A neat assemblage of buildings (and one Plus 15 walkway) in downtown Calgary set against a pure blue sky, as seen a few days ago.
The Bow Building in downtown Calgary seen from a different angle — from my point of view anyhow. Here it is from its east side, flanked by the old downtown fire hall on the left and the North-West Travellers Building on the right. Tucked in behind bottom left is the new Telus Sky building, which is much taller than it appears here!
Just a few minutes from the King’s Cross/St. Pancras railway complex in London are the Coal Drop Yards, a former industrial area along the Regents Canal being remade for modern retail/leisure, near other new buildings housing offices and residential spaces. Here is one of the buildings, as it was about a year ago.
It was so disheartening to watch the news today and learn of the fire that engulfed the roof at Notre-Dame-de-Paris Cathedral. If there’s any good news to be had, it appears much of the structure remains intact and many of the historic artifacts and artwork were saved from the blaze.
I had the distinct pleasure of visiting the church in September 2012, as millions of visitors did yearly until today. I did not get the chance to scamper up to the top for a city view — next time, I thought then. With hope, this grand place of worship and one of Paris’s jewels will be rebuilt and reopen with renewed splendour.
