Light My Way – Photography by Mary Mikawoz – Click on image or link to see the bigger picture.

One summer day, I was waiting for some people in downtown Winnipeg when I looked up and felt like I could not help but admire the city lights and the buildings. The lamp highlights the city that I call home.

Somehow even with one of the coldest temperatures in winter for a large size city, it is a delightful and friendly place with a population of about 750,000 people. Yes, that many people call it home. There are colder cities in the world but if I am correct, none have so many people living in them.

This photograph was taken beside the City of Winnipeg Police Station and features both older and newer architecture. It is not too far from the famous windy corner of Portage Avenue and Main Street. I hope you enjoy this unique view.

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.

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.”
