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.

Wandering Dude

Wandering Dude

I spent the very last day possible at the Conservatory at Assiniboine Park. I literally stayed until they closed up not only for the day but also the life of the conservatory to the public. Why? Because I have very fond memories from many years of visiting when we or I used to go there and enjoy the lush trees, plants and flowers. I would particularly go in winter time to get a break from the white, blustery snow and see beautiful greenery in the warm and humid environment. 

Some of my fondest photographs are of my immediate and extended family, some of whom, are no longer with us in physical form, and they graced their presence on this Earth by being in the conservatory. Back in the day, there were black and white photographs that were developed with film and you had to wait a very long period of time for them to be developed in the lab before seeing what you had accomplished with your camera. 

This is a photograph I took of a “Wandering Dude” or Tradescantia zebrina or Inch Plant amongst the brick work. It is a houseplant that has trailing vines and is often used in hanging baskets.

Fleurs Blanches

Fleurs Blanches

These are beautiful white flowers or Fleurs Blanches found in the old Conservatory Building at Assiniboine Park. The building is no longer there and has been demolished. I hope the plants found a good new home. 

This photograph has Asiatic Lilies and Arum Lilies being showcased. They are exquisite in their elegance and perfection.  They are romantic.

They were situated in a spot that many people would walk by and not even notice them but they definitely caught my eye. The Asiatic Lilies look as if there are multiple trumpets sounding off in all the directions.

Canada Goose Fountain

Canada Goose Fountain

I like the Canada Geese playing and frolicking in front of the fountain. I have made it black and white to make it more interesting. This picture was taken only a few weeks ago but the fountain has been already closed down due to dropping temperatures and because of the recent snow already. 

There were still Canada geese at the Duck Pond in Assiniboine Park yesterday when I went for my walk. I do not know why the few stragglers have not flown south for the winter. They should be going soon.

Moses

This is a photograph I took of a statue of Moses in the winter time at Assiniboine Park in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. It was made by Leo Mol. I like the way the snow has highlighted the figure. 

Leonid Molodozhanyn or Leo Mol, as he was known, was a Ukrainian-Canadian sculptor, stained-glass artist and painter. 

According to the Assiniboine Park website, “Mol created his sculptures using the Lost Wax method. In this process, clay is modeled on a rebar and wood structure then covered in liquid rubber to form a mold. Plaster is layered over the mold, creating a cast. The cast and mold are separated from the model and melted beeswax is pressed into the rubber mold. A cement mixture is then poured inside the wax layer. After the cement hardens the molds are removed, leaving a wax model with a solid cement core.”

These oak trees are the most perfect element in the beautiful autumn sky behind them. This photograph was taken at Assiniboine Park near the previous Conservatory in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. The seasons continue to change and with it comes renewed hope as we enter Spring.

Keen Sense

Keen Sense

This beautiful and incredible mammal is reposing and relaxing on the green grass along some boulders. It was taken at the Assiniboine Park Zoo in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

According to the Internet,”Polar bears have a keen sense of smell, which they use to find prey. A polar bear can sniff out a seal on the ice 20 miles (32 kilometers) away, and can smell a seal’s breathing hole in the ice more than half a mile away, according to the National Zoo.”

Fountain And Ducks

I actually took this photo a decade ago. The lush green algae has covered the pond which affectionately is known as the skating pond in winter time at Assiniboine Park, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. It is technically called the Riley Family Duck Pond and is situated close to the Pavilion and also the Qualico Family Centre.

This is an autumn picture of the Pavilion and Duck Pond at Assiniboine Park in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. The Canada Geese are on their migratory route south at this time of year. “Canada geese fly in a distinctive V-shaped flight formation, with an altitude of 1 km (3,000 feet) for migration flight. The maximum flight ceiling of Canada geese is unknown, but they have been reported at 9 km (29,000 feet).”(Wikipedia)
