one last look.

here are the remaining shots of my walk through chinatown. the street festival i shot
is still to come, where some of these sights come alive with people, art, performers
and culture. i’m not sure which I’ll prefer in the end – the stoic quiet streets on a
bright weekday morning with just me and my camera in comfort and calm, or the chaos
of 40,000 people at a festival.

those will come later, though, as i take a hiatus from this neighbourhood and post more
from the summer, including a beautiful mountain wedding I am in the midst of editing,
amongst other things…

more chinatown.

…the second in a series on Calgary’s Chinatown.

Did you know that it is the second oldest Chinatown
in North America and that in 2010 it celebrated the
100th anniversary of its permanent settlement here?

 

a taste of chinatown.

Love makes a spot beautiful:
who chooses not to dwell in love, has he got wisdom?

a year of clicking pretty.

I learned to laugh and crawl,
then sit and stand,
and I can walk now
if you hold my hand.

But the fun has just begun.
Look out world, I’m turning one! 

this art has kept my hands steady while
the rest of my world shook.

…thank you for all the clicks my
friends. you are what makes this pretty.
here’s a collection of my absolute favorite
moments over the year…
