The Leg

The Leg

This is the Leg – pronounced as “The Ledge” or the Legislature. It is the Manitoba Legislature found in the city of Winnipeg in the province of Manitoba in the country of Canada. 

This is the back side of the legislature facing from the Red River. It showcases a wonderful fountain and the beautiful architectural structure of this building. 

According to the Manitoba government website, “The Legislative Assembly is an independent entity, separate from the Government of Manitoba. The 57 Members of the Assembly are elected in single-member constituencies to represent the people of Manitoba.” 

Further to that, “Manitoba’s Legislative Building is reputed to be one of the most impressive public buildings in North America.”

CN Tower

CN Tower

I have been to Toronto to see and be on the CN Tower numerous times especially when I lived out in Eastern Canada. 

According to Wikipedia, “The CN Tower (French: Tour CN) is a 553.3 meters high or (1,815.3 feet high) concrete communications and observation tower located in Downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Built on the former Railway Lands, it was completed in 1976. Its name “CN” originally referred to Canadian National, the railway company that built the tower. Following the railway’s decision to divest non-core freight railway assets prior to the company’s privatization in 1995, it transferred the tower to the Canada Lands Company, a federal Crown corporation responsible for real estate development.” 

I have added a coloured effect to make the structure more interesting and seen from a different perspective.

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.”

Blocked

I took this photograph of an old, derelict house that has had its window blocked by overgrown trees and plants. I have always been amazed how quickly nature overtakes what man has built once it has been abandoned. It is a testament to the strength, power and resiliency of Mother Earth.

Beaver Dam

Beaver Dam

The basis of this is a photograph I took at Elk Island National Park near Edmonton, Alberta. They have a number of hikes and walkways. This is the walkway going through the swamp area. There was this finely built architectural featured called a beaver dam on the left-hand side of the swamp. 

I once saw and was in a replica beaver dam at the Manitoba Children’s Museum in Winnipeg, Manitoba. It was absolutely fascinating how the beavers build their homes.

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.”

Recaptured Life

Recaptured Life

The house is abandoned and you can see from the open window right through the house to the open door.

It is weathered and worn while nature in its greenery has started to grow back and recapture life in the prairies. In fact, I think clover has started to grow in the recesses of the wood.

Onwards We Go

There comes a time in our journey when we must face the decision to go over the bridge or turn back and choose another direction. It is time to go over the bridge into the future. Here we go onwards on the path of life.

This is the bridge in the Japanese Gardens in Queen Elizabeth Park in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Bloedel Roof

This is a black and white photograph I took of the roof of Bloedel Conservatory found at Queen Elizabeth Park in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

I like the geometric design in the roof which is complimented by the plant life.

According to the Vancouver Parks and Recreation website: “More than 120 free-flying exotic birds, 500 exotic plants and flowers thrive within its temperature-controlled environment.”
