Hello and thank you for visiting my photo galleries. You can use the tabs above or the links below as you choose. The galleries will be updated periodically, with a last updated date so you can see what's new.
Abstracts, currently 12 images, last updated 20170523
These start as actual photographs that are manipulated with various image software tools.
Cats, currently 13 images, last updated 201816
Our two cats are popular subjects, but upon request I'll do a portrait of your cats.
Cityscapes, currently 8 images, last updated 20170417
Calgary is a beautiful city for photography.
Flowers, currently 23 images, last updated 20170816
Mostly from our garden. Beyond roses, dahlias, begonias, and lilies, don't ask me what they are. One is straight from the camera with only cropping applied. Look in the Macro gallery for more flower shots.
Image of the Month, last updated 20170801
At the end of the month I look over my photos and pick the one I think is best, for whatever reasons that seem good to me at the time. I blog about it and almost always include the runners up and why they were chosen. At the end of the year I'll do a Photograph of the year, and invite reader participation.
Landscapes, currently 13 images, last updated 20170430
The rolling Foothills and Rocky Mountains make a dramatic backdrop. Fish Creek Park is beautiful. More coming soon.
Look Up, currently 13 images, last updated 20170816
Sun rise, sun set, moon, stars, cloudscapes, weather. Maybe an aurora shot if I get lucky one day.
Macro, currently 19 images, last updated 20170807
These started with extension tubes on a 100 mm macro lens, but I've recently got a specialized 60 mm macro 1-5x magnification lens, and all future additions will be with this lens.
People, currently 12 images, last updated 20170816
I don't think of myself as a people photographer particularly, but after several race shoots I'm coming to see the complexity and beauty in the faces of ordinary people.
Skyline, currently 13 images, last updated 20170420
The Calgary skyline is always changing. New buildings illuminated by dramatic sun rise and sun sets, different every day. Added 6 photos from earlier sessions where I hadn't been consistent with star ratings or keywords. Added some comments about a few of the photos.
Still Life, currently 7 images, last updated 20170417
A gallery of images that don't fit anywhere else particularly.
Wild Rose Tri 2017, A page to link to many photographs taken at this event. At some point it will be taken down to make room for something else.
Lake Chaparral 2017 events, A page to link to several Google Photos albums of many photographs taken at this event. At some point it will be taken down to make room for something else. Note there is a link to photographs taken by Dawn, these are NOT mine.
In many photographer galleries you can click a few buttons to buy a framed print sent directly from the print shop. While I would be delighted to sell you a print, doing so automatically isn't a thing on Blogger. Please contact me keith at nucleus dot com and we will discuss what you'd like.
This blog has finished initial construction as of 20170417, but there's still some fine tuning and some images to find. Check back soon. You can sign up for email notifications of when I update.
