I’m not sure how or when this ghost signage emerged, but I hasn’t noticed it until I took these photos back in June. Great sign, and very well preserved too. Down the street is the Brown & Rutherford building (here, seen from Higgins).

This place oozes history, and after shooting it many times over the years, it remains one of my favorite places to shoot in the city.

A couple from Point Douglas. That’s St. Andrews Ukrainian Catholic Cathedral (Euclid Avenue, built 1938), followed by a look at the backside of Canadian Pacific Station (Higgins Avenue, built 1904).

Some sites from (and one from slightly off of) Main Street. The Fish Gallery (is it just me, or is there a disproportionate number of fish-related stores on Main Street?), the corner of Main and Cathedral, St. John Sucharsky Cathedral (built 1891), and Tabernacle United Church (Bannerman Avenue, built 1923).

Some of the great structures in North Point Douglas. From the top: 895, with its whimsical garage door oppening; 831-833 Main Street, looking better than it has in many years, thanks to a nice paint job; Brown and Rutherford on Sutherland Avenue; 187 Sutherland, and finally, a few different angles of the Sutherland Hotel (Main Street).

A gorgeous sunset over Main Street. Just the right conditions for great photos—wet, shiny streets after a storm, residual storm clouds in the sky, and just enough of a break in the clouds to let the sun illuminate everything in golden hour hues. From the top: Holy Trinity Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral (built 1952). Next, a cool set of building at Main and Pritchard—Canadian Motorcycle, Tradesman Mechanical, and Friends Auto.

Main Street. Although not as breathtaking as the initial renderings suggested (when are they?), Necchi Commons is a welcome addition to the North Main strip.

Higgins Avenue. I enjoyed it when you could buy fruit at this place.

Main Street. I’m still amazed at the image quality of the teeny-tiny Sony RX100. It served me quite well while my normal shooting camera (a Pentax K5) was being serviced (for what felt like months). Even though the K5 has returned, I still use the RX100 on an almost daily basis.

Because it’s small enough to carry everywhere, I’m able to capture random moments like this one with the RX100—moments that previously would have been lost forever. From the top: The Northern Hotel, Neechi Commons, the now-closed C. Kelekis Restaurant (with its lights still on for some inexplicable reason), and Cropo Funeral Chapel.
