On February 29, 2008, I made my inaugural post to Winnipeg Love Hate. If you’d asked me then if I’d still have it up and running seven years later, I’m sure I would have answered with a definitive no. But here we are. You’ve given me a lot of love over the years, and if not for that support, there’s no way I’d still be keeping up with the website (who knows if I’d even still be taking photographs), so thanks so much for your seven years of clicks, views and comments.
In preparation for this occasion I’ve been reworking my portfolio. In the past I relied on a completely automated process (a mysterious algorithm from Flickr.com) to generate best of lists, but I never really thought those lists were representative of what I considered to be my best shots. So now, I’ve taken the time to hand picked my favorites. Problem is, I’m a terrible editor of my own work—sorting through thousands of photos, separating the good from the meh, is a daunting and exhausting process. Plus, my tastes tend to be very fluid, and can change radically from one day to the next. As a result, this list will probably see further refinement in the future.
So here’s a link to the reworked Best of Winnipeg Love Hate page. I hope you like the new format (as well as the new photo selection). Please keep in mind, this page is work in progress, and I’m not sure how it will look on mobile devices. Desktop viewing is preferred.
Oh, and that top image? That’s a typical page from the website’s early days( when it was called Winnipeg: Love & Hate), featuring the first of three logos for the site, as well as its much-maligned black background.
