On my way up to photograph the Canadian Museum for Human Rights from the balcony at the new Prairie 360 revolving restaurant in Winnipeg, I noticed the shrivelled leaves of vines hanging from the limestone off the first floor of the building. Just a few weeks ago, the leaves would have been alive with saturated color. Now, the color had mostly disappeared and the leaves had shrivelled and dried. I have always been attracted to this sort of muted color which tends to dominate in the seasons 'between fall and winter' and again 'between winter and spring'. I enhanced the nostalic look by bringing the image into an App called 'Vintage Scene' in which I overlayed a subtle texture and frame. The scene reminded me of my very first print exhibition called 'Subtle Images' which hung in Edmonton in the early 1980s.
