    Hilarious, that old red Lexus is my neighbours car. He’s had it for quite some time and I see it around the city all the time. I’m guessing that building was for sale as he’s a realtor.ReplyCancel

A brief walk through the eastern tip of the River-Osborne area. The notable photo here is the first one—161 Mayfair Avenue—which was demolished shortly after the photo was taken. Simple me, I naively assumed the fencing around the stately old houses was indicative of a forthcoming restorative effort. Nope.

It happens every year. January’s sustained -30 keeps me in the house unable to shoot, so I turn to the archives. The above shmorg is roughly a 50/50 split of previously unedited photos and newly edited photos, originally taken in 2009-2012. One of these days I’m going to do a post explaining why I re-edit certain photos, but for now, enjoy.

  • I can’t even begin to count the number of images I seem to have a deep connection with. I may have left Winnipeg, but doesn’t seem to have left me.ReplyCancel

Here’s a look at the interior of the iconic Times Changed High and Lonesome Club (Main Street), which was thankfully saved from the wrecking ball a couple of months ago. More good news: The building that houses the bar, the Fortune Block, will soon be getting the love that it needs in the form of major renovations. This is great news for Winnipeg’s music scene and for Downtown in general.
