Kingsburg - Paul Maybee

Kingsburg - Paul Maybee

This is a photo I took today in Kingsburg, NS of a fallen down fishing shack.  Inside there are old rotten lobster traps and floorboards.  I remember this collapsed building from my childhood, and I don’t if it’s changed much since then.  There’s something I find romantic about these old buildings that have been abandoned and forgotten, and I wonder what they were like when they were built.

Morning moonrise - Paul Maybee

Morning moonrise - Paul Maybee

This photo was taken on January 22nd on a very cold morning walking to work.  I had just begun to follow the moon’s pattern on a website called Time and date which is a fascinating website and shows the time the moon (and sun) rises, sets, how much of the moon is illuminated, weather, and any other information you could possibly want to know about a day.

This photo is a 1 second time lapse photo, f3.5 at 400 ISO for anyone who wants to know.  I just use trial and error to get good photos, and this one turned out to be something special.

goodnight!

Blue House, Ecuador 2002 - Paul Maybee

Blue House, Ecuador 2002 - Paul Maybee

This photo is of a house in Ecuador I took while there for 3 months in 2002.  I went there after my first year of University to stay with my brother, Dave, who lived there at the time.  This photo was taken in the South end of Quito city near where we lived.  It is near the clover-leaf traffic circle on the way out of town.  For more photos of my trip to Ecuador, visit my Flickr site.

Halifax Citadel

Halifax Citadel - Paul Maybee

I took a walk yesterday around the Citadel Hill in Halifax and took this series of photos.  It was such a warm sunny day that it almost feels like spring will be here eventually.

Pigeons

Pigeons in Flight - Paul Maybee

There is a grain elevator near where I live which caught my attention one day when I was out walking.  I decided to take my camera in there.  There’s always been something really creepy and interesting about old places like this.  I ended up photographing the pigeons flying around the place and decided this was the best way to put them together.
