It's hard to believe a year has passed since I began my 52 project, but it has and the closing image takes me right back to the opening one, the Calgary Skyline. A year ago my opening shot was taken fom the north of the city, tonight I made a shot of the Calgary skyline from the south east, I'd saved this one for some time after scouting the location using google maps. As we said goodbye to Mark, Hayley and Ethan at the airport I told Ethan I was going to make an image of the Saddledome for him. Sarah and I drove there in 20 minutes from the airport and I knew on arrival that we were in the right place. The lovely sweeping curve of the stadium is reflected by the opposite arch on the bridge nearby and the tower and downtown area in the background complete the image perfectly. It's a great way to close out the 52 project, I never missed a week or posted late, I tried new techniques and refreshed some old ones and I made some half decent images along the way. The 52 has been a great thing to do and to enjoy, you can see the whole gallery here.
