The Bow River

The Bow River flows through Calgary and is bordered by paths, parks and green spaces. These are always full of people enjoying the the warm summer days. Soon rafters will be floating on the water and enjoying the city from a different point of view.

City Hawk

As I walked through a parking lot along the railway tracks I could hear the hawk call. Soon he came into sight flying circles above me around the noon hour sun. I don’t see hawks very often near the down town office towers although there is plenty for them to hunt.

Country Road

As a family we love to drive out of the city into the countryside. The main country roads you drive with other traffic behind you and coming towards you. Everyone is traveling at 100 Kilometers an hour. The views are amazing as the green fills the field and the sun moves across the land chasing the shadows of the clouds. Then I turned down a gravel road. with no one on it except me and then the best thing happened I pulled over by a little creek, turned off the car and we rolled down our windows. The cool breeze blew the stale air out of the car. the smell was amazing and we listened to all the sounds nature was making. We all could feel our souls recharging. Why don’t we do this more often?

 

Dad

A prized possession for me, a proud Dad. An envelope with my name in my childs handwriting and a little heart . I don’t need much for Father’s Day, spending time with my child is the best gift I could ask for.

View to the Sky

Parked on the street waiting for someone to return to the car. I look around at whats going on outside the car. I then open the sunroof and look up. I watch the clouds drift by the tall apartment building with the almost never ending balconies. A cool breeze the shade of the building. Very relaxing. I brought out my camera and made an image of this view to the sky.

Shadows

I like shapes created by shadows or the lack of light. This shape created by the shadow drew me to this wall. As I got closer the texture of the concrete really stood out. I created a few images and was able to capture what I saw as I was standing in front of this wall.
