2012-02-05 19:32 Sergei Belski: Thank you :) Just drove in a back alley somewhere in Calgary.. one of the shops was painted bright blue so I took some photos :)
2012-02-05 13:05 SonjaM: Symmetry and colors. Photographic classics. Where did you find that blue wall?

I'm back from Mexico and back shooting some commercial work. Yesterday I took some portraits at St. Mary's University College.

Last day in Mexico for Tracy and I. We didn't do very much, just tried to relax and hang out by the pool. Tracy, Mandy, and I decided to paint some dishes, it was fun although I'm not the greatest painter :) (my creation is that yellow dish with red peppers)

Have a wonderful vacation!!! Pictures are looking awesome!

Nothing really new today... Tracy and I just did lots of walking, we hiked for about 4 hours, trying to see how far from the resort we can get. I did it bare feet and my feet are really really sore now.

2012-01-09 09:49 Tracy B!: Love the intensity!!!!

Tracy and I, and a couple of our friends, spent some time at Calgary Motorcycle Show earlier today. I love going to this type of shows but I have to admit that I didn't like this one as much as I did the last year's show.

It was sad to see that smaller bikes and scooters were not represented very well, but I guess what did I expect living in Calgary.

2012-01-12 12:35 Sergei Belski: Hi Aenea, good to hear from you!! Hope all is well with your family! No actually the show was pretty small in bike selection. I definitely didn't' see anything that would make me trade in my Vespa, I like it too much! I do like Moto Guzzi bikes but they didn't have any at the show :(
2012-01-12 06:34 Aenea: Ciao Sergei! Did you see anything at the show that made you want to trade in your trusty Vespa?

Here are some photographs from a basketball game I photographed last night for St. Mary's University College.

2012-01-02 14:44 Maple: I wished I have rings loke those.
2012-01-01 21:47 Cheryl T: I agree with Stacey, my favorite is the moss and the clear and red rocks is second.
2012-01-01 21:43 Stacey T: The moss(because the ring is stunning) and the glass stones because it's my favourite over all!
2012-01-01 21:42 Shelley: The "I do" shot! It's awesome! They all are!
2012-01-01 21:36 Tracy B!: NICE!!! Love the "I do" ring shot the best!!! 2nd would have to be with the clear & red rocks!! Keep up the creativity for 2012!!!

First ride of the year! I have to say that riding in -13C on a highway is pretty cold. This morning I went out to meet some people from a local scooter club for breakfast, little did I know, I would be the only one who made it there on an actual scooter :) I guess its a bit too cold for some people to ride. I had great holidays but tomorrow is back to work for me, I'm photographing a couple of basketball games :)

2012-01-08 18:16 SonjaM: That's dedication! And the picture has a nice European touch to it. In the motorcycle club that I frequent, nobody arrives on a bike (or scooter) from October to April at least, and we don't even get much snow and cold at the We(s)t Coast...
2012-01-01 20:40 Sergei Belski: As soon as I will start booking enough jobs in Florida or Hawaii we can move :)
2012-01-01 14:33 Tracy B!: Now I think that is a little too cold for scooting--we need to move somewhere warmer ;). Happy New Year!!!
