Here’s the last batch of previously unseen or reworked photos from the archives for now…unless this lousy weather keeps up.
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.
Two previously unedited photos from 2008. Esplanade Riel (built 2004): At the time, I was more interested in capturing the entirety of the bridge, and I chose to work with some of those wider shots. Looking back now, I see that I overlooked this detail shot (especially now that Sal’s is gone from the bridge). Richardson Building (Portage and Main, built 1969): Not sure why I didn’t do anything with this back in 2008. I suspect it was because I couldn’t do anything with the colour balance with the software I was using at the time. Lightroom and Photoshop just keep getting better and better—and that’s part of the reason I like to revisit these old photos.
The sunset view of the skyline from St. Boniface. And Sal’s on the Bridge. Goodbye Sal’s—it’s been swell knowing you.
