Good morning! My name is Victor and I live in Calgary, the city which hosted the 1988 winter Olympic Games. I’m a designer. I don’t design interior, I work with pipe lines and pumps. Some people may find it boring but I like my job.
So, it’s Monday, January 30th, 2012.
I usually wake up before 7 a.m.
Brushing my teeth.
My unhealthy breakfast: a chicken breast, a couple of pancakes and a cup of strong black tea.
I was quick!
I had some time to read news.
They promised nice weather for that day…
I polished my boots.
Ready to go.
There was still snow in the steet.
My way runs through an Acura dealer center.
A heated bus stop.
In the subway.
There are no turnstiles here in the subway. They just trust their passengers.
I love reading since childhood and I read whenever I can.
25 minutes later I was in downtown.
People hurrying to their offices. LOL.
A link building.
There are three elevators in this 10-storey building. I prefer to come 10 minutes later than the rest so I don’t have to elbow in the hall.
Entrance into my office.
In the office.
My co-worker checking out Facebook.
The city was just waking up.
I decided to make a cup of coffee.
It was dawning.
Our project manager.
I went out for a smoke break.
We meet our clients in the hall. That morning it was empty.
In the restroom.
Nothing changed on my desk while I was away.
At 10 a.m. we had a planning meeting where we discussed our plans for the week. Those two in the upper photo are from Venezuela. The guy in the glasses is a local.
Then it was time to go have lunch.
I set my choice on Japanese food.
My order was number 29.
There were not many people in the restaurant.
Let me tell you about these covered passages.
Link buildings are popular here in downtown Calgary because it’s very cold in winter and this is how people escape from biting frosts. There are entire streets with stores, cafes and restrooms in there! The passage in the photo was damaged by someone’s crazy truck…
I headed to the park where people jog and skate.
An arch a la cowboy.
A restaurant a la watermill.
The playground was empty because it was very cold.
A skateboarder walking his dog.
Those rubber mats are for people wearing skates.
Heading back to the office.
This weird statue always meets me by the office.
I started preparing for my business trip and saw my computer dying…
It needed professional help!
I copied the information from the sick buddy to this laptop.
People were leaving their offices to go home.
It was time for me to go home too.
My computer waiting to be reanimated.
Heading to the subway.
Waiting for my train.
Far in the distance there are mountains. You can’t see them right now but trust me they are there!
This bus stop is familiar to you already.
So are these Acuras.
Gas prices may go up and down several times during the day.
This gas station offers to win a trip to Hawaii!
My electronic key.
I checked my mailbox.
Home, sweet home!
I love travelling and bringing home magnets from the cities I visit.
My wife couldn’t choose which pair to buy and the salesman offered us to take home both of them and think. We had to bring one pair back.
Approaching the mall.
We had a baby and we could park over here.
We had a stroller in the trunk!
They provide their clients with such carts for babies.
In the mall.
I love this chair!
The salesman returned us the money for the boots we brought.
A cafe in the mall.
Time to have dinner.
It was Japanese again.
I turned on my navigation system to go to the nearest Mitsubishi dealer to check out their cars. Who knows, I could buy one.
They worked until 8 p.m. and we didn’t make a test drive. We decided to come back and do it on Saturday.
The parking lot where I leave my car.
We had tea and fruits for dinner.
I didn’t feel like carrying this camera with me because it’s too heavy. I just want to show it to you.
I checked out the photos I took and went to bed.
Thank you and good bye!
What are you waiting for? Make photos of your day and send them in!
