A game painted onto the pavement of a pathway at Rotary Park in Calgary.
Part of a sculpture known as The Family of Man, outside the former headquarters of the Calgary Board of Education in the city centre.
This is the second home for The Family of Man, with its second name. This piece of art was first called Brotherhood of Mankind, and it was originally part of the British pavilion at Expo 67 in Montreal.
The heart of Calgary’s central business district during the blue hour, seen a few days ago. Clockwise from top right: The Bow office building, the double towers of the Suncor Energy Centre, Brookfield Place, Hanover Place (not one of the tall towers, however) and the under-construction Telus Sky.
Also: wide-angle lenses are fun.
This clock outside the Hudson’s Bay department store in downtown Calgary is the physical embodiment of that joke about a broken clock being right twice a day: In this spot, it’s always 3:26. (Until they fix the clock, that is.)
Last year, the Cathedral Church of the Redeemer in downtown Calgary began displaying thousands of knitted poppies to commemorate Remembrance Day. They are back this year.
Each was hand-knitted or crocheted by Calgarians and people elsewhere around the world, in memory of our those who fell in service of Canada and our rights and freedoms.
We will always remember.
Van Gogh Observes, a sculpture by the late Canadian artist Joe Fafard, is installed outside an art gallery along 4th Street S.W. in Calgary.
From afar, the shadows in the work struck me as being a little odd, so I walked up to it for a closer look. Imagine my surprise when I figured out what was going on!
