Through the passage Richelieu to the Louve, Paris France
We were walking to the Louve, this wasn’t our first visit, but it was the first time through the Passage Richelieu, and the sunlight off the glass pyramid was beautiful the shadows creating a graphic on the floor. The juxtaposition of old stone passage, with the modern glass pyramid, and another old building behind it, gives a sense of walking around Paris where old and new architecture sit so comfortably together.
Happy Tuesday to everyone, for my fellow Canadians I hope you had a great long weekend. It was great to have an extra day for family and friends, and to use it as needed. In Calgary we had great weather, so we got a little gardening done; some flowers, lettus, peas and tomatoes planted.
This image was taken last summer at the Minter Garden, Chilliwack BC, one of my favourite gardens, I believe it is about 32 acres and I would recommend a sunday visit.
with spring finally here I can hardly wait for the flowers to bloom. I am working through some old files, and finding some flower images to satisfy my needs for flowers! I love the red poppy. They are delicate, the color is rich, and they seem to dance with the slightest breeze.
For many in Calgary it might be a little early to start planning their Stampede activities, but for the many volunteers the work on this year’s stampede started last September. The schedule of events that will take place down at the grounds is jam-packed with activities. The midway will be filled with rides, this is one of my favourite places to visit.
This year the parade will be exiting, Astronaut Chis Hadfield will be Parade Marshall, and parade morning is always exciting. about 350,000 people line the parade route, and the parade is two hours long, one of my favourite days of the year! So with all this thought about Stampede I am exploring some of the old images taken in previous years and planning my visit to the stampede this year!
Walking downtown in the morning it is easy to hurry by the quiet beauty as we go about our business, but is was hard to miss the bright colourful LRT station on 6 St. SW. With the sun shining through the glass above it was wonderful.
I love the way the city planners, the architects and artists collaborate to bring beauty to our lives.

I participated in a postcard swap this spring, and received 5 great postcards, some did not have any info on how to connect the photographer artist. thanks so much to Shelly Shockley Jenny and Susan Nystrom.
