Chicken On The Way

Chicken On The Way

Chicken on the Way is a Calgary, Alberta, Canada landmark. The same family has been operating this location since 1958. I’ve been eating their chicken from just after I moved to Calgary in the 1970’s. The giant rooster, at the extreme right of the frame, stands facing Fourteenth Street North West. They still wrap your boxed order in brown paper using paper tape to seal it. The weather was rainy on this day’s visit, and it made the colors vibrant. The nice even overcast lighting brought light into the shadow areas and increased saturation. Don’t forget to try the Corn Fritters!

In the best light…
