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.

First post in a while—been away. Here’s a look at Waterfront Drive. These were taken on a walk way back in late September. If you haven’t been in the area lately, then likely the most surprising addition is The Flying Saucer condo (it likely has a proper name, but it will always be The Flying Saucer to me), at the very end of Waterfront overlooking the Disraeli Freeway. This is a completely audacious design for a Winnipeg condo, and I can’t wait to see the completed product.

A look at the corner of Waterfront Drive and Heaton, technically in Point Douglas, but for all intents and purposes, a northern extension of the Exchange District. Currently, the highlight of this little nook is 61 Heaton (first three photos), but by this time next year, it’s likely that will change.

If you like extreme weather (as I do), it’s been a great summer in Winnipeg. We’ve had a little bit of everything. This was a particularly nasty day, complete with deafening thunder and nickel-sized hail.

The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is a true object d’art—in terms of architecture, likely the best example in the city. However, the building is rarely photographed as a building within the context of the city. Typical photos of the building place it as a stand-alone object with little-to-no environmental context or as the oddly disproportionate foreground of Winnipeg’s skyline.

In these photos I’ve attempted to place the building within the context of the browns and beiges of Downtown’s South Portage neighborhood. When viewed from these angles, the enormous scale of the building is magnified, as is the outlandish (in a good way) design. It’s truly a building like no other in Winnipeg.
