July Photo Fun ~ Low Angle

The Deane House

Named after Captain Richard Burton Deane, Fort Calgary's last serving NWMP Superintendent, the Deane House is the only NWMP building remaining in Calgary. Captain Deane built the house in 1906 upon his wife’s refusal to live in barracks. It was originally built on the west side of the site near 6th St. S.E. In 1914, the Deane House was purchased by the Grand Trunk Railway and moved to a new location to serve as the office and Station Master’s house, sparing it from demolition – the fate of all the other Fort buildings. In 1929 it was moved once more, this time across the Elbow River where it exists today along 9th Avenue.

The Hunt House


The Hunt House is one of the oldest buildings in Alberta and is one of the few remaining structural reminders of the presence and significance of the Hudson's Bay Company in the province. The Hunt House is one of less than 25 extant buildings in Alberta constructed prior to 1882 and is also Calgary's oldest building on its original site. It remains one of only three H.B.C. buildings still standing in the province and thus provides a vital historic connection to the company that established so much of the early economy, transportation network, and social life of what would become Alberta. The building original log frame remains, although it is now hidden behind shingles. The style of the original log building expresses a rare form of construction: unlike many H.B.C. buildings, the Hunt House did not employ post-on-sill construction, but rather the dovetail corner method typical of southern Alberta and expressive of American cultural influences.

July Photo Fun Challenge ~ Fruit

July 4th

Ohh!! Fresh Fruit is better than candy!!!


Summer Photography Challenge ~ Airbound

Ok, so now I do think that "Airbound" in the "Summer Photography Challenge" would probably reference running away on holidays.  But because I am not running away until the end of July, I am going to "Airbound" in a different way.

I have been having great fun practising photographing birds ... and they are "Airbound", arent they!! LoL 😊


Swallows catching bugs and heading back to their nests to feed the babies!!

June Daily Photo Fun ~ Stripe

Ok, took me awhile to come up with this one ... but love the stripes wore into this rock.


The Horse

I love these sculptures ... you see something new in them every time I go by.


THE HORSE

Historically, the horses in New France had royal beginnings, as the first ones came directly from the stables of King Louis XIV in 1665.

The progeny of these became the source of energy for farming, lumbering, mining and transportation.
By the late 19th century, as the nation expanded, many horses were brought West by train to make possible the turning of prairie into farmland and forest into lumber.

“DO RE MI FA SOL LA SI DO” conjures up the untold story of the horse’s contribution to the building of the nation.
