weekly photo challenge : phoneography – my neighborhood

I’m afraid this challenge took me by surprise. I love using the camera on my iPhone, but my schedule didn’t allow for wandering the neighborhood today. Here are a couple of photos taken from my front steps – a murky view of downtown Calgary, including the Calgary Tower and our tallest office building – The Bow, and another shot taken right in front of our house. You can see a mom pulling a sleigh with her children in tow while their dog trots along. There is always activity in our park – people and dogs enjoying the wide open space (and off leash privileges.) It’s a beautiful park.

I’ve decided to just add to this post instead of posting again. Here are more phoneography photos of my neighborhood.  I went for a walk with my good friend, Catherine. We walked along the river and I took a rest on a snow covered bench.

Today was the kind of day that lets us believe that spring might actually arrive! Look at that blue sky – not photo shopped or adjusted in any way.
