The opera house in Copenhagen is such an imposing sight. This was snapped during my August 2014 visit to northern Europe.

In-spiring view

From a brief visit to Hamburg almost three years ago … this is the clock tower at St. Michael’s Lutheran Church. I can tell you it’s a long climb to the top — great cardio exercise at the very least, rewarded with nice views if you like that sort of thing.

Calgary, Alberta, Canada

One of the more fascinating things for me at the recently wrapped Calgary Stampede was to hang out at the historical exhibits in the Western Oasis at the BMO Centre. Tucked away in the far corner of the exhibition hall was a display of historical photos and old maps, including this one showing Rouleauville, which we know today as Calgary’s Mission neighbourhood.

A wider view of By the Banks of the Bow, a public art installation at Calgary’s Stampede Park. Good to see people embracing this sculpture, literally and metaphorically. Here’s the tighter visual from a few days ago.
