I took this at Olympic Plaza in downtown Calgary on Friday, December 9, 2011. I came a couple hours in advance of the 2pm deadline for Occupy Calgary campers to leave. To my surprise, the tents were gone. Protesters left behind a signs with short messages. They also left this sculpture.

I found a few pieces of what I assume was a display set here. They were lying separate and I put them together for this photo. This photo can use some fixing.

But, I posted it now, because I still like it. It's probably my favorite shot of the day.
