Dreaming of a better weather. Took this photo last week but didn't have a chance to post it.

For all of you, who follow my "Calgary Wedding Photographer Vespa Adventures", and everybody should... if you were wondering if I went out to do some riding in this crazy weather? Wonder no more, yes I did! I didn't go for a long ride, but some riding is better than none. Its good that I did it in the morning because weather in Airdrie and Calgary got much worse :(

2010-04-29 14:05 Sergei Belski: It was a wonderful ride, the weather wasn't as bad as some people think, and its totally fine for riding. Survival wasn't the goal, fun ride was :)
2010-04-29 13:16 Mark: Sergei, just because you survived it doesn't mean it was a good idea. :-p I like the top photo, though.
2010-04-29 12:22 Tracy B!: Yes, you accomplished something--SURVIVAL!
2010-04-29 10:32 Sergei Belski: Yes that is what they designed it for! Much more fun riding in this kind of weather, you feel like you accomplished something :)
2010-04-29 10:14 Kevan: You know you're insane right? ;-)
2010-04-29 09:13 Tracy B!: This is EXACTLY the purpose of this scooter, I am pretty sure this is what the makers always envisioned--NOT! Love the 1st snowy pic with the train car & scooter ;)

A couple of photo shoots for me today for the AirdrieLIFE magazine to go with their stories.

2010-04-26 19:47 Ekaterina: Aaaah! Orange!:)
2010-04-25 22:16 Greggy_Baby: I just noticed our reflection in the mailbox pic. You'll have to photoshop that out :)
2010-04-24 23:03 Sergei Belski: Yes I have been neglecting it a bit lately :( Its just much easier to stop and take a photo of this little thing! Hope I can get out on one of the rides with the MINI club!
2010-04-24 20:54 Trevor Z: But your MINI is feeling neglected :D
2010-04-24 08:51 Sergei Belski: Thank you very much!!
2010-04-24 08:31 JaY : We do enjoy watching the life of a little Orange scooter as it unfolds! All the GREAT new encounters it meets.

For the last three days Tracy and I have been taking a Scooter Training Course. It was great to play around with a bunch of different scooters, meet some nice people, and also it was wonderful to ride together with my wife! Today wasn't very pleasant, it was very cold, raining, and very windy. On our way home we even had some hail :(

Busy day for me today! Rode my Vespa for more than 140km. I had to get some prints done in Calgary for my clients and some canvas prints for an art show, and of course a photo shoot for the AirdrieLIFE magazine.

This is one of the reasons I love my Vespa. I parked near a mall and soon after someone else parked their scooter right beside mine. It is the whole lifestyle thing :)

2010-04-20 21:09 Sergei Belski: I love it.. its very easy to stop and take a photo, so I'm sure I will have lots of photos :) I'm going to take some bride/groom photos on it some day later on :)
2010-04-20 17:13 Ekaterina: Looks like you really enjoy your Vespa, she gets a lot of camera attention too:) I love the two scooters shot, too funny!

I had a wonderful day in Drumheller yesterday! Some local photographers and I organized a photo shoot with a couple of models, where we played around with strobes, and just had an awesome time in general!

Yesterday I received some wedding albums for my wedding clients and as samples for my studio. I thought I would take some photographs and share. All of them look wonderful as always!

The weather was beautiful today so I went for a ride on my Vespa. I actually didn't touch my car in more than two weeks now, I go on my scooter pretty much everywhere :)

2010-04-20 14:17 Sergei Belski: Thank you Shelley! We'll see, after I will drive it for at least a year I will see what photos I will have :) So far I just love stopping and snapping a shot or two :)
2010-04-20 06:25 Shelley: I really think you need to do a book of your sweet vespa pics! They are awesome!

Today I had a photo shoot with Natalia, she was looking for some photographs to be used on her website.

Photographed another event at SAIT this afternoon. This time it was School of Business Annual Student Awards. You can see some photographs I photographed for SAIT for their MacPhail School of Energy Annual Student Awards Ceremony back on March 29th.

A quick photo shoot for the AirdrieLIFE this morning. These photographs were taken at a show home that I already photographed on October 29, 2009. Later this evening I'm photographing an event at SAIT, should be fun :)

The last day of a little break in my busy life :) Tomorrow I start the week by having a couple of photo shoots, one in Airdrie and one in Calgary :) Today Tracy and I went to see our friends and their family in Calgary for a nice BBQ, the food was great and the ride there was also wonderful! Good times!

2010-04-13 09:57 Sergei Belski: I'm going to try to have more BBQs this summer so I'm sure we will have some together :)
2010-04-13 09:10 Dawn : LOOKS GREAT, HOPE WE CAN GRILL WHEN I GET HOME....

The weather here can change in minutes, earlier today was a nice sunny day, but when I opened my garage door to go to the bank I saw this :( I took my Vespa and although it was very very windy, I made it to the bank without any problems. When I came home, the scooter had a bunch of ice on it, we were all snowed in, and didn't have any electricity in the house :( Hope it will be a nicer weather on Saturday, when I have to take my scooter to Calgary for a maintenance appointment.

Rode my Vespa to the Calgary Wedding Photographers meeting at lunch today. It was great to see some friends. Parking in Calgary downtown with a scooter is also great! I wish I didn't need to carry all my backup cameras and other equipment when I photograph weddings or I would ride this scooter to the weddings as well :)

Another little Vespa adventure for me today. My friend Greg bought a motorcycle but he only has learners license for now so I drove with him all the way South of Calgary (140km in total) to pick up the motorcycle. We brought it back to my house and decided to leave it here for now so we can ride together.

It was probably interesting for the passing by cars to see me laying on the side of the road while I was taking the following photo :)

Yesterday morning I spent some time taking photographs for the Calgary Zoo. It was a beautiful day and I had a great time!
