Here are a few from the St. James Industrial area. They were taken during a pretty wicked dust storm. The camera’s sensor already needed a cleaning, so I figured what the hell. From the top: Dino’s (as seen from St. James); Enterprise (King Edward Street); behind St. James Street; the tracks behind St. James; 1308 Border; 1051 King Edward; and a spring cleaner on King Edward.
A look at the back side of St. James Street south of Dublin Avenue.
Ellice Avenue. Although I’m sure the ribs are tasty, I’d be hard pressed to find a more ridiculous looking building in the city.
King Edward near Dublin.
Even the bleakest stretch of King Edward Street can be inspiring when the sunset’s pretty.
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.
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).
Saskatchewan Avenue. Massive snow mountains—a common sight around Winnipeg this winter.
