A few shots from Jarvis Avenue. The first few are near Winnipeg Cold Storage (Jarvis at Salter), and the last one is down the road a bit, under the Arlington Bridge. From this angle, the iconic structure seems completely unrecognizable to me.
I’m always on the lookout for foggy mornings, especially on those first few warm days at the end of winter (these are from March 9). On this particular morning, the fog was some of the thickest I’ve ever seen in the city.
Okay, until I finally visit the CMHR for the first time (which will hopefully be soon), I am officially banning myself from taking photos of both the museum and Esplanade Riel.
Underneath Chief Peguis Trail, immediately north of Kildonan Park.
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.
A bit of a dog’s breakfast today—shots from all over the city. First it’s the Balmoral Hotel at Balmoral and Cumberland; next, the Nairn Overpass; then it’s BGBX Condos on Wall Street—one of the homeliest modern buildings in Winnipeg; and finally it’s Julianna Pizza on Ellice Avenue. These photos have absolutely nothing in common other than their chronological proximity on my Flickr timeline.
A gorgeous Autumn sunrise centered around Henry Avenue and the Arlington Bridge. From the top, and moving approximately east to west: A shot underneath the Arlington Bridge, and various structures around the tracks that disappear under the bridge, including an abandoned incinerator.
A couple of shots from the Salter/Slaw Rebchul Bridge. The Canadian Pacific Rail Yards and Winnipeg Cold Storage (Sutherland Avenue).
The sunset view of the skyline from St. Boniface. And Sal’s on the Bridge. Goodbye Sal’s—it’s been swell knowing you.
A pretty sunset in the Chalmers part of Elmwood. From the top: The view from the Louise Bridge; The La Salle Hotel (Nairn Avenue); a couple of shots of the Louise Bridge; the Portage and Main skyscrapers as seen from a break in the trees on Nairn; and a generic apartment building as seen behind and an empty Nairn lot.
Palmerston and Aubrey.
