Ah Wolseley, my old stomping grounds.
A mid-winter stroll down Portage Avenue.
Yup, more old ones from the archives—some previously unedited, and some reedited. From the top: A couple from the basement of the Downtown Bay before Zeller’s moved in (I’m sure the emptiness down there these days is even more…empty); Westminster Avenue in the heart of Wolseley, Vulcan Ironworks, along with some junked cars on the south side of the building; Fire Roses Flour/Ogilve Mills; St. Boniface Post Office; the alley just north of Princess and McDermot; and teepees at The Forks.
Here’s the last batch of previously unseen or reworked photos from the archives for now…unless this lousy weather keeps up.
More rescued and/or reworked photos from the archives. These ones are all from 2008.
More from the archives. These ones are all from 2008 or 2009. The majority are previously unedited, but a couple of them are new (presumably better) edits of previously posted shots.
A look at the slick addition (going back a few years now) to Tall Grass Prairie (Westminster Avenue). I used to live just a couple blocks away from this place; I miss the cinnamon buns.
No matter how much snow and cold we get, days like this one make it all worthwhile. (Note: I don’t recall a single occurrence of hoar frost this winter…yet.) Both of these shots are from a gorgeous day back in April 2009. The top photo (Pavilion, Assiniboine Park) is a new edit of a previously edited photo, and the bottom one (Westminster Church at Westminster and Maryland) was previously unedited.
A couple of colorful dusk shots. Stella’s/Zip-Kleen (Sherbrook Street): New edit of a photo from 2008. I processed this one in black and white originally, but looking at it now I don’t know what I was thinking. So much gorgeous colour here—why waste it? 55 Nassau Street (built 1970): New edit of an old photo from 2008. I was never really happy with the color of this one in previous attempts—I think I got right this time.
Southwest corner of Portage and Maryland.
Some shots from a stroll down Portage Avenue during (close to Wall Street) on an absolutely gorgeous sunset. It’s a decent stretch of Portage Avenue, which includes side-by-side pizza joints, Advance Electronics, Zax Drive-Inn, the Fletcher Buildings, and some simple but elegant modernist buildings.
Palmerston and Aubrey.
