amazing photos! i’m in love.
The last one looks like an Amish building with all the add-ons.
Amazing photos ❤
elkhorn appears small and a bit sad.
Love the shot of the cars!
Simple. Soakin’. Super-fun pix!
Reminds me of home. Thanks.
I am always telling my friends about how the farmers take their old cars out to the pasture and leave them there. In the past, I used to go out to them and buy them because for some reason the cars don’t rust. Restoring them one at a time has made me excellent income in my younger days. Great blog! Now I have proof I can actually show my friends you photos. Thanks for sharing with so many of us.
Brilliant photos! Congratulations on being freshly pressed.
Great shots. I appreciate the oppressive and comforting space, the sense of things standing their ground against the grey, and giving into it. Cheers.
I love the simplicity you’ve captured. It reminds me of home (Montana). My husband is from Winnipeg. Best!
Good to see the Canadian Prairies featured on Freshly Pressed. I’m from Saskatchewan. I like how the photos show how it really is. Pretty but not really.
Good stuff, haunting photos. Congrats!
Love the last photo – what is that place?
I did a series similar to this about Upper Marlboro, MD. Love how simple and objective you were. These say a ton without being loud. MMM good.
That’s nice work!
Love the last pic.. interesting house… interesting foto..
props on the FP… looks like I gotta post pix from my hood now.
feels so cold and lonely. great shots for like a scary movie.
overcast is gr8
Thanks. I think I’ve passed by Elkhorn many times when taking the Trans canada from Winnipeg to Vancouver. Nice little town. Too bad I never visited it.
Beautiful photos of a rather barren place. Have gone by Elkhorn numerous times on my way to Winnipeg — we’ve even stopped once or twice for gas and a pop.
I have family out in that part of the world. Love the photos, thanks.
Beautiful! Reminds me of home too – I am originally from southeast Sask and have family in the West Man area, these are some really great shots. I enjoy how you framed them, thanks for sharing.
WHen you’ve seen one mile, you’ve seen them all Eh!
Very sad, lonely looking place.
Amazing, beautiful pics.
Congratulations on being Freshly Pressed!
Excellent pictures. They look like ones I have in a coffee table book about the US town of Truth or Consequences.
I’m a proud Canadian when I say, Manitoba is a gorgeous province! 🙂 Those are great photos!
almost not a single tree in kilometers…
I was excited to see Elkhorn’s pictures! They have the best cinnamon bun hot chocolate at the Esso 🙂
Interesting pictures. What place is that at?
having grown up in smalltown alberta, this really strikes a chord. nicely done!
I especially love the first photograph–it looks like the first scene of a film!
superb and beautiful

Nice photography i like too much

From Alberta (and formerly also Vancouver, Toronto.)

good stuf lihe it
You have a nice talent to clicks the pic….. Thank you for sharing
Wonderful… I know its corny, but truly every one of your pictures does tell a story. Thanks for sharing them!
I lived in Elkhorn as a child. Don’t remember that church being in town. Were the cars by the automobile museum?
I love these images… Vaguely eerie. Thanks for sharing.
Really Nice photography,I like the cars pic.its wonderful,Every photo truly tells a story.I liked it.Thanks for sharing the ideas.
I like the combination of the pictures. It all goes so well together!
Beautiful picture of the road sign just outside of Elkhorn. I know that stretch of highway quite well.
Nice job! It’s lovely 🙂
It looks like you’re trying to photograph a ghost in the picture. You’re artwork has a mysterious errie sort of feeling about it. You should really consider superimposing some supernatural entities. That would be insane.
really nice pics – thanks for sharing 😀
Like going back in time…a better time!
congrats on being featured by wordpress 😉
Made my way through this past summer, Calgary – North Rustico, PEI. Canada is amazing for its moody landscapes, simple and complex, all rolled up. OH! Canada! Thanks for the images and good to see that you’re freshly pressed!
I loved driving through those sleepy prairie towns, it’s a shame some neglect what should be considered a gem to Canadian history. Fantastic shots.
nice post 🙂
The fifth photo is my favorite. I like the different angles of the building. It makes me curious to see what’s inside.
I was in Ethelton many years ago visiting my in laws and they have 3 channels on their TV…. and yet they are the happiest people I know. God bless them!

Never been, but it looks really small and laid back. There is a great song by Said the Whale called Dear Elkhorn and your post made me think of it.
So simple, haunting and beautiful!
It is great to see something real and yet extraordinary in its realness. I am glad you made it to Freshly Pressed as it’s always some Greek island or southeast Asian locale. Enjoy the random backroads. -“tarotworldtour”
It seems like a really small town. Thanks for sharing. Connie
Very beautiful images.
Love the grain elevator against the gray skies.
Reblogged this on Dispatches From ConsterNation and commented:
It’s been a long while since I’ve last posted about simplicity or frugality as related to geography but these treat photos from Elkhorn, Manitoba (pop. 461 at the 2006 census) inspires me.
Good stuff, haunting photos. Congrats!
It’s great to see Elkhorn on FP! Although I never really visit it besides passing through. I should change that the next time I’m heading west!
These photos are beautiful. I really like your style: clean, straight forward, and a little melancholic.
No nonsense; cool.
Amazing how something that simple can look so pretty and charming!
I read “an Enforcer’s tale” i nthe NYTimes and now I have an image to the description where the kid used to travel back home with his father after his hockey training. I loved the pics, thanks!
Elkhorn looks bleak and lonely. I’d probably love it there!
Is this the summer over there?
Livin’ it up at the Hotel Manitoba (congrats on being FP’ed)
*hugs the Canadian landscape*
You took these pictures in 1974, right? 1978? I lived in Eureka, California for a while, and it was amazing how the town seemed locked in a time warp. Your pictures have that simplistic quality reminiscent of some early memories of mine.
