“Colourful Calgary Evening”
Once the colours of the sunset died down (earlier than I had hoped) I changed my camera setting in hopes of catching some light trails from the highway traffic. Unfortunately the wind picked up enough to shake my camera a little, so the city lights are a little messy (though it does make them easier to see in the photo) That could also be the reason for the wavy light trails. I did a bunch of work patching the holes in the lines, where the camera stopped for a second to record the image before taking the next shot.
I like this version better (see previous photo) because it’s more interesting, and the colours are a nice match between ground and sky.

Mercury Marquis | Calgary, Alberta

This gentleman in a large Mercury Marquis parked beside me at a local store.  I mentioned to him that I like his old car.  He said, “It’s not old.  It is a 1972.”  I thought his response was clever & amusing.  He let me take a quick portrait.
