Hudson’s Bay recently announced that Zellers is coming back in the form of pop-up stores, and an online store.
You can see my photos of Zellers when it largely closed back in 2012. I also did a photo essay when Target left Canada.
On January 18, 2023, I was interviewed by CBC Radio’s The Homestretch in Calgary to talk about my photos of the Zellers closure, the sign I took, and what I think of the new stores opening.
Although I have lived in Calgary for almost 14 years, I have never visited Vancouver. I decided to take the short flight to visit earlier this month.
In this post, which is my first in quite a while, I’d like to share my favourite photos from the short trip. Enjoy!
Even with a big fireworks show and drive through events for food, the 2020 edition of the Calgary Stampede wasn’t the same.
In this post, I’d like to share some of my Stampede photos from past years as well as the fireworks show this year.
Fish Creek Provincial Park is the second largest urban park in Canada, and is contained entirely within the city of Calgary on the south side. It used to span the width of the city, but the city has since sprawled around it.
On bicycle, I can reach the park boundaries in just over an hour. I’ve been making the trip regularly since last summer, and can do so by staying mostly on paved pathways away from cars. This park is a key part of several 100 kilometre bike rides that I’ve done.
It’s now time to share some of my favourite photos!
I visited Las Vegas for the first time earlier this year for a quick long weekend trip. Many people I know in Calgary have already gone many times, so I’ve heard a lot.
Alberta’s Dinosaur Provincial Park is a UNESCO world heritage site located east of Calgary. It is known for its badlands topography and dinosaur fossils.
Like the Rocky Mountains and so many other attractions in Alberta, Dinosaur Provincial Park is a great place for natural landscape photography. It would be cool to view this park during various weather conditions, although the length of the drive prevents it from being a spur of the moment decision. Weather conditions, especially the best ones for photography, can change so rapidly.
Drumheller, which is actually a couple hours away, looks similar in places and is also known for dinosaurs.
I’d like to share my favourite photos from the visit. Enjoy!
Ribbon Creek Trail is an 8km trail west of Calgary in Kananaskis. I hiked it a while ago now, but forgot about the photos.
Here are a few of my favourite photos from the hike!
For my last Japan trip post, I’d like to share some of my favourite photos while sightseeing in Tokyo as well as a few from a Sumo wrestling match.
