Cecilia – Writing in Cosmopolitan Calgary

I ran into Cecilia at one of my favourite photo spots in the city, Crescent Road at the top of McHugh Bluff Park. I had just arrived there and got all my stuff ready to go when I saw Cecilia walking towards me. I said to my self, “this girl looks like the prefect candidate”. I walked over to her and told her what I was up to and if she was interested in participating, clearly she was and I couldn’t have been happier. I love it when the first person I ask says yes :).

Rob: Did you say writing? 

Cecilia: Ya.

Rob: Oh your a writer! 

Cecilia: I am :).

Rob: Oh that’s awesome! So have you had anything published yet?

Cecilia: No not yet, I write short films. 

Rob: Oh no way, that’s cool! Any where we can find you yet? 

Cecilia: Not yet! I’m still in college, so I’m working on it. 

Rob: Oh that’s cool, good for you. What’s your last name? I’m gonna keep an eye out for you.

Cecilia: Wright.

Rob: Alright cool. 

5. If you had to describe Calgary to some one, what would you say?
Energetic. . . And energy, because you know, downtown and all that. It’s just growing and young, there’s just so much here. 

6. Have you ever ridden a horse?
I have :).

Thank you for taking the time to talk to me Cecilia! Keep being so nice and all the best with your writing! ;).

A Burst of Color

Here is another shot from the streets of Calgary. This girl just stood out to me because of her cool sweater. She was a burst of color in a sea of regular jackets and hoodies. I don’t know who makes that sweater, but it’s great!

Note: This photo was shot at f2 with a Canon 135mm L. The picture was cropped and would have had better bokeh if I was closer to the subject.

I will be hitting the streets again tonight to try and find another stranger to talk to about Calgary. Hopefully it goes as well as it did last time 🙂
