Saddledome

Well it’s that time of year again that all the hockey fans have been waiting for! The NHL preseason has started the real games are just around the corner.

So Cold in Calgary

I took this picture just over a week ago. It was a pretty cold night and rather late when I decided to head out. Even though I wore the appropriate layers, an extremely warm winter jacket, winter hat and 2 pairs of gloves, it was still freezing! I believe the temperature was around 0 degrees! …

On Saturday a friend of mine and I met up downtown for a street photography mission. We started walking up 8th Avenue shooting random photos of people walking by and interesting things we saw.
