Urban landscapes encountering the crossing
PEDESTRIAN CROSSING, CALGARY, ALBERTA
I saw news media photos of this $13 million project, which safely ushers pedestrians across Macleod Trail to Chinook Centre shopping mall, shortly after it was unveiled in December, 2017 and decided to check it out for potential photos. I was quite unprepared for the stunning main entry on the east side of Macleod Trail. I spent more time photographing here than the rest of the crossing combined.
The entry is mostly monotone, so I decided to add me (and my red Calgary Stampeders coat) to the scene, then keep me in colour and convert the rest of the scene to black-and-white. I’ve used this processing technique before (see https://wp.me/p2ccTX-10P and https://wp.me/p2ccTX-10Y) and like the results.
