From last fall, a rewarding view of downtown Calgary from the upper section of Edworthy Park in Wildwood. I could have got there the easy way, by driving over and parking in the lot by the dog run. Instead, I took the bus to the Parkdale side of the park for a nice afternoon urban hike.
A few of my friends are visiting Paris at the moment … and I’m itching to get back one day for a proper visit. This is a view of the Place du Trocadéro, foreground, with the skyscrapers of La Défense off in the distance as they appeared in late 2012. If I recall correctly, this view is from the Eiffel Tower.
Let’s wind back the clock a decade and visit with this skyline of Calgary from January 2008, seen from the bridge connecting Inglewood to the zoo. The city has changed so much in 10 years. No only are there a few more skyscrapers in the middle and toward the left of this scene, the bridge I stood on to take this photo has since been taken apart and replaced.
