Take a Bow

Downtown Calgary is chock-full of midrise and highrise towers of varying styles, vintages, and aesthetic charm.

The Bow is one of those iconic structures that is just different from everything else around it. It’s taller, it’s oddly shaped, it catches light, it’s not a glass obelisk, and it has a cool sculpture at its base (Wonderland by Jaume Plensa). What more can a travelling geek with a camera ask for?

Getting back into the game

The past six weeks have been a complete blur. Between a pre-Christmas family vacation, Christmas itself, tons of business travel, not to mention the pressures of closing a quarter and starting a new one, I’ve had no time to sit down, gather my thoughts and write them down.

On a few occasions, I may have gathered them, but like marbles on an almost-flat table, they got away from me before I could do anything with them.

I’ve always intended this blog to be a visual journal of sorts, but without regular updates, it’s not much of anything. So here I go again. Back on the wagon. Some discipline and some regular posts. This time for real! I promise.

Despite all the travel, all the work, all the busy-ness, I have managed make a fair amount of photographs. Making photos is theraeutic to me and I never go anywhere without my camera. Even on the shortest business trip to the least exotic place imaginable. Because you never know.

Since the beginning of December, I’ve been to Calgary, Toronto (twice in the same week), Cancún, Montréal, Palm Springs and Calgary. With a few nights spent in my own bed at home, too.

Over the next few days and weeks, I’ll pull together some of the better shots from those trips. Stay tuned.
