Took in the Gilbert Park Community Powwow back in July at the Bill Mosienko Field on Keewatin Street. Thanks for the invitation, NorWest Co-Op.
While taking photos of the 5n Dime (what is this place??) back in June, I got called over by the owner of Zidrum’s/Brake Band across the street. I can’t remember his name unfortunately, but he was a very friendly fellow. After moving here from Croatia, he started up this place, and has been running it now for over 35 years (if my memory serves me well).
A look at West Broadway from a hot day back in April.
The name pretty much says it all.
Parcel 4, The Forks. I don’t usually title photos, but these ones I’ve called Pluck A Duck and Monster Bag of Cotton Candy.
While on Waterfront Drive, A gentleman by the name of Frankay asked me to take his photo. Shortly before, I had taken a photo looking west down Alexander Avenue, and a couple looking south towards the Fort Garry Hotel.
Pembina Highway. That long wait for a bus on a summer evening.
Main and James.
Garbage Hill (Westview Park), Empress Street. I headed to Garbage Hill (aka Westview Park) this past Canada Day to photograph the fireworks displays from The Forks and from Assiniboine Park. When I realized I forgot my zoom lens, I figured I’d make the most of the situation and take photos of the other people gathered on the hill instead.
Some shots from Lombard Avenue in the Exchange District. From the top: One of the Nutty Club Buildings; a couple of shots of 135 Lombard—a real modernist gem; the Grain Exchange Building (built 1908); a modernist parkade; and finally, a chap whose name I cannot remember. He had asked me to take a photo so I gladly obliged. I had my wide angle lens on at the time (not recommended for portraits) which explains his inexplicably large feet.
