This blog is dedicated to the good people that live in the city of Calgary, Alberta Canada. I moved to Calgary a year ago and before I moved here I had a lot of misconceptions about the city and the people that lived here. From the reputation of the city I had come to the conclusion that Calgary was a full on cowboy town filled with horse riding, cattle wrangling, Budwiser drinking country fokes all jammed together to make what appeared to be a city. Oh how I was wrong, and how happy to be wrong!
Since living in Calgary I have learned that the people who live here are really just like any where else in Canada/America. The whole cowboy town thing seems more of a tourism scheme than anything, except for Stampede time when loads of people dresses up like cowboys or a modern day Daisy Duke.
I work as a photographer, so I meet a lot of people and I have found that almost everyone I meet is actually from some where else. The lure of jobs and a better quality of life has done Calgary well. The city is made up of people from all over Canada and the US and to my pleasant surprise there seems to be a larger than expected African and Asian Canadian population here too.
So on with the blog, I hope you enjoy it and the people on here.
Thanks for reading, Rob
