I have continued walking to work, photograph Calgary and the sights as I see them. It really does make the walk to work much more enjoyable to walk with a camera. When I walk with a camera I am much more aware of the view and the beauty around me. I would love to hear from you, are you enjoying the morning commute series, do you have a favourite spots to view Calgary from?

I have started to include some views of Calgary from the +15 walkways it has been so cold I have utilized the interior walkways to get to work! If you are not familiar with Calgary, a lot of the downtown buildings are connected to each other through a system of walkways 15 feet above ground, which means I can walk around downtown without going outside! Every new building built in the area must connect to the other around it. I read recently there are currently 59 bridges totalling 16 kilometres, each new building downtown will add to that! I love the mix of lights from the interior and exterior, with the reflections in the windows, and I am enjoying the street view from above, so don’t bee too surprised to see more of Calgary from inside looking out!

I hope you have had a good week, what do you do to keep the morning commute, if you have one, from being a repetitive journey that is easily forgotten?

Despite the cold, -18C one day, I continue to walk to work, but I have changed my walking route. During the week a different bridge each day.

Bill dropped me of close to downtown, and I have been meeting him at the end of the day, at the same place he dropped me off. The change of my daily walk caused confusion on one occasion, when I, so use to following the same route headed out with my mind full of work, and walked the wrong way! Thanking my lucky stars for the cellphone, I called Bill, and luckily he had his phone with him, so I was left standing on the street corner in the freezing cold for too long.

The walk to work has inspired the morning commute series. Sunrise this week will be just after 8 am, and if the skies are clear we will start to get light in the eastern sky as early as 7:30am. I am looking forward to watching and photographing the changing light over the next few weeks.

Does your daily routine inspire you? How do you inspire your creativity?

I returned to work; a busy week at the office, means less time for photograph I am afraid! The days are getting longer, there is a little more light visible in the sky during my walk into work and on the way home.  This week the light through the windows was the most fascinating.

My goal this week is daily posts on instagram, and a different route to and from the office to see what new views I can find.

 

This week…..

This week from my Instagram feed, the walk to work is rarely the same two days in a row! A couple of the images were posted for a photo-a-day photo challenge, a new word each day to inspire me. Click on the image to see the image in a large size.

Three of the four photos were taken and edited on my smartphone. With the 30 minute walk to work each day I am finding it much harder and harder to carry my camera with me.  I have found I am able to edit my photos using the tools provided in the gallery or photo app.  Then recently I decided to download the Lightroom Mobile app, and over the week I have been taking a little time to learn the features, wonderful! Loving it!

I hope you are enjoying your week, I would love to hear from you, has your routine changed lately, how has your photography adapting to that change.
