…little bit of that.
These were taken following the first big blizzard of the season, back around Christmas time.
A mid-winter stroll down Portage Avenue.
A look at West Broadway from a hot day back in April.
More rescued and/or reworked photos from the archives. These ones are all from 2008.
If you’ve been visiting Winnipeg Love Hate for a while, you might have noticed what has become an annual winter tradition—a raiding of the archives. I seem to find it harder and harder to get out shooting in the winter months, which leaves me short on material to post on Winnipeg Love Hate. When this happens, I reach for one of my many hard drives full of original RAW files, to see if there’s anything worth re-visiting.
This has been a particularly difficult winter as far as shooting goes. For one thing, I’ve got a 6-month old daughter at home (this is most definitely not a complaint—she is an absolute joy). Also, my camera and primary lens sustained a massive amount of damage (which tends to happen when you drop things) a few months ago, and I was without the lens for just under three months. Most of the shooting I’ve done this winter was with my secondary camera—the very capable Sony RX100.
All of the shots here are from 2009. Most of them are previously unedited, whereas a few of them are new edits of previously edited and posted shots. More goodies from the archives to come over the next couple of days.
A trio of night shots, all of which were previously unedited shots from 2009 or 2010. From the top: The Paris Building (Portage Avenue, built 1915), The Federal Building (Main Street, built 1935), and Misericorda Health Centre (Sherbrook Street).
A few photos from around the corner of Portage and Sherbrook: the gorgeous Casa Loma Building (Portage Avenue, built 1909), the almost equally impressive Manitoba Telephones Building (Sherbrook Street), and a curiously green mural on Sherbrook. First two shots are previously unedited from 2008 and the last on is a new edit of a shot taken on the same day.
Some photos from a gorgeous night in and around Memorial Park while attending ManyFest. First, the Legislative Building (Broadway Avenue, built 1920); a look down Memorial Boulevard; war memorial on Memorial Boulevard; one of the infuriating lineups at ManyFest; and a typical apartment building of the area—221 Colony.
Quite a different experience looking west and looking east down Portage Avenue from around Langside Street. A west view offers an open view of the prairie sunset, while an east view offers a sneak peak at the heart of Downtown. While you’re doing this east/west experiment, stop in for a burger at Junior’s.
A couple of shots from the West Broadway area—Pizza Bite and the mural on the side of Precision Camera Repair.
