Alberta Legislature Building

Alberta Legislature Building

The Alberta Legislature is found in Edmonton. According to Wikipedia, “The Alberta Legislature Building was built between 1907 and 1913 in the Beaux Arts style at the same time as the much larger Saskatchewan and Manitoba legislative buildings by architects Allan Merrick Jeffers and Richard Blakey. Montreal architect Percy Nobbs helped with the final revisions.”

Recaptured Life

Recaptured Life

The house is abandoned and you can see from the open window right through the house to the open door.

It is weathered and worn while nature in its greenery has started to grow back and recapture life in the prairies. In fact, I think clover has started to grow in the recesses of the wood.

Onwards We Go

There comes a time in our journey when we must face the decision to go over the bridge or turn back and choose another direction. It is time to go over the bridge into the future. Here we go onwards on the path of life.

This is the bridge in the Japanese Gardens in Queen Elizabeth Park in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Bloedel Roof

This is a black and white photograph I took of the roof of Bloedel Conservatory found at Queen Elizabeth Park in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

I like the geometric design in the roof which is complimented by the plant life.

According to the Vancouver Parks and Recreation website: “More than 120 free-flying exotic birds, 500 exotic plants and flowers thrive within its temperature-controlled environment.”

Working It Out

Working It Out

There is something beautiful about architecture and the way a building needs a solid foundation in order to grow onwards and upwards. I have called this photograph “Working It Out” because you start your problems from the base and only then can look upwards.

This is by the bridges of Tempe, near Phoenix, Arizona, USA at sunset. There is a river in the foreground.

This is an actual sunset in Tempe, Arizona, USA. There is a modern-style bridge in front of a crane for a new build. It is at the Tempe Town Lake. You can actually see two men in the upper-right hand working up high in the sky.

These architectural structures are above the pedestrian walkway on Stephen Avenue in Calgary.

According to a Downtown Calgary website, “Stephen Avenue Walk is a beautiful outdoor pedestrian walkway in the heart of downtown Calgary from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm, 7 days per week. It’s steeped in heritage, and lined with fabulous restaurants and retail shops.”

Chicago Skyline

Chicago Skyline

This is a photograph I took of the view of the Chicago Skyline from the south shore. In the middle of the picture you see “the tallest building in the city and it is the 108-story Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower), which rises 1,451 feet (442 m) in the Chicago Loop and was completed in 1974.”

Red Old Barn

“Many years ago, choices for paints, sealers and other building materials did not exist. Farmers had to be resourceful in finding or making a paint that would protect and seal the wood on their barns. Hundreds of years ago, many farmers would seal their barns with linseed oil, which is an orange-colored oil derived from the seeds of the flax plant. To this oil, they would add a variety of things, most often milk and lime, but also ferrous oxide, or rust. Rust was plentiful on farms and because it killed fungi and mosses that might grow on barns, was very effective as a sealant. It turned the mixture red in color.

When paint became more available, many people chose red paint for their barns in honor of tradition.”   This information was provided by the Farmer’s Almanac.
