I recently spent a week in New York, just wandering around, visiting museums, eating delicious food, and taking lotsa photos. Here are some of them.

Wintery desktops

| | Comments (1)

Here are some winter-themed desktops from my photos, in a variety of screen resolutions. On Windows, just right click and "set as desktop". On Mac, download the picture then set it as your desktop in System Preferences. If you don't know your resolution you probably have 1024 x 768. If you have a widescreen, get the 1600 x 1200 one and hope it crops nicely.

St. Boniface fire hall
St. Boniface fire hall

I spent yesterday afternoon wandering around St. Boniface taking photos, and I can't figure out why I don't spend more time there. It's just across the river, but I usually just race through it on my bike or in a car.

It's very neat architecturally and historically. I think it just needs a few more new stores and restaurants to get things happening. I started with a coffee at Le Garage (voted best coffee in the city on CBC radio), then wandered by the old city hall, the fire hall, the college universitaire St.-B., Cathedrale St-B., and the Hospital. My photos, as always are on Flickr.

Gossip

Gossip

A Flickr monthly scavenger hunt topic - "Chit Chat" - inspired me to seek out a sculpture that I'd seen but never really looked at closely. I couldn't find a plaque, nor make out the artist's signature, and web searches were fruitless. Finally, I turned to dear Alison, expert on all things arts and crafts in Winnipeg, and she clued me into the name of the piece, artist, and gallery: Gossip, by Rose-Aimée Belanger, whose works are available through the Mayberry gallery. And I love all her stuff! (Anybody got, like, $8000 I can borrow? And do you think the city would mind if I kept it on the boulevard in front of my apartment?)

Flickr geotagging

|

Flickr just keeps getting better! They've added geotagging, which lets you mark where your photos were taken, anywhere in the world. Looking at my sparse map, makes me want to travel more, and to scan in my old pictures, to look at least a little more cosmopolitan.

July Scavenger Hunt

|

I entered the Monthly Scavenger Hunt on Flickr for the first time this July, and it was a lot of fun, although it was a lot more work than I expected. And somehow, two of my pictures were voted in the top 3 for their category!

Deep (1st place, thanks to Russ for the idea):
Parkade stair well

Yawn (3rd place, last minute zucchini carving):
Yawning Zucchini

My personal favourite of my photos, was this one for "flyer":
Dragonfly
