Sometimes, you have to improvise. Here, my rain jacket acts as a bean bag and the lens hood is repurposed to prop up my camera as I shoot last night’s fireworks at the Calgary Stampede. Below, one of the resulting photos.
One of the more fascinating things for me at the recently wrapped Calgary Stampede was to hang out at the historical exhibits in the Western Oasis at the BMO Centre. Tucked away in the far corner of the exhibition hall was a display of historical photos and old maps, including this one showing Rouleauville, which we know today as Calgary’s Mission neighbourhood.
A wider view of By the Banks of the Bow, a public art installation at Calgary’s Stampede Park. Good to see people embracing this sculpture, literally and metaphorically. Here’s the tighter visual from a few days ago.
