I have lived here for a long time now and the skyline has changed a lot during that time. I never tire of walking down by the Bow River in the evening. I enjoy the quiet walk, as well as the view, if it isn’t too windy, I never tire of watching the sky or finding a new way to frame an image.

I remember a time when the Calgary tower was visible from everywhere in the city, today it is peaking out between the buildings if you can see it at all. I framed the image tightly, as  it seems to me that the downtown has filled up with office towers, with the Calgary Tower peaking out, and the Centre St. Bridge lighting the way into the downtown.

Alcazar de Sevilla; Monochrome Madness

I loved visiting the Alcazar, in Seville. The moorish architecture filled with lines, patterns, intricately carved stone, and lots of doorways that almost line up! So many things catch my eye and I could sit and study for hours. The gardens are wonderful to just sit and enjoy the quite.  The architecture lends itself to monochrome images, removing the colour simplifies the image and amplifies the line and pattern.
