As you may have noticed in my recent posts, it’s been an interesting time for me lately. It started, innocently enough, with some VIP pit access to the NASCAR race in Sonoma and stretched to a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to spend time in the locker rooms during the MLB All Star Game. Then, I left Dell and three days later joined Getty Images.
To cap off this hectic time, I headed out to Calgary to get a chance to meet all the good people at iStockphoto.com. If you haven’t used iStock yet, you should really check out their incredible selection of micro stock images, footage and audio. While my focus is mostly business, as a part-time photographer, I was particularly impressed with the incredible level of respect, care and attention that they provide to their great contributors. I look forward to working closely with everyone in the iStock family to help continue growing their business.
As for this photo, it’s the Calgary Tower, which dominated the Calgary skyline when it opened in 1967 but with subsequent oil booms is quietly being obstructed by more and more taller office buildings.
