After all these years, it never fails to amaze me when I stumble upon new (to me) and interesting (again, to me) places. I must have driven past these streets in Central St. Boniface (between Des Meurons and the Seine River), but I’d never thought to drive down them until now. I’m not saying I found the Taj Mahal or anything, but I love character commercial buildings like these ones, especially when they’re relatively hidden in  neighborhoods that are predominantly residential. Discoveries like this remind me just how huge Winnipeg is.

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.

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.

I’ve photographed these guys before, but I get such a kick out them, I thought I’d make a return visit. For the uninitiated, these can be found at Le Market on Des Meurons. The heads live beside the shop (the back of which is pictured in the bottom photo).

A look at the Marion Hotel, along with the accompanying vendor. Check out the awesome spelling of hear as in Get beer hear in the last photo. By the way, if you haven’t tried out the new restaurant in the hotel, The Marion Street Eatery, it’s definitely worth checking out. A really great little brunch spot.

The sunset view of the skyline from St. Boniface. And Sal’s on the Bridge. Goodbye Sal’s—it’s been swell knowing you.
