“Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.” – Dorthea Lange

Coffee cup exposures is photography at its basics and fun.  Simple, enjoyable and thought provoking.  I have based this site on the simple concept of coffee that accompanies a time of memories with family and friends.


A bit about me

Hi all who look at my site!  I’m Jim, a committed coffee drinker, a Paramedic and EMS Educator with over 30 years experience and a family man for my loving wife and daughter.   As you can see this site is geared for my hobbies, hiking, and photography.   I do update sporadically but will be posting my favourite  pictures and have even included my YouTube post from a number of years ago.    I haven’t focused this site yet so bear with me as it goes through changes here and there, and I’ll keep posting pictures I like from my collection.

If you like something you see drop me a line and let me know.

Cheers All.

This video clip I took with a hand held video recorder while out on a river boat with my good friend.  This little stream is off the Smoky River in the Peace River area.  It was a little later in the spring and this stream wasn’t as high as it was a few days prior when Dustin navigated it.   And no we didn’t have a come-a-long to help.  Enjoy our adventure.

Autumn is here

So it’s this time of year, autumn. After the summer we’ve had it seems to be a welcome change, summer rain directly to autumn colours. The interesting part of this time of year is actually watching the changes. Through the spring the water fowl came to our neighbourhood and paired up and nested. The summer, …

Summer Curious

Summer, this year the weather has been less than summery. Starting off with a heat wave and fires in Northern Alberta, then changing to constant cloud and rain. How do we get or maintain enthusiasm for summer then? When the weather doesn’t cooperate then finding the curiosities of each change can help us find the …

Groundhog Day

So once again we have survived Groundhog Day. Anyone who knows me know it’s one of my favourite days of the year. A bunch of years ago I bought this little guy from Wiarton Ontario (home of Willie the weather prognosticator!!) So I position him in the window and snap a picture and look for …
