Big changes coming to this portion of Downtown over the coming years. Construction is set to begin over the next little while on what will be Winnipeg’s tallest building. Although I don’t usually believe these things until the shovels hit the ground, I’m looking forward to something—anything—taking the place of the 40-year eye-sore on the corner of Main and Graham.
If you’re a regular visitor to this site, you might have noticed a spike in the number of Nutty Club shots, as well as others shot in the vicinity of Shaw Park. About a year ago, my office moved to the area, so I often find myself strolling the area during the lunch hour. There’s something about those Nutty Club buildings; I find them irresistible.
A noon-hour Downtown photo walk. Highlights include the 360 Main Street re-cladding, which is coming along quite nicely, and the great new signage at the McKim Building (formerly the Crocus Building, and the Ashdown Hardware Store before that).
Working in the vicinity of Shaw Park, I’m often treated to beautiful morning and evening views. I don’t always have my camera with me, but I do always have my phone (iPhone 6 to be exact), and they say the best camera is the one you have with you. As long as you don’t zoom in too close, I tend to agree.
