My friend Neil Zeller has been putting on a Photowalk for the past few years around his Birthday to celebrate with friends and to meet new people. The Photowalk this year was another great success. You can follow Neil all over on Social Media. His Facebook Page or Instagram, for examples.

I Gotta Be

I Gotta Be

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.

At the street level of Poppy Plaza, the word Memorial is placed in 2 metre high welded steel letters. Previously, I had isolated the word “or”. When I saw someone photographing this lady, whose first name started with the letter M, I recognized the word “me” would make an interesting image.

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.
