Fifty years and running, the Calgary
Marathon was huge this year with runners, walkers, cyclists, and
wheelchair users. I hung around the lower deck of Centre Street Bridge
and shot the participants. Sounds of drums and bagpipes drew me to
Riverfront Avenue. On one side of the road Chinese dancers and drummers
where high-fiving passing runners. Closer to the bridge the Cochrane
Pipe Band were also encouraging runners. People were encouraged
to dress in time period costumes. I saw three women dressed in
50s-style crinoline skirts. Some people just dressed in costumes. I
spotted a few supermen/women, one Dr Frankenstein, a cowgirl, a
(I think), and a big brown dog.
Also discovered a way to make photos really come alive with Nik Color Efex.
