Category Archives: weekly photo walk–shutterfly’s pix
…some more photos from yesterday’s photo night! There were so many cool tress on this street…but also LOTS of mosquitoes and well LITTLE wind, and I had to pee… so didn’t linger long on the other other side of the bridge at all!
..the light was perfectly peeking through the leaves…and so cool to see tress leaning across the sidewalk, to create an awesome canopy over my head as I walked under it!
or the “Bridge Drive In“…is a landmark here in Winnipeg, for over 45 years, and the focus of my weekly photo night! After work I had a horrible time moving south on Osbourne (it took me literally 20mins to crawl about 3blocks to get to my house; I could have walked it faster! But I did observe some interesting things…I can’t believe how many grown-ups PICK their NOSES..while STUCK in traffic!?)
..I heard on the radio that Osbourne was backed up to Jubilee..(which is the street that the BDI is on–bad news for me..because sitting in traffic, doesn’t make me that happy of a camper) and because the Jubilee overpass at Pembina Hwy is closed for construction..(please don’t get me started on that in this city…. now that season is in full swing!) Ryan and I opted to have dinner FIRST in the Village and then head out to get to the bridge, and you know what? It was a PERFECT plan…
It was awesome to arrive, get parking..and enjoy the sun…and a breeze strong enough to keep the mosquitoes away (well for the most part!) I love these bridges…this has been closed off just for foot traffic, and bike traffic. I love how the old metal looks against the sky—and the clouds floating in the background… just makes me happy…
Tonight for my weekly photo night, I drove over to Transcona and met Ryan..and then we went for a walk through a couple of parks.. last week with all the rain, T-town got hit HARD!! (lots of flooding damage, and the park still had spots with a good few inches of standing water in it…)
Despite being in a funky mood…ask Ryan, he’d totally agree with that! I think it has something to do with being exhausted, (sleep-or the lack of it for the last week), being busy at work-and tryin to keep it all together there, and well just being EXHAUSTED..Having a LIMITED battery for my camera, couldn’t find the 2nd one.. and the other was well ‘flashin’ the whole time I was out shooting–but still managed to get 75images!
Anyways… the night was not all crazy, it was acutally quite good… I got to swing on a swing, like a kid..going HIGH into the SKY…and well making myself feel sick, (apparently my motion sickness applies to swing- swinging!) other than feeling motion sick swinging well that ROCKED! and I took this amazing photo of my feet… I dig it!! (this was all done because I asked Ryan what he was doing—I took this photo.. then said… “it’s not working” we adjusted some settings on my cam.. and I took a few more.. BUT this one is my fav of the group! That’s the part of walking around with another photographer I like… you learn cool stuff… from them! Ryan also has a blog, “Exploring his World!” and has some AWESOME, AMAZING images.. if you want you can check it out HERE! 🙂
Here’s a shot of the water… crazy bubbles where in this ‘pond’…I’m not looking forward to the Mozzies that we are being promised from this ‘standing’ water…. YUCKY!
Tree bark… loved the colours and tecture…
So there’s my shots from my Tuesday night shooting!!
