Looking across the Prince’s Island Bridge to Calgary’s city centre, as seen at the beginning of August.
I almost walked past this neat photo opportunity on the Bow River Pathway in Calgary last week — an unexpected break in the trees giving a clear view of the river, the Centre Street Bridge and the city centre. It pays not to be in a rush, if at all possible!
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.
