Here’s a shot of the Research Centre at St. Boniface Hospital, in front of one of my most hated strip malls in the city. Could there be a worse “welcome to to St. Boniface” than this shitty, dated strip mall (which is at Marion right where it splits from St. Mary’s)? Think about how much cooler this stretch of Marion would be—not to mention better connected with Downtown—if the businesses in this strip mall were built up to the curb. This would likely be a go-to neighborhood, and better complement the french-quarter vibe that St. Boniface has been pining for for years.

More from the Arlington Bridge, including a westerly view down Jarvis Avenue. If you have a soft spot for this bridge, you’d better come say your goodbyes soon—it’s scheduled to be decommissioned in 2020.

  • No kidding? I like driving straight up to the top a little quickly to get that stomach-dropping-out feeling.ReplyCancel

      I distinctly remember a thrilling feeling as a kid when we’d go over the bridge. It felt like an event. Still does, but perhaps to a lesser degree.ReplyCancel

Some sunset shots from back in mid-September. It had been a while since I’d been out shooting at night—not much time these days after the birth of my baby girl in July—but this was one of those nights I knew I had to get out and shoot. I think I actually missed the real color show by around five minutes, but I still managed to get some nice results.

On a side note, I’m going to try to resist this spot for a while, as it is now officially the most clichéd photo spot in the city. It’s understandable, of course; the bridge, the museum, the skyline, the river, the sunset. Pretty spectacular.
