Fear not, Winnipeg thirty-somethings: the world famous Palomino Club will soon be returning, at a former downtown banking hall near you.

A bit of a dog’s breakfast today—shots from all over the city. First it’s the Balmoral Hotel at Balmoral and Cumberland; next, the Nairn Overpass; then it’s BGBX Condos on Wall Street—one of the homeliest modern buildings in Winnipeg; and finally it’s Julianna Pizza on Ellice Avenue. These photos have absolutely nothing in common other than their chronological proximity on my Flickr timeline.

Randoms from the West End

jose-rizalellice-cafe-theatre

A couple of randoms from the West End today. First, a mural of Filipino revolutionary Jose Rizal on the corner store at St. Matthews and Minto, and next the underused (if it’s even used at all) Ellice Café & Theatre.

A look at Wall Street, just north of Portage Avenue. Brothers Lock & Safe, Piston Ring, Solid Wood Furniture and…well, I’m not sure.

West End Gems

A trio of old West End gems. First, Wild Strawberry on Sargent Avenue. Next, the Minto Armoury (St. MAtthews Avenue, built 1914). And last, a photo I’ve title Boarded Up on Burnell. Both of these photos are re-worked versions of photos from 2009.

November Snowstorm

11184355175_951ae4ce35_bsnowstorm11184343815_d991013707_b11167545483_76c3342e9f_b

A collection of shot taken during one of the earlier snowstorms of the winter. As all early snowstorms do, this one slowed the traffic down to a crawl, so I used the opportunity to shoot some photos out the car window. The usual commute is around 15 minutes, but this one was well over an hour. From the top: The Balmoral Hotel (Balmoral Street, built 1966), Airport Parking (Wellington Avenue), Maxie’s (Sargent Avenue), Parts Source (Isabel Street), and a Co-op Gas Bar/Convenience Store (Ellice Avenue).

Portage Avenue (built 1957). Go for the steak. Go for the decor. Go for the tomato juice. Just go.

West End (Grey)

A grey day in the West End. From the top: Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church (or: the whitest church in Winnipeg) on Minto Street. Talk about stark. On grey wintery days there’s a good chance this church disappears, becoming completely invisible to the naked eye. Then we have BGBX on Wall Street. It may look pretty slick from the back side (the view in the photo), but the lifeless, brutally stark front of the building is a an openly hostile, giant Fuck You to Wall Street and St. Mathews Avenue. I don’t get it. Finally, Palomino Club on Portage Avenue, the booby-shakiest joint in town.
