Old Quebec

When I was a little kid, we had to drive long distances to visit relatives.  I used to wish there was a fast forward button so we could just get there.  On this rainy, dreary April Sunday afternoon, I would use that fast forward… Continue Reading “Old Quebec”

City Square Plaza

Regina’s City Square Plaza is a controversial space for a lot of different reasons – for me the three biggest are that it was massively over budget, cars and pedestrians share the space which in my opinion is a recipe for disaster, and the… Continue Reading “City Square Plaza”

the Leg. on a Saturday Afternoon

I took these pictures of the Legislative Building with my iPhone on Saturday after work. I haven’t taken a lot of pics this winter, but now that the days are getting longer and the temperature is getting warmer, I’m starting to come out of… Continue Reading “the Leg. on a Saturday Afternoon”

rooftops

I went out on my balcony this morning (it was only about -6 outside, so not too bad!) and got this shot.  I’m quite happy with the way it turned out and how the brick on the First Baptist Church (foreground) and Knox-Metropolitan United… Continue Reading “rooftops”

Queen Elizabeth II Gardens

The Queen Elizabeth II Gardens in front of the Legislative Building in Regina re-opened on the weekend after a $1 million renovation.  I love the Leg. – I think it’s a beautiful building (although I certainly don’t love the governing party that is inhabiting… Continue Reading “Queen Elizabeth II Gardens”

Summers Are for Road Trips – Montreal Edition

One full day in Montreal is obviously not enough time to even scratch the surface of all the sights in the city.  Most of the pictures I took are from Place d’Armes (including Notre Dame Basilica), Old Montreal and a few while wandering downtown.… Continue Reading “Summers Are for Road Trips – Montreal Edition”

no, it’s not snow

Sure looks like snow on the first day of summer, but we had quite a bit of hail and rain here early in the evening.  I snapped a few quick pics with my iphone out the back door of the library – there was… Continue Reading “no, it’s not snow”
