photo post: jasper avenue from 97th to 124th street

This weekend, I took a stroll along Edmonton's Main Street - Jasper Avenue - starting on 99th Street through 124th Street in downtown Edmonton. I brought a camera with me and took some photos along the way (check out Flickr for more).

good photos,

Are you going to write about Palin visiting Calgary?
I find it disturbing that Albertans would find her so appealing.

What a great idea for a series!

Anonymous 12:23: I'm not sure that there is much to write about. "Calgary Conservatives go gaga over Palin?" Sounds like the same crowd that went gaga over George W. Bush and Condoleeza Rice.

Jennie: Thanks! It was fun to walk down Jasper Avenue like that. As a pedestrian, I saw a lot of things I had never noticed before (and wouldn't have noticed in a faster moving vehicle...).

If you have any recommendations for areas of Edmonton that I should cover, feel free to send them my way!

Geez Dave, you missed the rubble of the Gem Theatre. That would of made a good photo. Did you hear Henderson and Iveson saying there was nothing they could do to save it? You know that's a lie, right?

In order for Henderson to lie, he'd have to express a coherent thought. Unpossible!

As a kid we'd take the bus downtown and then skate down to 124st to go to a skate shop. The shop is now gone but I used to love skatin downtown. This post reminds me of that time.

Thanks Dave!

God, what a depressing looking city. Guess we need a downtown arena.

Or maybe we should all just light large fire and buy bus tickets to the coast.

The most impressive thing that strikes me about Jasper Ave. is how easy it is to walk along it. Most of the walk signals at downtown intersections are nice and long, and seem almost to be timed to allow a person to walk at a reasonable pace without having to wait to cross.

It would be nice if the city I live in could do this. Here in Grande Prairie, the walk signal goes out well before you get halfway across the street, and you have to hustle to get across before the light actually changes and the traffic starts to chase you out of the crosswalk.

Dull. Cold. Barren. Lifeless.

Faux North Korean would be more interesting.
