City of Lethbridge Winter Photos

Monday, March 26th, 2012

As I previously mentioned, last year I had a contract with the City of Lethbridge to take photographs for their new website. I had a great time always being on the look out for photo opportunities, and wanted to post my favorites, by season, throughout this next year! These aren’t necessarily photos they chose, but these are definitely the ones I liked best and wanted to share.

Even though it’s currently spring, the weather seems to say otherwise so I’ll start out with all of the snowy photos, some of which were taken in April anyhow ;) (more…)

The Annandale House | Lethbridge Christmas Photos

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

Over the next few months, I’ll be posting some of my favorite photos I took during my contract with the City of Lethbridge. Though I always loved looking at this house, last year was the first time I actually stopped, got out of the car, and took photos of it! The Annandale House on 13th Street South is actually a Lethbridge Historic site, so this was a learning experience for me. Driving by does not do it justice as their yard is filled with numerous Christmas decorations that you can only see from the sidewalk. There is such a great presence around this house at Christmas :) (more…)

Some Flowers, in the Crowsnest Pass

Wednesday, September 21st, 2011

Winter is just around the corner, so I wanted to share some memories from the summer! It’s not too often I take photos that don’t have people in them, but back in July when I had a dinner break for Erika and Josh’s wedding, I wandered around my mom’s flowers with my macro lens and found some neat things :) (more…)

Lethbridge Whoop Up Days

Thursday, September 1st, 2011

This year I did Lethbridge’s Whoop Up Days a little differently… instead of going on rides and packing along a point and shoot, I brought a tripod and a good camera! I dragged myself out there with the intention to stay just a little past twilight, which would be about two hours; Cam was too sick to go and I was in a grumpy, tired mood all day, so it took a lot of effort to leave the house. Once I got there, I had so much fun taking photos that I stayed for over three hours :) I’ve been wanting to do this for a few years now and glad I finally crossed it off the to-do list.

Sadly they raised the price of individual ride tickets so I opted not to take in a ride, but instead enjoyed a jumbo “elephant ear” as a reward when I was finished, and ate it while watching Prism. Heck yeah! (more…)

City of Lethbridge New Website Photography!

Friday, April 1st, 2011

I’m so excited to finally post about this! A few months ago the City of Lethbridge contacted me to work together over the next year building an image collection they could have for both internal use and for their brand new website. Their website finally launched this week, and it was awesome to see my photos on the front page! I have a number of images throughout the site, but since this went live only a quarter of the way into the project, there will be many more to come. If I ever have a moment, I’ll try to post a few of my favorite shots from the project as they come up.

I’ll be working with them until autumn, so keep an eye out for more photos! (more…)

Disneyland for Christmas

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

Each time I go to Disneyland, I intend to blog my favorite photos but never get around to it… well, no more! This time around it was a challenge to find photos of things I have never taken there before, and with a few new Christmas elements and special touches around the park (along with some inclement weather), the task was much easier than I expected! Even though it rained quite a bit, it was nice to get away from the snow for a week and have a break :) (more…)
