|One of many artistic touches gracing |
the streets of downtown Calgary.
The sidewalks were splashed with colour from hanging baskets, store front flower beds, and planters separating the bike lane from the rest of the traffic. I found a quirky manhole cover along one of the rougher sections of the sidewalk, and there were sculptures on many street corners, from a working windmill adorned with metal birds to a copper tree growing from a cement crevice. The most impressive installation, though, was the full-sized antique train engine in front of the CP building on 9th Avenue, standing defiantly between the modern glass towers.
|Formal gardens and statuary.|
