winnipeg through my eyes

so this yr i havent spent as much time behind the camera as i normaly do, due to a incident with watter and a laptop (stupid cats) recently i got a new one yay!

and in that time allot of change has happend for me i nearly had a finacial melt down i've moved downtown into a studio got rid of stuff allot of stuff...

i've gotten back into my thing.
and my yr started out with a epic new years party celebrating the 130th birthday of the house i grew up in





the years pass by from timber to timber
you rose long ago
to see to feel
you have been
this years a time
to change indeed
to party this way
to say hello
you shelting ways
will always be
to remember those year i shall i shall
if only you could
speak

witch my mother sold this past weekend

i went to festival du voyager for the first time in 8 yrs
was awsome have i ever mentioned how awsome my nieghbors are ? i miss them allready


snow sculpture from the winter festival


crisp night to weathers be gathering all
to maples snow
to snow it beat
this crisp night
of dancing
of sleding
of it all
we party about this winters night
to celbrate du voyager
the past of the
greatnes of past
this be our history indeed indeed

as times tinkers along i am poor and under employed and taken on a dead end soul killing job and have no time

south to sell
ideas of school
to slither within
the souls
unsuspecting scaming way
these people unaware unaware
slowly
slowly
sneaking their minds
to a system of lies
lies lies lies
why i do why i do
soul sucking soul sucking deep within a robots way to nothing i be
a black hole growing sucking a black hole it be

then spring comes and i quite and relax for a bit

while i manage to grab a few shots


new home to be
people come people go
these walls awaken
awaken once more to a new way
to new homes to shine away





the strip we call portage a wintery afternoon the bus's to come befor a rush


but hey whats this across the way could it be no it cant be a new highrise sweetnes at bee privitly built that be aswell



but hey winnipeg aint winnipeg with out a hoe down right?
one of many parties i have helped put on. at the rocker (a space in A CO-OP OWNED BUILDING in the ecchange full of workers co-ops)


and so a block away upone our square we look up hydro rising above down kings st of west of exchange possibly one of my favorit views in the city


and so i wounder about some time more to drag my self half way across the city at be to a geeking of architects that be a school show case a school show case at the u of m.
a model of downtown to be used from now to think to see


to bridges models



these folk they see
to grow to think
to spire
they go on about this way
to share to be
to make their mark
architects of future ways
so be so be lets the mind grow beyound a box of way


skip forward a few weeks and we find ourselfs back in the exchange looking upone this gem once upone a time a tallet that be in this great nation of canada in 1904.
no to shine again yes to shine again as culinary arts school and residentses for the downtown campus of red river colledge




such a gem left to rot
like it be
to rot away
to cry aloud
surving as well as be
to still have its woods intact
amazingly it dous to shine the oaks to maples floors
rising upone the square it shine once more
a place close so close
to my heart

a rooftop view from the local hackerspace 50 members and growing upone 2500 sqft with room to expand

looking west towards the health sciences center (manitobas largest hospital) cranes rise for the new woments hospital



but hey there is a new tower going up yep yep


aww the exchange



majestic today as be befor
you rise to brick
to glass and timber
u are there to share to be
of grit and all
your hiden gems full to find (keep scrolling you will see one)
rising around to see
to find away
of culinary arts to music and art
this way to be the hipster paridise

upone this veiw a festival of ideas to share to grow this view is beaut o hydro u shine and yes thats a tower rising below



have i ever mentioned how much i love roof top views?


urban walls growing slowly layers and all


the majestic beast it be it be of culinary arts and all


a hill so high above the trees this be spring no leave to be so we wait we wait
this is from the highest point in the city thats an onld garbage dump from the 30's makes a nice park


and as i did find a new job i managed to squeez some time to get out to doors open to grab this interior shot of the culinary arts school talk about an epic classroom this place really is shining once more o and to top it off this is were u learn to mix drinks so u get to get drunk in class yep


a prarie sky seting for the night



i missed so much photo opportunities this summer due to work of crazy hrs and working weekends so i have massive gaps upon this sadly but shortly befor meme i switched jobs cause it was an unsafe environment

manitoba electronic music exposition meme including proper sound (pkj sound rig) was amazing


i spoke befor yep yep i did a hiden gem a hiden gem
this space i have come to know once upone a time a temple hiden away within the exchanges walls and untill this yr i had no idea existed and soon to be a meadia arts hub



so upon the summers end i learn of evictions of change that be now i scramble to toss to purge and find the sweetest of spots to be
in the exchange a studio await

portrait of a friend out my new window




the gem is shining in prarie sky


and so nu blonche comes and the city breaks into parties all round
so a friend gets out and sets their prjector up and beams the cmhr like this
using their interactive software as a parkour dance party goes under way at the forks skate park



shit this is getting real we got a tower crane!


yep aint she a beaut?


morning rise


to the grit this way away
lanes at be
to grit it be
gritty ways to see to flee
o to see this way a brick a board
to pidgons shit
all upon these layers
to see
a beauty of this be
my hood of new
i call it home

just down the lane from me


my window


out back the grit is here

a nights dance away


through the sky
fallow way
to north we go
from birds hill
beyound the sky
a nights houw it be


from fourth a trail
through bush and snow
the lights above
dancing way
a shiming way
a moon lights the way
fourth fourth
through nights way i go


this way it lead
to roads indeed
a night so bright
so far away


to what i see
a falling sky
this night it be
so falling
indeed
a falling sky
pirched here this night
so warm so cold
this way it be


fourth to city speed i go
above it all the sky dancing way
from above edges roofs all way
to see to see it shine way today


so seasons grow this night away
to dance to see
this sky away
from fourth it go
to pass it by
the nights deep
so far away

arching beats of cities beat
along the snow
a covering way
forgoten
to dust
white dancing way
through this dusk
in city way
this bench
this bench
sitting way
buried forgoten
to drifts a day
of prarie sky
seting way



mastering hallow
futures be
the structures rise
amongst it all
a clay of ice
to glass a stone
rising above
to futures past
fighting forward
an idea of be
to peac
to right
to it all
this world is stand
tall beyond
a prarie sky
to stick away
to pound loud
as sharp stark mark way
to skys above



pushing out
cuting edge
like a block
ice way to sled
along the way
carving paths to flee
along this route there be there be




on the walk
to landing see
beyond a crysp
i see today
bricks motor
dust that be
beyond landing foe
a city a world
far far between


so gather round
a temples way
to sing to dance
to slurp away
o soup o soup
a stock it be
soup stock soup stock!
to share to greed
to feast aday
to dance
to sing
all ways that be
o soup o soup
o soup
so so good
to soup



to see to see
beyond it all
as urban as dwell
this city it be
amongst it all
i see to joy
out there in here i see i see
my world that be
from stairs to brick
it be it be

to springs ahead

rises out
to slither way
from romans road
to portage main
this city
echos
of cold of heart
of warm at sleep
to come to see
this day
to fog
to frost




rising up the crane they build
they build this city
they build this city
from rising up
a dozen floor
rising slow
to rising fast
all roiund this city flow
flow flow
about this day
to yellow frame
from rock
to rock
it rising way
