As much as I love the natural splender of Banff, from an architectural point of view, the Banff Springs hotel is quite something. This glass-walled room in particular is incredible!

I was lucky enough to be in Banff for meetings this past week, and I had a bit of time for some photography. The views from the Banff Springs Hotel are incredible.

In my mind, there aren’t many things as bleak as modern architecture on a cold day, a space normally full of people, empty except for one figure, back turned, anonymous.

Since this is the final weekend for The Alexander Showcase Theatre’s production of A Christmas Carol, I thought it was a good time for one more image from that show. It is a challenge to play a character playing another character, but Seth Mukamal (pictured below) who plays Scrooge brings the energy required to pull it off.
One of image from Taylor Creek, on the roll of Tri-X pushed to EI 3200. Again I am suprised at how little grain is apparent, although the subject matter probably helps!
