Ever since I got my Canon 5DMkIII, I have shot most of my pictures in raw format. For those who don't know what this is, raw is the digital equivalent of a film negative. This camera also has the ability shoot straight black and white pictures, so that's what this gallery is all about.
Home. Phantom is relaxing on the couch, the computer is out and the deck is open. A nice summer night.
My view off the deck.
Dad & Mom. I took this original picture on the deck of the Iron Goat Pub in Canmore. This photo now sits on a table in my living room. The frame is a curved glass frame that I found at the antique shop in Canmore. I'm realizing that curved glass frames are a bit of a rare thing these days, which is too bad. They look amazingly fantastic.
Two shots of Hayley, along with her great grandparents in that middle picture. And if you look closely, there are two of Hayley's old uncles on that middle picture when they were much younger. (I'm the one on the right.) The picture on the left is an Eastern Orthodox church icon. Our family comes from an Eastern Orthodox background, so this is a part of our family history. This particular Icon is Christ and the Apostles.
This coin has an interesting story...one which I will tell another time!
My Grandfather's pocket watch.
This is a Rosary that I found in our parkade. There are several retired Priests that live in my condo building, so I'm assuming that it might have been one of theirs. When I found it, I did post a note "found, please call....", but I never did hear from anyone. It now hangs on my wall...and I kind of like it.
This is a medal from WWII. I have a few war medals in my collection. I do have an interest in historical items like this.
The urban jungle, looking east from my deck. I can remember when I first moved into this place in 1999, none of this was here.
Crossing 8th Street SW. I caught these folks crossing the street, just as this Chevy with a massive air blower drove by. Awesome.
