Twelve Images of the Lethbridge Japanese Garden

Recently while on my most recent business trip to Lethbridge, Alberta I went back to the Japanese Garden, this time with my Hasselblad 500C/M. It is a lovely spot, an oasis of calm.

The Hasseblad shoots twelve images per roll, and so I’ve decided to post one complete roll here; it’s rare that I am happy with all the images on a single roll. This film in this case is Kodak Portra 400.

Two Bridges

Recently on a business trip to Lethbridge, Alberta I had a bit of time to do some photography, so here are two bridges I like: one is the famous (and huge) railway trestle bridge, and the other is a small bridge in a park close to my hotel.

Framing Trees

Back to Lethbridge Alberta: I love frames within a photograph, and the way these trees on either side framed the more distant view was very appealing to me when I saw it.

The Silence of Snow and Ice

This image was taken in a park in Lethbridge, Alberta on a Sunday morning in my recent trip out west. The trees were covered in a frost from a combination of fog and very low temperatures. There was no wind, and the sky was softly overcast. The silence was lovely.

At the Bridge

The railway bridge in Lethbridge, Alberta is quite iconic, and it was interesting to look at it through a gazebo-shaped look-out at the top of a hill.

Large and Small

Here is another image from Lethbridge: the large trestle bridge in the background, the humble pedestrian bridge in the foreground. I found the juxtaposition interesting.

This week I am on a business trip in Lethbridge, Alberta. It’s a busy week, but I did have a little bit of time for some photography (digital and film) last evening, so I headed down to a park underneath the Lethbridge Viaduct railway bridge, on of the iconic sites in the city. As an icon, it has been extensively photographed, so I tried to avoid the iconic compositions 🙂
