View from Birch Avenue

Went with a friend to hike this past weekend in the town of Banff, nestled amongst the mountains in the national park bearing the same name. This is one of the splendid views along the Bow River from within the town.

Stephen Avenue

Historic Stephen Avenue in downtown Calgary had been a pedestrian-only zone during the day. Now, because of the COVID-19 pandemic and a desire to make the street more amenable to restaurant/bar patios, cars are not allowed pretty much all day long, except in the morning to allow for deliveries.

These are ribs of wood serving as decoration outside a commercial building in Calgary’s Inglewood neighbourhood. Their uneven, wavy edges create a neat visual effect if you look at this façade while passing by quickly in a car or bus.

Sky against the sky

Among the newest additions to Calgary’s skyline, Telus Sky is a mixed commercial-residential tower in downtown Calgary. Here, it is reflecting the late-evening sky a few weekends ago.

Nice evening for a wander

The evening sun does works its visual magic on the esthetics of the Peace Bridge in Calgary.
