There’s nothing like a road trip. Getting out of the city exploring, and knowing that I was going to be laid up for the next couple months was the perfect motivation to get out and do just that. So on what started out as an overcast Monday in the middle of June, Claire and I took to the road with no agenda or real destination in mind. The weather co-operated, and we had a great day driving, listening to music, and of course stopping when we felt like it to take some pictures along the way. It was a fun day, and a great reminder that you don’t always need to go a long way to find some great subjects.
It hadn’t been the year that was hoped for in Winnipeg this year. Coldest winter in – well a very long time. If you want to get technical I think it was the 3rd coldest winter in over 100 years. We had a good stretch in the summer for 4 or 5 weeks, but that doesn’t totally calm the angry mobs. The reality though is this is Winnipeg, and as long as we live here, we know what we are in for weather wise, and have to be willing to accept it. Some places have perpetual rain, some intense heat, and others tornadoes. Maybe cold isn’t the worst of the negatives we could be stuck with.
In any event when its 28 degrees and almost October, there isn’t much to complain about. Find a patio, and order a pint. Cheers!!
Well, its been a long while since I’ve made any updates to the site, and I hope this will be the start of many more frequent posts.
Well it hasn’t been a great year health wise after breaking my leg in March so I haven’t been able to get out close to what I’d have liked – and that’s after missing last summers photography season with a torn ACL. That aside I was able to get away to Nova Scotia with my daughter for a family reunion at the end of July. It was amazing to reconnect with all the family again and I was reminded just what a beautiful part of the country the East Coast is. These are just a few shots from a ride around the countryside on Cape Breton Island…
Winter in Winnipeg can be cold. Quite cold, especially in January. That’s why when things are a little milder its always good to get out with the camera and try and take in some of the familiar terrain from different perspectives. That’s what I did this past weekend getting out to Assiniboine Park.
We’d had a little dusting of snow and the weather was mild, so off I went.
