Calgary Transit’s downtown infrastructure took it on the chin during the record flooding over the last week.
Here are some photos I snapped of the damage and of the work being done to get things moving again.
I often wonder if most people who use Calgary’s light rail system notice the art that exists intrinsically all around them.
Well, there are six Calgarians who most certainly do. Flickr friends and photographers (above, from left) James Tworow, Linda M. Cunningham, Nathalie Babineau-Griffiths, Wanda Martin and Dave King, along with Ian Proctor (not present), share their visual insights from the newly opened west leg of Calgary’s LRT system.
Their photo exhibition, One Place, Six Perspectives, demonstrates the innate artistic richness of Calgary’s newest C-Train stations, which stretch 8.2 km westward from downtown.
Swing by for a look and you, too, will see how transit can be more than just trains, buses, bricks and mortar.
One Place, Six Perspectives takes place on the walls of Pages Books in Kensington until the end of April.
P.S.: The group’s photos are also available for sale.
