Recently I was asked by CBC Calgary to do a piece on the design and architecture of houses in Calgary. In the process of looking at my library of photos I discovered a bunch of fun, fun and quirky fences.
I then contacted David Peyto (regular readers may remember he is attempting to walk every street in Calgary, as of April 9, 2017 he had completed 452 walks covering 3,600 km) to see what he might have in his library of photos. Soon my phone was buzzing like crazy in my back pocket (I kinda liked it) as Peyto’s images kept coming in.
I immediately thought this would make a fun photo essay. So here it is.
