New York! Trip of a life time and tons of images!
On the onset of this little write up, just want to warn that the images attached to this post are not really safe for work :)
Had a great opportunity to shoot with Kate again. She's an amazing model to work with. Her understanding of poses, and light is second to none. We planned an outside setting for the shoot, but it being autumn in Alberta, the weather did not cooperate. That's one thing that went wrong.
It must have been a murmur of falling snow that woke me up this morning way before 6AM. It wasn't a huge surprise, considering it is November and we have been snowed on earlier than that in previous years.. It is almost gone by now but, I know, we have only a couple of weeks left before it will be a full blown winter again and I am resigned to it, really... I am!
It is truly wonderful to be able to witness changes of the seasons and record them for posterity. As much as I don't like the fact that summer is over, when it happens, I always find an enormous pleasure in watching the world change from green to golds and reds and yellows.
Our 22 year anniversary, and we decided to spend a day in the mountains. It's been almost 6 months since we took a trip there. I thought it would be a great time to try out some film shooting. So I dragged that beast of a camera, the Mamiya RB67, all over the place.
Thanksgiving has always been a celebration of fall for me. It's been our yearly tradition for the past decade or so to go out with my boys and gather all the colorful leaves, when they are available, dry them up and use them to decorate our Thanksgiving table.
You've, probably, noticed already, that we love visiting Elk Island National Park. One can't help but enjoy each visit there. A little peace and quiet, a bit of nature and a pretty sunset or two are just hard to resist.
Fall colors in Alberta don't last long. Keeping that in mind we took a short stroll in downtown Edmonton around Churchill Square and Shaw Conference Center on Sunday, disregarding the strong possibility of rain.
