Today was a nice and relaxing day for us and we spent most of it at the beach. The beach at this resort is not the greatest, it has many rocks so it's not very nice to swim but there is a nice beach 5-10 min walk away from our resort so I think we will go there next time. What you see on the photographs below are not rocks, they are sand bags, placed around our beach. I never saw it before and not 100% sure why they are there, I think it's to stop the waves. It was fun to play on them, trying to climb over them with the waves.

While getting in the water we were attacked by fish. They were swiming everywhere around me and I got bitten. I tried to take a photo but didn't really get anything very nice. I also took some shots of the local wildlife on the way to our hotel room.

For the New Year celebration we had a nice lobster dinner and spent the rest of our evening at the beach, listening to the ocean. Happy New Year everyone!

After some de-icing we were on our way! I had a window seat so I was able to catch some nice shots of the sunrise and other things that we were flying over. We arrived to the resort in the late afternoon and it was too dark for any pictures so we just had a nice dinner and spent some time in our room reading some information about the resort and I had a chance to update my blog. On an other note, I noticed that locals don't really have mustaches so I will be shaving my mustache off :) Tomorrow we will see what the resort looks like and hopefully I will be able to post some photos. I wish everyone a Happy New Year!

We are siting in the airport right now. I didn't know this but they have free Internet now in the Calgary airport! This morning I woke up at 4am, put on my shorts, and went to shovel snow. As I mentioned Tracy and I are on our way to spend a week in Mexico. As you can probably see, I grew a mustache, to better fit in with the locals down there :)

I hope you all are enjoying the snow and cold weather here in Calgary! Tracy and I are off to Mexico for a week to spend some time with our family. If I will have Internet I will do my best to update my blog as often as I can so please check it for all the updates.

Yesterday evening, for the second day straight, I spent some time at the Zoo. This time I photographed Christmas Lights. The weather was great, I think it was +2 C, it was wonderful but thousands of people decided to come so it wasn't the best for my photographs.

There were many interesting and fun things for kids to do.

I didn't have to work today but I thought I would go to the Zoo and try to get some images anyway. With -25 C outside and it being Boxing day there were not many people out there and I had a great time.

This evening I photographed a corporate Christmas party for IHS at the Red and White Club. I photographed another event back in September for IHS and it was great to be invited back and to see all the people again. I'm very happy with the photographs so far and I had a great time taking them! I have a bunch of photographs to go though but here are a few of my favorites.

I just photographed Costco wharehouse here in Airdrie, it was huge! The fun part of this photo assignment was in me getting there. With the weather this morning, blowing snow and very slippery roads, it was a very fun drive. I'm very happy that I got winter tires for my little car and it drives great!

I'm back doing some photo assignments for a new issue of AirdrieLIFE magazine. Here are a couple of photographs from today's assignment.

Yesterday night was great! I had a chance to photograph The Australian Pink Floyd Show at Jack Singer Concert Hall! Original Pink Floyd is one of my favorite bands, for sure in my top three. It was great to see a cover band live and they didn't disappoint!

My friend Alex and I just came back from a day trip to Banff National Park. The weather was wonderful, company was great, and I had a very good time! I didn't go though all of my photographs yet but here are a few of my favorites so far.

Recently we had a pretty good snowfall here in Airdrie so I decided to take some Christmas lights photographs. I spent some time at Airdrie Festival of Lights, it was fun and the weather was excellent. Just before going to the Festival I took a shot of our house as well.

I just came back from a wedding. This was my last wedding of 2008 and I had a great day! When I woke up we had some snow on the ground and it was raining. Not a good start, but by about 11 am the sun came out and we ended up with a wonderful weather! One disadvantage a winter wedding is that the sun sets very early and there is not as much time for photographs. We had to be quick about it but we still ended up with some great photographs.

I had some time so I decided that it was time to do some renovations around the house. We have a spare room that was bright pink and they did a pretty bad job painting it. Paint was everywhere: windows, doors, and ceiling. Tracy and I picked the color and I already taped and primed the room. Hopefully will have some time next week to finish it all.

Tracy and I woke up early today and drove to cutdown a Christmas tree for our house. It was very cool, we walked around until we found the tree that we wanted. We cut it down and its only cost us $5. The money goes to help children so it was very great that way as well. I think we were the smallest car there and some people looked at us strange when we were tying a 9 feet tree to the roof of my MINI.

I just came home from Mount Royal college where I photographed a couple of games. MRC Cougars played SAIT's Trojans. This were my last games before the semester brake and I had a fun evening photographing them. Here are a few of my favorites. If you have kinds in sports, please email me, I do photograph kids of all ages.

Tracy and I are going to Mexico for a week at New Years and I'm getting very excited! I never done underwater photography but for this trip I bought an underwater case for my little camera. Hopefully I will have some photographs of fish :)

November 24, 2008

Tracy and I just came back from West Edmonton Mall. We had a great time playing mini golf and doing some shopping. It was like a little vacation and I'm very happy we were able to get away for a day :)
