I recently had the chance to ascend the Calgary Tower for the third time in my life. When it was constructed in 1967, the Calgary Tower was more than double the height of the tallest building in the city. It remained the tallest structure in Calgary until 1983 when the Petro-Canada Centre was constructed.
Today, many tall buildings surpass the height of the Calgary Tower, to the extent where it’s not even visible anymore in some views of the city skyline. While the Calgary Tower is no longer the tallest structure in the city, it still offers some of the best views. Continue reading
My late Uncle Walter was an avid collector of antiques, which my family has now inherited. He had many different kinds of antiques, including tools, furniture, collectables, toys, and household items in a storage locker.

Back in September, I travelled to Nanton which is about an hour outside Calgary. This is a small, friendly town known for a wide selection of antiques, an air space museum, and other knick knacks.
The antiques made me think of my uncle Walter, since he always collected them and took me to antique stores whenever he visited. I texted him telling him where I was, and he replied saying he looked forward to my next visit to his house in North Carolina. Little did I know, this is the last thing he would ever say to me. He passed away 4 days later.
Enjoy these photos of Nanton which I believe demonstrate the quintessential beauty of rural Alberta. Continue reading
One of the tourist attractions in Calgary is Heritage Park. Over the past 2 summers, I took several photos that I’d like to share. Most of the park is now closed for the winter. Continue reading
It’s been over a year since I moved to the Lincoln Park neighbourhood in Southwest Calgary. Continue reading
Minutes before sunset one day, I decided to check out Sandy Beach Park which isn’t too far from my house. Continue reading
I think this is the first time I’ve been able to do a winter post. Owning a car now means I have the mobility to see all parts of the city that aren’t easily accessible by transit.
I hope you enjoy my selection of images captured at various parks over the past several months.
Calgary is full of dog owners who are out at all times of the year. Continue reading
