I took a quick photograph this afternoon for the City of Airdrie of their Emergency Services. I had to do it in the very bright sun so I used some of my strobes for this one.

My friend Greg and I took our bikes and rode to Drumheller to visit Royal Tyrrell Museum. We met up with Charmaine and Tracy there and had a great picnic with a view :) Wonderful day :)

Today I did a photo shoot for Mount Royal University Recreation. They needed a photo to be used on the cover of the next Rec Guide. This time I took some photographs of students doing Yoga outside. Here is one of the shots :)

Yesterday evening I had a great engagement photo shoot in Banff National Park. I decided to leave earlier and ride my Vespa to visit British Columbia for a bit. It was a great trip and I loved every minute of it. The temperatures really varied from +26C to +6C. It was pouring rain on multiple occasions, I think I encountered some hail once, but I was prepared with my rain gear and had a great ride :) Engagement photographs soon to follow :)

2010-06-15 21:57 Art Yochim: Sergei, these are great. You should put a coffee table book together when you have enough photos.

Here is the slideshow I put together for Amanda and Greg of their beautiful wedding in Penticton, BC. Click on the image to see the slideshow. You can also click on the link to see the wedding blog post I did and on another link to see some of their engagement photographs in Revelstoke, BC :)

Home at last :) Today I did another long ride on my Vespa. This time I headed home. In total, on this trip, I rode for 1300 km and it was wonderful! I didn't unpack all the way yet and I'm already looking forward to a new trip, this time maybe somewhere in British Columbia :)

2010-06-17 10:43 Sergei Belski: Cathy, in my opinion every photographer should have one :)
2010-06-16 21:46 Cathy: I want one! :( Sorry for the random comment... just came across your blog and I love your work. I also have a dream that one day I will have a beige Vespa with pink racing stripes. Sigh.
2010-06-07 15:16 Sergei Belski: Thank you very much Arthur! Selling to Vespa... will see how it will go, for now I'm happy to document my little adventures :) I'm planning on having a little book in the future and have some little ideas but nothing concrete for now. I have been to Saskatchewan on multiple occasions, to photograph weddings, family portraits, and to visit my wife's family. I like it there!
2010-06-07 14:54 Art Yochim: Wow! Fantastic! I love your Vespa series. Have you considered selling these to Vespa? How did you like Saskatchewan? I am from there originally. So much quieter than central Alberta.

Just a relaxing day in Saskatoon :) I did a little city riding, its so beautiful around here with all the big trees on every street! In the morning I made an organic spicy omelet on my little portable stove, turned out to be better than I thought it would be :)

Yesterday morning I packed my things and headed to Saskatoon. When I was buying my scooter I was thinking of taking it on a longer trips and this trip was one of the trips I was thinking about :) With all the stops on my way to take photographs I made it here in 9.5 hours. I rode about 600km so far and it was great!

Before this trip I bought a MSR Fuel Bottle to carry some extra gas with me. A couple of times I almost ran out of gas, and I know its not much, but I felt better having this bottle with me :)
