2014

Ever wondered why photographers always look at the sky? Not to know what weather will be in an hour… No, the photographer looks at the sky to see if there is not a shot to be had. In Manitoba we can have lots of shots and hardly ever turn up with the same.

Culmination of the evening

While I lived in Europe, most of the time, the skies were similar to the skies of the previous days. Here in Manitoba that statement doesn’t fly.

After Dark (2)

02 Nov 2014

A term that computer users all over the world will remember with a certain fondness. It was THE screensaver from the ‘90s. Oh, those flying toasters… Well, flying objects can be had everywhere after dark. You just have to go out and find them.

Waiting for service

I didn’t find any flying toasters or toast when I went out the other night. What I found was way better.

Final greenery

27 Oct 2014

It’s that time of the year again. Time to take in as much greenery as we can before the white stuff blots everything out. For many it comes as no surprise that summer is gone. After all, it is end October by now.

A little colour

Soon the green stuff will make place for mostly brown hues. Many people will already call that “dead stuff”. While there is a lot of beauty to be found in there, for now we cling to the last blades of green that Mother Nature has to offer.

Snapshots

21 Oct 2014

Trying to be artistic with every shot you take is a tiring endeavour. Since you are always your own worst critic, it becomes tiring to the point of giving up photography altogether . So from time to time you have to let go of that artistic push and decide to go with the flow.

Iconic

Being in a big moving crowd always helps to go with that flow. Going against it is at your own risk Smile. While I was in New York, I tried to accommodate the artistic streak; often enough, all what came out was a snapshot.
