What better way to pass the time while stuck in post-blizzard traffic than to shoot photographs out the window (as long as you’re not behind the wheel). These photos were taken after a real doozy of a storm back in early January 2014. The top photo of the fire hall was taken on Border Street, while the rest of them (25 Midland, Garbage Hill, and Canadiana Motor Inn) were all taken on Midland Street.

Garbage Hill (Westview Park), Empress Street. I headed to Garbage Hill (aka Westview Park) this past Canada Day to photograph the fireworks displays from The Forks and from Assiniboine Park. When I realized I forgot my zoom lens, I figured I’d make the most of the situation and take photos of the other people gathered on the hill instead.

Garbage Hill

As a kid, there was no better place to be on a mild Winter day than Garbage Hill.

It's Rough Out There

The northerly view from Garbage Hill: not the finest that Winnipeg has to offer.

A Garbage Hill Autumn
From up on Garbage Hill, Downtown Winnipeg looks like a functioning, vibrant, liveable downtown.

Until you realize you’re standing on a large pile of trash.

Garbage Hill
What do you do when you have a garbage dump that is all of a sudden in the middle of an expanding city?

Cover it in grass and call it a park!

This has always been my favorite tobogganing site in Winnipeg, especially the side pictured here (where “Danger! No Tobogganing!” signs are plentiful).
