Boy, after eight years of Winnipeg Love Hate it’s become practically impossible to come up with names for these daily posts. Starting today, I’m going to go with a movie theme. Let’s see how long I can make it last.

First post in a while—been away. Here’s a look at Waterfront Drive. These were taken on a walk way back in late September. If you haven’t been in the area lately, then likely the most surprising addition is The Flying Saucer condo (it likely has a proper name, but it will always be The Flying Saucer to me), at the very end of Waterfront overlooking the Disraeli Freeway. This is a completely audacious design for a Winnipeg condo, and I can’t wait to see the completed product.

The East Exchange District is one of my favorite neighborhoods in the city.  It’s loaded with some of Winnipeg’s most iconic buildings, including the Nutty Club buildings and the Ashdown Warehouse. Lombard, McDermot, and Bannatyne Avenues are some of Winnipeg’s most dynamic and colorful streets. But yet, there’s something not quite right about the area. A look at a satellite image reveals the problem—it’s dominated by surface parking lots. People need to park their cars, but it’s a generally accepted fact that Downtowns with such an unhealthy proportion of parking lots to buildings are not places that people want to be.

I set out one afternoon, camera in hand, to try to capture the relationship between the buildings of the East Exchange and the lots that surround them.

I think this is my first full-on iPhone post. Can’t say I’m overly impressed with the quality of the photos that come out of this thing (iPhone 6); they look overly sharp to me. That being said, it’s awfully convenient having this thing with me at pretty much all times.
