Its that time of week again. Here are a couple photos of skies enjoyed by Regina resident over the past week. (Skywatch Friday)

Here is another pic of Regina's 2 biggest landmarks, the McCallum Hill Twin Office towers on Scarth Street in downtown Regina. In my opinion, these buildings give off some of the best reflections. (click on photos to enlarge)


Built in the 1930's, the Albert Street Memorial Bridge is a landmark here in Regina. This was taken with the flags drawn in honour of the Victoria Day holiday which was celebrated this past weekend.

Love the bridge shot and all the flags! I could get dizzy looking p between those towers!

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Those are great reflections on the towers. I love how the breeze is holding the flags straight on the bridge.

B Squared said...

The shot of the office towers looks so "futuristic." Well done, Guy.

Barb said...

Hi Guy,
I love the cloud & sky reflections in the skyscrapers. It looks as though it was windy in Regina - those flags are fluttering.

There is a lot of artistry in the design and construction of those buildings. You captured them very artistically as well. Incredible blues. Wow.

Karen said...

WOW ... nice shots !!

I love that first one... the sharp, clinical angles of the buildings, contrasted with the soft fluffiness of the clouds. Great composition..

Your EG Tour Guide said...

There's something very special about a bridge lined with waving flags. Everyone who crosses gets to feel like a dignitary for a short while. ;-)

Pacey said...

Flags are just so good to photograph especially if they fly same directions, synchronized. Great shots of both photos as always.

Willa said...

it's really is beautiful..i hope i can visit the place someday!

Tammie Lee said...

Guy both photographs are so beautiful but I am partial to the bridge. Thank you for sharing your city with us.

Guy,
Looks like you stood on your head for this one! (How else did you turn the towers upside down?)

Great photos for sky watch friday all the angles and lines on the sky scrapers make for interesting viewing. Of course I am a tad partial to the maple leaf photo.
