It was a quieter evening than usual on Thursday night at Calgary’s Olympic Plaza, typically home to the city’s new year’s eve celebrations. With the public health emergency still ongoing, there was no big party and no official fireworks display to ring in 2021. Seen here are some of the Christmas lights at Olympic Plaza in the foreground, with Calgary’s Historic City Hall in seasonal colours in the background.
Last year, I captured this Christmas display (from behind) in the door of a business in the Downtown Container Park in Las Vegas. Little did I know what kind of “oh, oh” we were all in for in the year to follow.
