Some beautiful hoar frost during a deep cold spell in Calgary earlier this winter.
This is the last photo I took of the little yellow house once belonging to Enoch Sales.
The building in Calgary’s Victoria Park neighbourhood, long in a state of disrepair, was the last remaining Queen Anne Revival-style home in the city. It had been slated to be part of an area revitalization project called the Rivers District.
The building burned in a two-alarm fire on Feb. 2, 2019, and was subsequently demolished.
When I came across this at a local shopping mall a few weeks ago, I could hardly believe this was, essentially, the result of a really fancy cake decoration. These are Marvel Comics characters Rocket and Groot having a friendly moment together, depicted in a creation as part of The Calgary Sugarcraft Guild‘s annual competition at North Hill Centre last month.
