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.”

Roosevelt Dam

Roosevelt Dam – Photography by Mary Mikawoz

Roosevelt Dam

I took this photograph on the inside curve of the Roosevelt Dam. I like the angle of nature on of cliffs on the side and the curved, concrete dam in the middle. 

According to Wikipedia, “Theodore Roosevelt Lake is a large reservoir formed by Theodore Roosevelt Dam on the Salt River in Arizona as part of the Salt River Project. Located roughly 80 miles northeast of Phoenix in the Salt River Valley, Theodore Roosevelt is the largest lake or reservoir located entirely within the state of Arizona.”

In the Distance

In the Distance

This is a photograph where it leads your eye along the concrete wall, across the waters to the bridge in the distance. This image was taking at sunset in Tempeh, Arizona, USA. 

I have called it “In the Distance” as it leads your attention into the distance.

Alberta Legislature Building

Alberta Legislature Building

The Alberta Legislature is found in Edmonton. According to Wikipedia, “The Alberta Legislature Building was built between 1907 and 1913 in the Beaux Arts style at the same time as the much larger Saskatchewan and Manitoba legislative buildings by architects Allan Merrick Jeffers and Richard Blakey. Montreal architect Percy Nobbs helped with the final revisions.”
