The Old Firehall

The Old Firehall

 

Although I’m still posting images for Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photo Walk, and will be for a bit longer, the posts this week are all images which include fellow participants of the Calgary, Kensington walk.

The City has turned the area at 10th Street and Memorial Drive NW into something called Poppy Plaza. It seems fitting with the ideas of a memorial on Memorial Drive. They have created a open and usable public space on both sides of the north side of the Louise Bridge, with a walkway under the bridge. The old Fire Hall was converted into a City of Calgary Parks building.

One of the  photo walk participants was sitting at the top of the stairs looking for a new shot. I liked the warm light on the back of the brick building and all of the leading lines.

You’re On The Wrong Side

You're On The Wrong Side

 

Although I’m still posting images for Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photo Walk, and will be for a bit longer, the posts this week are all images which include fellow participants of the Calgary, Kensington walk.

I was walking with Gudrun, the group leader up the west side of 10th Street NW. We were informed that we were on the wrong side. Gudrun replied the better light was on that side.

Let The Light Shine

Let The Light Shine

 

In the last light of the day, the lights start coming on on Kensington Road in Calgary. The Worldwide Photo Walk was just wrapping up. I looked up just as this light came on. The lamp was almost silhouetted against the sky and I liked how I caught a bit of reflection in the window.

Wind Blown Grass

Wind Blown Grass

 

With the wind blowing down the river on the day of the Worldwide Photo Walk in Calgary, Kensington, it made me wonder how to show the movement from the breeze. So, I set the ISO to the lowest setting and cranked the aperture down to the smallest opening f/22, which gave me a shutter speed of 1/30th of a second. This was enough to catch the grass heads doing the dip.

Autumn Storm

When outside taking pictures, there’s always something on my mind. That is, keep an eye on the weather. I looked to the east from the Peace Bridge on the Worldwide Photo Walk with Gudrun, shot this frame out the opening. It shows a storm blowing up to the east of Calgary, which , thankfully, kept moving to the southeast.

In the best light…
