Something… Anything…

So there was no snowfall this weekend. I was expecting snow but ended up with a beautiful mid-autumn feel weekend. I remember someone saying ” It’s an Indian summer,” I don’t know if it was.

I have imaginative ideas of what an Indian summer is. For example, here is one. In the middle of great winters, out there, warm snow falls. It’s a very rare phenomenon etc BLA BLA BLA and so on.

According to Wikipedia, Indian summer is a period of unseasonably warm, dry weather that sometimes occurs in autumn in the Northern Hemisphere, unquote.

Alberta is winter land. By this I mean winter is the longest season here. It doesn’t go away quickly. Easily 6 months straight, compare to Victoria BC, where my wife grew up. Those not familiar with the geography of Canada. Victoria is the coastal province facing the mighty pacific ocean. Alberta is landlocked between two Canadian provinces, a territory, and Montana. Victoria is the land of wild berries where spring arrives early and autumn stays late into winter. Alberta is the Texas of Canada, let’s just put it that way.

Shoutout to my new friends/followers. Here are two pictures

  1. Nothing fancy about it. Just a random shot of a bicycle in front of a gas station here in Calgary. All the snow seem to have disappeared and people are having their last autumn fun. #nightshot

Bye bye autumn, welcome winter!

Last week, the first winter snow fell and hasn’t stopped since.  I  remembered it vividly because I had plans to go to the mountains that  weekend.

It was during the winter of last year that I discovered my love for photography. As part of my videography course, I had to take a few classes with photography students. I fell in love with the subject immediately.

 Fall over here (Calgary) is beautiful. This is my first fall as an amateur  photographer. There was the learning curve for autumn photography but  there’s nothing  google can’t fix.

I also learn that autumn comes and goes so fast. You won’t realize if you’re not paying attention. It definitely felt that way. The moment I thought the leaves were getting perfect, snow arrived.

Well, here are some pictures. The first 3 has some of the first snows of winter and the last is from mid-autumn.

For those interested in what type of camera I’m using, the first 3 pictures  are from my Galaxy s6 and the last one from my Sony a6000. I have one camera, my Sony a6000. That is why I use my galaxy s6 whenever I can.
