The remnants of an old brick building, prior to it being torn down to make way for a new steel and glass skyscraper. Calgary has a lot of back alleys, but it's losing them slowly but surely. Which is probably a good thing, what with the whole sketchiness of them. But even then, it's sad to see so many old buildings just torn down to make way for the new.
I get excited when I see things being built ON TOP of old buildings. That's how it should be. Like in the movies. Like Blade Runner and The Fifth Element. THAT'S the future I want.
