Four Years of Winnipeg Love Hate

Albert Street

Yesterday marked the fourth anniversary of Winnipeg Love Hate. Kind of hard to believe. As cliché as it sounds, it truly feels like only yesterday that I started––quite spontaneously, mind you––this blog which, in the early days, was known as Winnipeg: Love And Hate.

I just wanted to thank everyone for sticking around, and for making this the fantastic experience that it has been. I know there are stretches of time where I’m very light on commentary, which might give the impression that I’m grumpy. This couldn’t be further from the truth; my on-going adventures with Winnipeg Love Hate continue to be a joy.

The above panorama of Albert Street appears to be my most popular photo (it’s certainly my best seller). Funny that a photo that was made on a rather miserable, dreary, completely unremarkable day would be my most iconic image.

Here’s a link to the 500 “most interesting” images from Winnipeg Love Hate, as determined by Flickr.com’s mysterious “interestingness” algorithm. As activity on the photos continues, the list is constantly changing. The list even contains some photos that haven’t been posted on the blog yet.

And just a reminder for those of you who are interested in seeing some of my work in person: A small selection of prints are on display and available for sale at Warehouse Artworks at McDermot and Albert Street.
