The Calgary Maker Faire took place at East Village’s River Walk on Sept 8, 2012. It showcased the work, craft and artistry of local crafters,
makers, hackers, tinkerers, artists, authors, roboticists, hobbyists, science clubs and DIY enthusiasts. The faire’s mission was to entertain,
inform, connect, and inspire thousands of current and future makers in Calgary.

This is the first time I try shooting with a film camera since the early 1990’s. My first ever camera was a film camera and I loved it to bits but
sometimes I was disappointed for not getting the results I wanted and it was soon forgotten. Now I can remember the thrill of developing a roll and
having that tingly feeling of anticipation and surprise of seeing images you never got to review. That feeling alone made me want to try film again.
These were all taken with a Canon AE-1 using cheap fujifilm ASA 400.

Not only did I get a wonderful tour of Inglewood while doing the photo shoot but I also got to chat a bit with him over coffee. It’s great to see
someone so committed to the cultural growth of their city and their community.
A group of photographers from Calgary met up yesterday at Fort Calgary for a photo-walk. A few of us ended up walking around Inglewood and subsequently, and almost naturally, went into a pub.
At Fort Calgary, Oscar Lopez playing some pool.
They were setting up some weird stuff for a children’s event.
We kind of got bored and went outside. Had some fun with my wide-angle lens.
Calgary’s oldest house constructed in 1870 and still standing.
Record Land. One of the best, narrowest and most stocked vinyl record stores I’ve ever seen.
This business sells huge-ass Jesus Christ’s statues for all your religious decorative needs.
More vinyls: $1.95 for best-of-Elvis. Great deal!
This guy was parallel-walking across the street snapping photos of us every now and then.
He later introduced himself as Gregory Rogalsky. His many cameras hanging from his neck made me jealous.
David Austin just chillin there… because I told him to.
