I’ve been absent from the blog for a couple of weeks now and thought it was about time to return. Sometimes it’s necessary to take a break from the things you enjoy; even if only for a short time! I’ll be sure to run by…

Years ago, this 176 foot long ship sailed the Red River and Lake Winnipeg and was one of the largest passenger vessels in western Canada. Now, the rusting and slowly decaying hulk of the MS Lord Selkirk II rests and waits. Either she’ll be scrapped…

An evening photo of Winnipeg. The large building to the left of the frame is the Canadian Museum for Human Rights which is set to open later this month. I’ll be doing some catch up on as many of your blogs as possible! Cheers and…

On my way home from work I decided to take an alternate route and ran into Duane and his buddy Ozzy, who he’s known for many years. Instead of walking by, I decided to stop and chat with them for a bit and got some…

A pleasant encounter with Alain, a local real estate executive. I thought the way he was leaning against the building, along with his pretty cool expression and leather motorcycle vest made for a nice portrait. We talked about a number of topics including photography (he’s…

This encounter was especially interesting as Floyd used to live in a town where I also lived for many years. Although I hadn’t seen Floyd for over a decade, I instantly recognized him, sat down and started chatting. Back then, I didn’t know anything about him…

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a fascination with old doors (hey, we all have our things!). Especially the ones that are a bit worn, weathered and in need of a fresh coat of paint. They have character and can quite often…

I don’t have a story to offer with these portraits; I just noticed him taking a smoke break and decided to start shooting. He was really down to earth and didn’t hesitate or question why I was taking his photos. Great guy. I had to run…

A few floral photos to give you all a visual break on my blog. As I have many other photographic interests, I thought it a good idea to change things up from time to time! Of course, most of these types of images can be…

Yesterday evening I met up with a Winnipeg legend of sorts. For many years Ed Ackerman has been considered an irritant for several Winnipeggers. I found him to be rather interesting and certainly an avid conversationalist! At first I didn’t realize who I was talking to…

Went for a quick walk around the downtown this evening and ended up chatting with Chad and Laura. They were taking a rest before moving on to their next destination, having recently arrived in the city. They travel regularly around the country by trainhopping. Laura…

Blaine was massively outgoing and energetic; so much so that we ended up talking on the street for just over 2 hours! He offered up several stories from his adventures that have taken him from British Columbia on the west coast of Canada to Winnipeg, a…

I met Will as he was waiting for his bus. I took one look at his awesome tattoos and wanted a photo feeling black and white was fitting for this portrait. He was really easy going and kindly allowed me to take a photo. We…

A couple photos of a really great guy I met on the street yesterday evening. I noticed him getting out of a car and immediately called out and said “I have to take your photo!” to which he replied with enthusiastic agreement. Super outgoing and friendly…

I met Shane tonight while heading home from a brief walk around the downtown. I wasn’t in a hurry and when I noticed Shane and another gentleman, I decided to stop and start a conversation. Shane was quite a well spoken young man and was…

By now, many of folks around the world have heard about or read the very sad and unfortunate news regarding Malaysia Airlines flight MH17. The circumstances surrounding this tragedy are equally devastating. As someone who regularly flies and finds the experience both necessary and amazing, I was…

I took this candid shot of Gord as I walked back to work after lunch. I spotted him standing in this shadowy corner and thought the light was excellent. I was tempted to put the camera into B&W mode, but instead felt the colours would…

I often upload photos to the Leica Fotografie International magazine / gallery with the hopes of having my images join the other great photos within their Master Shots, Photo Story, or Feature Photo sections. It’s a great way to showcase your work to a wide range…

Even in a situation like this, it’s good to take the camera out of the bag as you might catch something or someone interesting. Mindy (below) was travelling to Thunder Bay, Ontario and was hoping to catch a few rides along the way; she basically…
