Calgary Camera Club turns its lens on the city

We asked the good people of the Calgary Camera Club if they'd share their visions of Calgary with us.

EDITOR'S NOTE: A city taken as a moment in time — we asked the good people of the Calgary Camera Club if they'd share their visions of Calgary with us.

Calgary is a complex city. Is there a collective identity? I'm not so sure.

Seeing the city through a lens, you tend to see it as moments, as one-off visions.

We at the Calgary Camera Club — professionals and amateurs alike — try to capture those moments. And we wanted to share glimpses of life in our city in 2016.

Whether Calgary is struggling with crisis or riding high on a wave of success, we are a resilient lot.

As the pictures show, life happens.

Let's celebrate the diversity.
