One of the things I like to do when flaneuring downtown Calgary is to “look up” at how the buildings meet Calgary’s bold blue sky. While much of the discussion around our downtown is negative these days, I found looking at these photos to be quite uplifting. I like to see the glass as being three quarters full, rather than a quarter empty when I am downtown.
In selecting what photo to choose for this tour, I was reminded that Calgary’s downtown has some pretty amazing architecture and urban design.
Hope you enjoy this fun “Looking Up!” tour of downtown Calgary. Be sure to scroll to the end as I think I saved the best for last!
So next time you are downtown, be it Calgary or any other city make sure you look up. You will be surprised at what you discover. Personally, I love the juxtaposition of the old and new, the patterns and reflections and the surrealist light you find in downtowns.
