An interesting design element of the Qualico Family Centre at Winnipeg’s Assiniboine Park, is the tree growing through the exterior skylight. The building also incorporates a living roof.
A few interior shots of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights in downtown Winnipeg, included are some of the amazing architecture and exhibit areas. Highly recommended if you find yourself in Winnipeg, Canada.

Finally got a chance to photograph the Canadian Museum for Human Rights at night after concentrating on travel images from Eastern Canada. Amazing building and look forward to more detailed interior shots at some point.
Last week on a road trip to Toronto, we spent two full days exploring the downtown on foot. We walked close to 20 km over the two days and after carrying my heavy camera backpack and with two very weary dogs, who got plenty of attention from dog-lovers we headed back towards Winnipeg, I ended up with some decent urban images despite a day of mostly dismal overcast skies. Here are a few quick memorable shots, everything handheld.
Financial district towers
Of course shooting Toronto wouldn’t be complete without a CN Tower shot, here with street car cables in the foreground.
and lastly homeless man in a park near Kensington Market District.

A summer kitchen at the Mennonite Heritage Village in Steinbach, Manitoba. Like the name implies they were used in summer to keep the main home cooler.
This is a very subtle high dynamic range image using 5 exposures.
