Winnipeg Skyline

Winnipeg Skyline – Photography by Mary Mikawoz – Click on image or link to see the bigger picture.

I was on a plane recently and was able to sit on the correct side of the airplane to capture this picture of the Winnipeg Skyline during daylight hours. The buildings may not be as momentous as that found in the architectural skyline of Chicago, New York or Paris but it is significant as the downtown core has all the bigger buildings spreading out to the wonderful wide and flat expanse of the prairies. I like the flow of the river as it bends and curves through the city.

According to Wikipedia, “Winnipeg is the capital and largest city of the province of Manitoba in Canada. It is centred on the confluence of the Red and Assiniboine rivers, near the longitudinal centre of North America. As of 2021, Winnipeg had a city population of 749,607 and a metropolitan population of 834,678, making it the sixth-largest city, and eighth-largest metropolitan area in Canada.”

With my art, I am often in a zen-type of mood and with my photography, I feel as if I am inspired by God or the Universe to capture these moments in time.

Westminster Abbey

Westminster Abbey – Photography by Mary Mikawoz – Click image to see the entire picture.

This is a photograph of the Westminster Abbey in London, England in the United Kingdom.

According to Wikipedia, “The Abbey is the burial site of more than 3,300 persons, usually of prominence in British history: at least 16 monarchs, 8 Prime Ministers, poets laureate, actors, scientists, military leaders, and the Unknown Warrior. As such, Westminster Abbey is sometimes described as “Britain’sValhalla”, after the iconic hall of the chosen heroes in Norse mythology”

You Light Me Up!

You Light Me Up – Photography by Mary Mikawoz – Click image to see entire photograph.

We were just wondering around London, England and I saw this beautiful combination of arched windows with a balcony of pink and white flowers just in front of a light post. I believe we were around the corner from Westminster Abbey of the Church of England which is home to coronations and weddings of the Royal family.

We love to walk around and see what beauty we can encounter in all the most unexpected places here in Canada and around the world when we are able to travel. I enjoy the company of my husband and my son as we are able to have travelled in the past and they definitely are true to the saying “You Light Me Up.”

Old Fire Hall

Old Fire Hall

This is Fire Hall Number 15 located on Osborne Street in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. I like the way the clouds are dramatic and so interesting drawing your eye back into the fire hall as a centrepiece. I thought it was more effective as a black and white photograph. 

According to the City of Winnipeg website, “This 1913-built stone and brick fire hall is one of more than a dozen built by the City of Winnipeg based on a set of standard plans developed in 1904…The solid brick Osborne Street Fire Hall’s rests on a rubble-stone foundation and its design includes rusticated stone cladding on the ground floor, a two-storey front section with an oriel window on the second floor and a one-storey stable at the rear.” 

Further, “Scottish born and trained brothers A.R. and W.N. Melville were responsible for the 1904 standard plans and for overseeing the construction of this hall. They were an influential partnership that began in the City around 1900 and lasted until just before World War I. They were responsible for the design of 10 fire halls and many fine local buildings.”

Vimy Ridge 6

Vimy Ridge 6

Vimy Ridge is a famous place and monument in France. It is dedicated to Canadians as they were able to take ground that was kept by the Germans in World War I. It was thought to be impenetrable and unbeatable and yet the Canadians did it. It was part of the Battle of Arras in the Pas-de-Calais Region of France. 

This monument is 30 meters high and was designed by Walter Seymour Allward. It was unveiled in 1936 by King Edward the VIII. It was restored in 2007. Did you know that when you are on those grounds, you are back in Canada? I love this series of photos that I took because to me, it means a great deal and I honour those soldiers who fought and lost their lives for our freedoms. 

This image is part of a series dedicated to Vimy Ridge. There are 14 in total. This is number 6. This is of the centre piece of the towers.

Golden Boy

Golden Boy

Here is a black and white photograph with all but the Golden Boy who is, of course, in gold. He is atop the Manitoba Legislature in the capital city of Winnipeg in the province of Manitoba, Canada. 

According the Manitoba Government website, he represents the Roman God Mercury or the Greek God Hermes. He represents eternal youth and the spirit of enterprise. He is a symbol of prosperity. He was installed on the dome on November 21, 1919.

String of Lights

This is a bridge in Tempe, Arizona with a string of white lights on it. It crosses the waterway and connects both sides of the Salt River. 

According to Wikipedia, “Tempe Town Lake is an artificial perennial reservoir located just north of Tempe Butte at the confluence of the intermittent Salt River and the ephemeral Indian Bend Wash in Tempe, Arizona. The reservoir receives much of its water from the Colorado River via the Central Arizona Project.”

Open Nature Concept

Open Nature Concept – Photography by Mary Mikawoz

Open Nature Concept

This is a photograph that I took to illustrate how the owners have an open nature concept in homes. From the window, you can see that nature has overtaken what is left of this building. Only a beam is left to hold up the back side of the house. 

I have always enjoyed the contrast between man and nature and am surprised how quickly nature takes over.

Still Standing

Still Standing – Photography by Mary Mikawoz

Still Standing

This is my photograph of an old building that is still up and about after all this time. It has been forgotten and left to rot on its own and yet I hear it say, “I’m Still Standing” by Elton John. 

His chorus goes like this: 

“Don’t you know I’m still standing better than I ever did 
Looking like a true survivor, feeling like a little kid 
I’m still standing after all this time 
Picking up the pieces of my life without you on my mind 

I’m still standing yeah yeah yeah 
I’m still standing yeah yeah yeah”

Roosevelt Reflection

Roosevelt Reflection – Photography by Mary Mikawoz

Roosevelt Reflection

I took this photograph of the Roosevelt Lake Bridge and caught it just when it was reflecting perfectly in the water. 

According to the history of the Roosevelt Lake Bridge, “The $21.3 million bridge was built to take traffic off the top of Roosevelt Dam. Roosevelt Lake Bridge is the longest two-lane, single-span, steel-arch bridge in North America. The bridge, spans 1,080 feet across Roosevelt Lake providing two-way traffic.”
