It's been a little while since we've posted much on the blog, so I wanted to play catch up a little bit. For this installment of the photo walk summary, we take a look at some of Calgary's downtown architecture.
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.

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.
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.
