    Default Calgary's Central Memorial Park

    A PLACE FOR VETERANS AND THE PUBLIC TO ENJOY

    Calgary's Central Memorial Park is sometimes called Central Park and also Memorial Park. It is found at 1221 - 2nd Street SW in the Beltline district. By day this is a pleasant, open location with a reasonable amount of pedestrian traffic, particularly when the Memorial Park Library on the site is open.

    I can see my house! It is a beautiful city park for sure.
    One small friendly bit of advice Peter...you may want to consider leveling these images. The horizon is crooked on the first 2 which in particular slope to the right.

    If you have Lightroom you can use use the crop/ruler tool. If you do not have LR or photoshop here's a few other alternatives below and I am sure others on the forum can help you.
    For LR:
    Straight and Level
    To speed up the process of straightening or leveling an image, press the R key to select the Crop Overlay tool. Next, press Command (PC: Ctrl) and click-and-drag along something in the image that should be straight or level. With this technique, you'll never have to click the Straighten tool in the panel. (In Figure 1, I clicked-and-dragged along the bar.) For even more help straightening the image, press Command-Option (PC: Ctrl-Alt) as you use the Straighten tool to display a grid that will help you straighten the image. Finally, press Return (PC: Enter) to apply the crop.

    For Photoshop:

    If you have Picasa (freeware from Google) you can do it using this:

    and if you are using WIndows Live photo Gallery:
    Straighten a Photo - Windows Live Photo Gallery

    I hope this helps...
