When Canada wins a gold medal in the Olympics, Calgary lights up its Olympic flame for a short period (an hour or so I believe). The day before I shot these I saw the flame on from my bedroom window and thought I’d go out and shoot some photos that night. However after making plans to go with a friend he later informed me the flame was out and filled me in the details. So when I got home yesterday evening I saw that it was on again! I wasn’t going to miss it this time. As soon as that sun started going down I was out the door. It was FREEZING OUT, but it’s not often the opportunity arises to get a shot with the Calgary Tower lit up like it was 1988 (the year the Olympics were held here), so I’m happy I went.
