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.

A few shots from around the South Portage area of Downtown. The area may be seeing a big change in the coming years (if the project ever actually gets off the ground), but not as much so as a few blocks away, where True North Square—an apparent game changer—will be taking shape.

Winnipeg Sunset

winnipeg-sunset-2

winnipeg-sunset-1winnipeg-sunset-3winnipeg-sunset-4winnipeg-sunset-5

Some sunset shots from back in mid-September. It had been a while since I’d been out shooting at night—not much time these days after the birth of my baby girl in July—but this was one of those nights I knew I had to get out and shoot. I think I actually missed the real color show by around five minutes, but I still managed to get some nice results.

On a side note, I’m going to try to resist this spot for a while, as it is now officially the most clichéd photo spot in the city. It’s understandable, of course; the bridge, the museum, the skyline, the river, the sunset. Pretty spectacular.

View from Prairie 360 (Part 2)

14686293703_754f3e77fb_b14658053982_11f456d599_b14479742599_0d377628c2_b14479744749_e34f98f622_b14635450146_49a83afc8d_b

More Prairie 360 shots. Built in 1987, the revolving restaurant is somewhat of a curious, tacky structure, that was clearly meant to complement the Fort Garry Hotel, but just ends up feeling like a relic of 1980s post-modernism. But nobody goes there for the architecture (or the food, for that matter). It’s all about the view.

The view of the downtown skyline is decent (ie, the cluster of buildings at Portage and Main), but it’s definitely not the highlight; many of the area’s surface parking lots and nondescript mid-rises mar the view. And he viewing angle towards Portage and Main isn’t that great to begin with—201 Portage is barely visible, making the corner’s four skyscrapers look decidedly less impressive. It’s really the smaller details that make the view from Prairie 360 impressive. In particular, it’s a real treat to see The Fort Garry Hotel from above.

And of course there’s the star of the show (the biggest difference between the current incarnation of the revolving restaurant and the former one): The Canadian Museum for Human Rights. Without a proper viewing tower at The Forks (the current one stinks, and does not offer a good view of the museum), Prairie 360 is the very best place to soak in views of the museum. This alone makes it worth the trip.

Canada Day (Part 3)

One last batch of Canada Day photos. Things just kept on getting prettier as the sun set and the city lights revealed themselves. From the top: The CMHR was looking pretty slick with its tower lit up in Canada Day Red; the fireworks, as always, were fantastic (although every time I try to photograph fireworks I’m frustrated with the results); a close-up view of the signage at the top of the Inn at the Forks; a look at some of the highrises on the opposite side of Main Street; the Children’s museum and the new(ish) Buhler Welcome Centre; and finally, one last shot of the CMHR, along with the skyline and the Canada Day crowds.

More Canada Day photos at The Forks. These photos, by the way, were all taken from the rooftop of the Inn at The Forks.

Canada Day (Part 1)

14570247186_0ae973f6b4_b14415118388_c9d1cc6503_b14406685668_b50a9669e7_b14570239946_0975da4983_b14593277385_647ffe4930_b

Here’s the first of a series of posts of photos from this past Canada Day. From the top: A couple of photos of the CMHR and the skyline. Note that in the second of these photos I used a neutral density filter, which allowed me to slow down my exposure to achieve a motion blur of the mob of people. Over the next few days, I’ll have lots of photos of this CMHR view as the light changed over the late afternoon and evening, as well as a couple of fireworks shots and other miscellaneous shots.

Rounding out this post: The Hotel Fort Garry (Broadway Avenue); The Nutty Club Buildings (Westrbrook Street); and a look at some of the Osborne Village highrises, with new construction on Assiniboine in the foreground.
