Some street art applied to the abutment of the bridge linking Prince’s Island with the Calgary Curling Club.
From the beginning of June, when the figures in the sculpture called Conversation outside the Hudson’s Bay department store in downtown Calgary were fitted with face masks. Seeing how those two can’t really keep a proper physical distance, face coverings seemed to suit their needs.
Happy 153rd birthday, Canada! To all my fellow Canucks out there, please enjoy the holiday and celebrate safely.
I had intended to take a short break from the blog for a few days during my last vacation this winter. The days stretched into weeks as things got busy when I returned to work. Then, the weeks stretched into months as we all tried to get used to our new “normal” brought to us by COVID-19.
Today marks what it meant to be a return to regular posting here. There are loads of pictures from the “before times” I have yet to share. Some of the more recent ones — many from that aforementioned vacation and through the start of the pandemic — I haven’t even edited yet, so that’s on the to-do list.
And there might even be the occasional word or two, should the circumstances demand it.
As always, thank you for dropping by this space. Wishing you all well, wherever you are!
This is a quick smartphone snap from down on Stephen Avenue in downtown Calgary, just minutes into 2020. This is a pedestrian-only area during the day but normally open to cars after 6 p.m. In the small hours of January 1, 2020, the people of Calgary had clearly decided otherwise.
