Peace Bridge – A New Calgary Icon – heath ofee dot com

This past Saturday afternoon the newly finished Peace Bridge in Calgary had its official opening. The Santiago Calatrava designed pedestrian bridge has been a number of years in the making, and its construction was wrought with controversy over missed timelines and budget issues. The city still seems split; some love it while others feel it was a great big waste of money (~25 million). Me? I think its gonna make for some great photographs, and below is the first of what I’m sure will be many studies of this interesting new icon.

  1. Wow, that is a pretty awesome looking bridge! It looks to be in an interesting place though…is it more of a neighborhood? IN which case, it does seem like a lot of money for something other than a busy downtown area.

    Very cool shots though Heath, you’re gonna have fun with it 🙂

  2. Wow, cool looking bridge. I’m guessing it will make for some nice night time long exposures. I really like that first shot of it disappearing into the fog.

  3. Having never seen this before, I recently had a dream about a Canadian bridge similar to this one, but is spanned an entire Great Lake….

    Hmm…this is too weird.
