A Different Perspective

by Lindsay Shapka in


It is easy to stop 'seeing' the city that you live in when you are stuck driving, riding your bike or walking around it on a regular basis. To shake up my perspective of my current home town (Edmonton, Alberta, Canada), I took the elevator (ya, I was too lazy to take the stairs) up to the top level of a few different parkades in the central core.

What did I discover? 

That there is a vast space up there that is relatively unused and would be great for a party, a picnic, or suntanning. People never look up when they are walking through the streets below. There are A LOT of reflective buildings in Edmonton's downtown. It is quiet, and the view is incredible.
