Motifs on the upper reaches of the old Winnipeg auditorium.
This looks like a recent replacement or refurbishment.

Image

Some more of the same.

Image

Another look at some late 30's architectural artwork on the same building.

Image

Night lamp at the same location. I need to go back and take my time with these under more favorable weather conditions. There's a bit of a spike to the base that got cut off in the hurried snapping I was doing.
These were originally carbon arc fixtures. I think they have been up-graded to L.E.D.'s, and no longer pool the light in the original fashion.

Image

This is a new wing of the Winnipeg Art Gallery.
It will house a permanent Inuit art gallery.
The old auditorium is in the back-ground at lower right.

Image

Soapstone carving in the courtyard of the new gallery.
It is about 9 feet high.

Image

Another view of the same piece.

Image

This I like a lot. It is one of my better photographs.
Exposed for the shadows, and then opened up a 1/3 of a stop.
ISO 200 on auto W/B.

Image

Quick snap of the same piece with the camera on full "P" mode program...

Regards,

Doc Sharptail

This is the top most level of the Lindsay Building downtown.
I was really pushing the little p&s Canon pretty hard.
Taken from about 400-500 yds from the building's footings.
About an 80% crop. ISO 320, f8, 1/1000th sec. hand-held.
I rested the base of the camera on the steering wheel.
The windshield was pretty dirty as well.

As usual, I need to go back and do this properly from a tripod...

Regards,

Doc Sharptail.

Me and Mrs. outside Rainbow Stage.
Mural behind us is for "A Mid Summer's Night Dream" 8 or 9 years ago.

Image

Another squirrel stash. There's a thin layer of acorns under the leaves in this hole.
Texture and resolution study with the little Canon point and shoot...

Regards,

Doc Sharptail
