The city feels so much better in black and white. Love the contrast of light and dark and how surface textures seem to pop. With our current restrictions, I’ve been living downtown lately and spending lots of time at my studio. I always try to snap as many pics as I can, so here’s a few.
Took my bike and camera and went for a ride the other day. The afternoon was blustery, overcast and kind of perfect. The city looked beautiful. Ended up on the Arlington Bridge, a classic design with a beautiful view of the downtown. Snapped some pics and video and really love the results.
Spent part of my afternoon at the Winnipeg Art Gallery, checking out the current exhibit “In Place: Reflections of Manitoba”. The space is undergoing some massive renovations in the midst of the pandemic so the exhibit space is limited, but SO well done. I snapped some pics while I was there and wanted to share them.
Creativity is like a well and sometimes it can run dry. I’ve had that feeling so many times…but getting out of my routine, checking out local art and taking pictures was the best way to reenergize my inner artist and fill the creative well back up.
I was at my studio on Sunday organizing and cataloging some of my work, and I couldn’t resist taking a few pics with my new Canon DSLR. I can remotely connect it to my phone, hence the pic of me holding my phone. I always enjoy being in my creative space, it’s energizing with all the sunshine and it’s fun to look back through my collection of art. Hope everyone is having a good start to your week.
I love being downtown, there’s something about the buildings, all the activity and sounds of people and the rush of cars passing by that give me all the good feels. Here’s a few shots in glorious black and white in my city of Winnipeg
Something so moody about the city after a rainfall, especially in black and white. A bit unusual since it’s January but we will take it. It will be snow and -35 soon enough.
Downtown Winnipeg on a mild winter afternoon.
I always love a dreary day especially in a rich black and white. Love this city.
Recently went back to my home town to visit my family, and take some photo’s of the farm house where i spent a few of my formidable years. Though it is currently empty and falling apart, this house still holds so many clear and present memories.
