There are a few tables and chairs set up near the upside-down church in Calgary Alberta. With plenty to do in this area of downtown, it's nice if you're walking around and want a scenic rest stop

So Calgary is known around the world for its artwork. The good and the bad *cough*the blue ring*cough*
This piece is outstanding and I think Calgary is lucky to have it here as it's a wonderful addition to their already booming art scene.

An interesting site to see, a church with its steeple dug into the ground. They say as if to "invite scrutiny from the heavens"

It would be very easy to miss this little information sign about the Device to Root Out Evil. It's tucked off to the side and is small in size. Keep your eye out for it while visiting the upside-down church in Calgary Alberta

An interesting name and an interesting display. I was fascinated by how it stood on its steeple on that tiny bit of an angle.

Little seeker and I pretending to help the church stand up because it looks like it's falling over!
