Working in the vicinity of Shaw Park, I’m often treated to beautiful morning and evening views. I don’t always have my camera with me, but I do always have my phone (iPhone 6 to be exact), and they say the best camera is the one you have with you. As long as you don’t zoom in too close, I tend to agree.

A few shots from around the South Portage area of Downtown. The area may be seeing a big change in the coming years (if the project ever actually gets off the ground), but not as much so as a few blocks away, where True North Square—an apparent game changer—will be taking shape.

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.

Here are a couple of photos taken from the condo on Wellington at Cockburn. The first one is looking southeast towards a cluster of mid-rises on south Osbourne, and the second one shows the MTS building on Corydon with Pembina Highway in the distance.

Last batch of photos from Prairie 360. The night I visited (back in mid-July), I lucked out and got a pretty interesting sunset, which painted the westerly view with vivid colors and made the Hydro Building look even sexier than usual. But with its bland mid-rises and plentiful surface lots, the southwesterly view (towards Osborne Village) was somewhat less inspiring.

More Prairie 360 shots. Built in 1987, the revolving restaurant is somewhat of a curious, tacky structure, that was clearly meant to complement the Fort Garry Hotel, but just ends up feeling like a relic of 1980s post-modernism. But nobody goes there for the architecture (or the food, for that matter). It’s all about the view.

The view of the downtown skyline is decent (ie, the cluster of buildings at Portage and Main), but it’s definitely not the highlight; many of the area’s surface parking lots and nondescript mid-rises mar the view. And he viewing angle towards Portage and Main isn’t that great to begin with—201 Portage is barely visible, making the corner’s four skyscrapers look decidedly less impressive. It’s really the smaller details that make the view from Prairie 360 impressive. In particular, it’s a real treat to see The Fort Garry Hotel from above.

And of course there’s the star of the show (the biggest difference between the current incarnation of the revolving restaurant and the former one): The Canadian Museum for Human Rights. Without a proper viewing tower at The Forks (the current one stinks, and does not offer a good view of the museum), Prairie 360 is the very best place to soak in views of the museum. This alone makes it worth the trip.

I finally got a chance to check out Prairie 360, the new incarnation of downtown Winnipeg’s revolving restaurant. And of course, I was sure to bring my camera. While I’d say the food was okay (not great—just okay), the view is the real star of the show (no surprise there). Great views of the CMHR, Esplanad Riel, The Forks, St. Boniface, and parts of downtown.

Here’s the first batch of photos from the evening. From the top: A look the fork in the road between St. Mary’s Road and Marion Street; 21 Mayfair Place with the Donald Street bridge in front of it; the cluster of buildings at Donald and Stradbrook; and finally, a look at the St. Boniface Hospital and where the Red and Assoniboine Rivers meet (ie, the forks).
