THE GREAT ICE SHOW, Winnipeg's Winter Wonderland, opened January 25, 2016.The ice sculptures were created by fifty specially trained Chinese ice artisans. Sculptures include life-size dinosaurs, an ice replica of Manitoba’s legislative building, huge sliding toboggan runs, an igloo and dozens of smaller sculptures of various wildlife, etc. The pilot project, The Great Ice Show, is the brainchild of Paul Kostas, the owner of Humphry Inn & Suites, Andy Zhao, general manager at the Hampton Inn by Hilton Winnipeg Airport, and Vivian Jiao of Humphry Inn & Suites. The Great Ice Show will run as long as the ice can be maintained intact. Have a look at some of my images.

"We all have a book inside us waiting to be written".
I am presenting 'The Art of Making A Book' for a second time on Thursday, February 11, 2016 at McNally Robinson Booksellers from 7:00 - 9:00 PM. The first presentation on October 9, 2015 was a resounding success and a full house so we decided that we would offer the presentation again in 2016 using names from a waiting list to begin. Space is limited and we now have only 8 seats left as of this morning!
Donovan Bergman of Friesens will be joining me to discuss everything you want to know about making a book. It will also include a Q&A. The event is sponsored by Friesens, The Manitoba Photo Friends and FlashFest (Winnipeg's Annual Photography Festival).
