Another Calgary Bridge

Today’s post is a variation on a theme/follow-up to yesterday’s post: the same city (Calgary), the same rainy day, and another bridge and pedestrian.

Rainy Day Bridge

The Peace Bridge, in Calgary, on a rainy Sunday morning during my recent trip. Shot on Lomo 400 colour film, converted to black and white in post. Shot on my Hasselblad 500C/M with 50mm/4 Distagon lens, then cropped.

Two Bridges

Recently on a business trip to Lethbridge, Alberta I had a bit of time to do some photography, so here are two bridges I like: one is the famous (and huge) railway trestle bridge, and the other is a small bridge in a park close to my hotel.

Right Place, Right Time

I was in Riverdale Park, Toronto recently on the footbridge that crosses the DVP, and saw this person out walking two dogs. Only had a moment to get the symmetry lined up, to the extent I was able to.

Coat of Arms

OK, so I am the last person on earth to start watching Game of Thrones (hey, photography takes up a lot of time!) so when I was at the old Eastern Avenue Bridge last weekend, a couple of times some of the structure reminded me of coats of arms.

Eastern Avenue Bridge #1

I recently went back to the remnants of the old Eastern Avenue bridge in the lower Don Valley. The intersecting jumble of old steel caught my eye.

A Hole in the Fence

A hole in a fence made it easy to check out this disused railway bridge in the lower Don Valley yesterday.

Near a condo development in the west end I found this interesting pedestrian bridge close the the lake.

A Bridge Not Too Far

Recently I visited my good friends Rob and Katherine in Guelph Ontario, and they took me to see a covered bridge that I didn’t know about. A lovely and fascinating structure with a lot of photographic possibilities. Both images were taken with my Nikon F4S 35mm SLR with a 28mm/2.8 Nikkor lens.
