I was the friend from the faraway place and could not have said it better than Helen in her blogpost:
Once in a while, a friend comes for a visit from a far away place and he reminds you that you could find inspiration in the most unlikely places. After a flat white at Coffee Bureau (that will be another blog post at a later stage), we went to explore with our cameras. While the rest of Edmonton was going about their usual weekday business, we zigzagged our way down 104th street through alleys and sidewalks. In a typical full time mom fashion, I had my toddler strapped into his stroller on this little downtown adventure and I even managed to snap a few pictures worth keeping. Editing these pictures have reminded me of the beauty out there, outside of our little bubble – in this city we call home.
