Welcome To My City


posted on 15th of august, 2016

Whenever I say I’m from Canada, people ask three questions: Am I from Toronto, Vancouver or do I speak French (meaning am I from Quebec). Neither A, B, or C are correct actually and when I say where I’m from, 99.9% (ok, maybe 90%) of people have never heard of it.
I live in a city called Edmonton, capital of Alberta, population under a million, which for many is a small town. But my city is lovely and we are continuing to change. We have many wonderful festivals (most in the summer as people seem to never go out during winter), a beautiful river valley and lots of other things to see.

Photographing Edmonton: The Best Places To Go


posted on 24th of august, 2016

One of the first things that people notice about Edmonton is that it’s a small city, but it’s spread out like butter on a hot piece of toast. If you catch the airport bus in (#747, $5) you’ll see that it takes a few minutes to get into where the city basically starts, and then you have to hop on another train. Forget suburbia, unless you like Walmart, The Olive Garden and have a car to drive around, there’s not much to do. The major action in Edmonton (and also the best picture taking spots) are located within a 100 block radius that stems out from the city’s core.
Within this space there is West Edmonton Mall (which was once the world’s largest, but not anymore), the zoo (which is good if you have kids), Telus World of Science (same as the zoo), the museum (which is currently closed until...

About me

Hi, thanks for stopping by! My name is Angela from Edmonton and somedays I work as a travel photographer picking up a few odds and ends on the side. I love people and visiting new places and have a long list of things I want to see. If you could drop me a line when you buy my photos and let me know where they are being used, it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much.
