For this installment of reviewing the G+ photo walk I went on earlier this year, I thought I would experiment a bit with some post-processing. Here's some of the results of some colour adjustments as well as some black and white conversions using a combination of Aperture and OnOne's Perfect Photo Suite.

It's been a while since we posted any photography, so I went back into the archives to see where I was at. Please bear with me as we play a little catch up with some of the backlog in my personal projects. It's pretty amazing how much time gets drained with a new baby in the house. :)

One of the newest additions to Calgary's skyline is the the new Bow Tower downtown. It's such a prominent and modern new building that you just can't help but take a shot or two while downtown.

Join the Donation Drive!

It's time once again for the Real World Hero annual donation campaign! This is a charity drive by players of the MMORPG City of Heroes.

Despite the impending end of our amazing game world, the always hard-working Wentworths have put together a number of events to help benefit four charities – Child's Play, Donate Games, Operation Gratitude, and Heifer International.

As a part of this, they're also running an auction until this Saturday night (November 10th) with a variety of items, including City of Heroes merchandise, comic art, collectables, and a number of hand-crafted items.

As we did last year, once again I am donating one of my photography art prints to their cause. Check out their auction page to see what's available and place your bids!

We continue with the third part of my photos from the Calgary Google Plus Photo Walk. This is some of the architecture of downtown Calgary as we made our way into the core.

We're greeted on the Centre Street Bridge with a helpful pointer to the iconic Calgary Tower.

Then we passed through the gates guarded by the stone lions on the four corners of the Centre Street Bridge.

The view from the bridge itself is great – it's a shame the heavy rainfall we had in the weeks prior to the walk had really stirred up the sediment in the river, making it look quite murky.

And I'll close out this post with a shot of the bridge itself.

A little late on this post for the 'In the Garden' theme. We recently had some landscaping done and while the new plants didn't look like they were faring too well, we're starting to see some new growth now that they've had a bit more time to take root.
