I love old buildings. The skill of the trades that built then are amazing. The sandstone detail work on the building had me looking for a while. Jost the detail in the multiple arches would have taken some time to complete. Each brick is carved to meet the next and so on. Just wonderfull.
I was leaving a building at the end of the day. I took the stairs instead of the elevator. That decision brought me to this scene. The sun setting behind these tall trees all neatly framed by this window in the stairwell. I stopped and watched for a while the made an image. What a view.
During back to school shopping i found lots of interesting subjects. I really liked the zig zag lines formed by a table full of binders. I got some strange looks as I created this image but I also got a great image. It was worth the looks.
The lines of a building backlit by the sun. Looking at the shape the architect wanted me to see. bold lines, mirrored shapes. This is what is pleasing to my eye.
A cold rainy fall day. The people move quickly through the raindrops. The fall colours reflect in the puddles. The chill in the air reminds me that winter is not far away.
The iconic Calgary Tower is certainly the dominating part of this image although there are other gems to be found. The great reflection of the right of the building on the left. The beautiful Palliser Hotel in the center of the image. It is one of the oldest and grandest hotels in Calgary. The red in the tower mirrored in the red brake lights of the traffic. Sometimes I create an image for one reason but when I process it I see all these other reasons that drew me to this image but I didn’t know it at the time.
I was at the dog park as the sun was setting with my Brother and his dog Juno. We just stood and watch as the clouds changed colours in the setting sun and the crows flew to Nose Hill to roast for the night.
This road will take you to fall. The leaves litter the road and the sun highlights the yellow fall colours. It is a quiet road and that is a great way to have it. A quiet place to just enjoy the surroundings.
Another early morning drop off of the car at the tire store. No one around at all. Sort of eerie and sort of amazing.
A dark alley dimly lit. The signatures of those that have come and gone. Soon to be painted over so the next visitor can spray his name on this wall.
