Photographer's Note

Yet another view of these imposing sculptures in the CBD of Calgary city. Here, I've focussed on the reflection in the highrise building.

From Wikipedia:

"Stephen Avenue is a major pedestrian mall in downtown Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The mall is actually the portion of 8 Avenue SW between 4 Street SW and 1 Street SE. It is open to vehicles only from 6:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.

The street is known for its restaurants, high-end retail, and its pubs. Places to shop include Calgary Eaton Centre, TD Square, Bankers Hall, Scotia Centre, and The Bay.

The street is also home to downtown Calgary's major convention and exhibition facility, the Telus Convention Centre, and two hotels, the Hyatt Regency Calgary, which incorporates several historic buildings into its facade, and the Calgary Marriott.

Unlike 17 Avenue, Stephen Avenue is not regarded as a major night spot in the city, although there are night clubs located on the mall."
