Can you tell the woman in front of the camera doesn't want her picture taken? You can read the fully story here.
This is one of the photos I took 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. I found since, the occupiers removed everything overnight, and left behind some signs and a new sculpture.
One of the journalists covering the Occupy Calgary camp. Obviously, I did a bit selective decolourization. I thought most colours were a distraction (like the bright red ring behind her).
As usual the police were taking photographs of everyone attending the protest. There's a list of causes, that if you are associated with, they will maintain a database on you. They'll release a bit to people who file a Freedom of Information and Privacy Request. But, most of what they collect, which is mainly innocent people, they won't disclose. They'll then share this with police agencies inside and outside Canada.
As always the cops were recording the protesters. I didn't see or hear of any arrests.
Apparently, the undead can take pictures too.
In this photo, I had to do some blurring in editing, to minimize distractions from subject.

Some of the entertainment at the Stampede grounds on Sunday, July 12, the last day of the 2009 Calgary Stampede.
This is some of the media covering the event. I liked this photo, even though it wasn't in sharp focus, so I decided to mess with it a bit, and use the "Pencil Sketch" function.
The annual Rick Hansen Wheels in Motion fundraiser took place outside of Eau Claire Market in Calgary on Sunday, June 14, 2009. It raises money to find a cure for spinal injuries, as well as improving accessibility for people with disabilities. People who are able to walk find out what it's like to navigate a race course in a wheelchair. Competitors included politicians and media personalities.
Katie Schneider wrote about the event for the Calgary Sun, in "Calgary celebs compete to raise research bucks".
Just in case a wheelchair ran into a moose, there were paramedics on stanby. Thanks to both girls and the moose for posing.
There was some kind of military related PR thing going on along Stephen Avenue Mall, with video of the public interacting with the military.
A small group of Falun Gong followers gathered at Olympic Plaza to show people their practices and inform them about persecution of them in China.
The Calgary Police had a substantial presence. They mainly watched and took lots of pictures. There were a few arrests, but not many, and relations between police and demonstrators remained civil throughout.
As soon as an Iraqi journalist threw a shoe at Bush it was clear that this old-before-it-started gimmick was destined to be popular. Several people threw shoes at a picture of Bush (off camera to the left), and a couple kids played near the end, when I took this picture.
Protesters gathered outside the Telus Convention Centre in downtown Calgary on March 17, 2009 to protest a speach by George W. Bush inside. They were calling for Bush to be tried for war crimes and objected to his presence in Canada. This was one of the many photographers covering the protesters.
A TV crew from OMNI Calgary covered the protest.
