    'Inglis Prairie Giants' - Manitoba Series (Notecard and Photographic Print)

    Inglis, Manitoba is home to the Five Prairie Giants – the Inglis Elevators. These prairie sentinels are preserved as the Inglis Grain Elevators National Historic Site. The elevators preserved are the Paterson elevator, the National elevator, the United Grain Growers elevator and two Reliance elevators. These five original elevators were built in 1922, the year the railway was established in the town of Inglis.

    This site represents one of the most important periods in the development of the Canadian grain industry. Rows of these iconic architectural symbols of the Prairies were prominently seen in most prairie towns but many have now disappeared. Of the nearly 6,000 grain elevators that once towered over the Canadian Prairie, only about 850 grain elevators remain.

    'Whiteshell Provincial Park' - Manitoba Series (Notecard and Photographic Print)

    The Canadian Shield, nearly four billion years old, covers the eastern and northern part of Manitoba. Along the Ontario border to the southeast of the province is located Whiteshell Provincial Park. It is an area of many lakes, rivers, forests and wildlife. In fact, Manitoba is known as the land of 100,000 lakes.

    The area is also highly prized as cottage country where folks relax and enjoy hiking, canoeing, boating and winter sports. As summer progresses and the air cools in the evenings, the warmer waters dissipate fog that rises golden in the morning sun, creating a most serene and peaceful place.

    It was a privilege to be interviewed recently by Vincent Dureau of Radio-Canada (French CBC) about my work and the road I have traveled to get to this stage in my life. Coincidentally, Vincent was also born near Sudbury, in a little village called Levac.

    If you have a few moments from your busy schedule, grab a cup of coffee (or glass of wine!) and listen to the hour-long interview en Francais. Un grand merci a Vincent et Radio-Canada!

    'Canadian Museum For Human Rights' - Manitoba Series (Notecard and Photographic Print)

    The Canadian Museum For Human Rights finally opened to the public today on September 20, 2014!

    The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is an architectural wonder designed by American architect Antoine Predock. He was inspired by Canadian landscapes such as the vast prairie skies, northern lights, snow and ice, as well as Canadian cultures, including Indigenous cultures. The form of the building was also influenced by images of icebergs, tree roots and out-stretched wings. This national and international destination was established to explore the issue of human rights, focusing on the evolution, celebration and future of human rights. The Museum was built in Winnipeg, Manitoba, the first such national museum to be built outside the National Capital Region in nearly half a century. A Canadian postage stamp was issued to commemorate the opening of the Museum in September of 2014.

    PS: I was fortunate to be commissioned to produce the 'two' images on the postage stamp, including the images for the First Day Issue Envelope and the stamp Booklet.

    'Winnipeg Skyline at Sunrise' - Manitoba Series (Notecard and Photographic Print)

    "The Winnipeg skyline, seen from the east, features two iconic architectural structures: the Canadian Museum For Human Rights, designed by American architect Antoine Predock and the Esplanade Riel pedestrian bridge designed by Winnipeg architect Étienne Gaboury. The bridge crosses the Red River and connects downtown Winnipeg and Saint-Boniface, Canada’s largest French speaking community beyond Quebec.

    The ‘Belt of Venus’, an atmospheric phenomenon seen just before sunrise or after sunset, glows bright pink above the darker blue layer known as the ‘Earth’s Shadow’. This pink glow, also known as an ‘anti-twilight arch’, extends some 10-20 degrees above the horizon and is caused by a backscattering of reddish light from the rising or setting sun".
