It was a rainy morning today so I thought it would be nice to spend it at the Calgary Zoo taking photographs of animals.

2012-06-23 18:26 Maple: And I was wondering if you were able to get some shots of the penguins- and HELLO-There was one!! :D

Last week I had a pleasure to photograph for Alberta Dance Academy, they asked me to document a couple of their dance recitals. You can also see some photographs from last year's dance recitals, that I also photographed for them.

2012-06-23 17:47 Sergei Belski: Thank you very much Charles!
2012-06-22 09:28 Charles Chapman: I love these pictures, the joy and talent captured in these photos are great. This is the difference between a photographer and someone who just takes pictures, I take pictures but I am not a photographer. Great job.
2012-06-20 21:18 Sergei Belski: Thank you very much Vita!
2012-06-20 11:29 Violetta: nice work, Sergei! love the pictures!!!!

I took some students portraits for St. Mary's University College a few days ago.

When we were swimming in the evening we saw a few dolphins in the water with us, about 15 metres away :)

Yesterday was a pretty long day for us... we visited my sister for a day in Venice, Florida... it was great to see her and she took us to see a bunch of her favourite spots... Great to have a local tour guide :) The weather is still not the best, raining and cloudy pretty much all the time, I guess its not too hot this way.

Seeing any fin when swimming in the ocean is not the greatest feeling! Here we saw a bunch of dolphins catching fish, it was very interesting to see them do it!

I don't think my sister's little dog will win any awards for his looks but he is very cute and I really like him :)

After swimming it was raining so I left my big camera in the car and only brought my little wide angle GoPro... Of course at this point we saw an alligator and for the first time in my life I saw an armadillo. You should have seen how close I got to them to take some shots :)

At the end of the day we visited famous Siesta Beach in Sarasota, Florida... the sand was very very nice but I wasn't very impressed, I guess I just prefer smaller, more private beach.

2012-06-09 04:25 Tracy B!: Toss-up for fave pic between us in B&W (you look HOT), Napolean strutting for the camera, or the lone fin that could be deceiving ;).

For the last two days we were just relaxing at my parents house, swim, and walk on the beach... I mostly took a mini vacation from my camera :)

This morning we visited Clearwater Marine Aquarium, home of the dolphin from "Dolphin Tale" movie. It was interesting to see the dolphin in person, and everything else from the movie :) It was also nice to hear the real story of the dolphin.

Tracy and I are visiting my parents in Indian Rocks Beach, Florida. Today was just a relaxing day... we ate some nice food and my dad and I did some fishing... I'm still better than him at fishing!

2012-06-04 03:56 Sergei Belski: We caught some cat fish... we let them go.. they were too small :)
2012-06-03 21:58 Maple: I don't think you can bring him hom, Tracy. Sergei-what did you catch? A catfish? How'd you eat it?

Final day in Orlando... Today my parents joined us and we spent the day in Disney's Epcot. Very nice place with many interesting things to see :) It would be interesting to know how many kilometres we actually walked this week... I'm sure it was plenty :)

One park a day wasn't enough for us so we did two parks today :) We visited Universal Studios and Universal's Islands of Adventure, a very long day for us... so much walking, plus pouring rain all day!
