Prairie Barn

Best of Black & White 2015

I’ve done more black and white this year than I’ve done in a long time. These were al shot this year and I chose them as my best of the year. In no particular order.

Simmons Building – Wandering around downtown Calgary, I had to get a shot of a new Icon of redevelopment in the East Village.
