a walk around Wascana Lake

For a flat prairie city, plunked in the middle of nowhere, Regina is actually a very pretty city. When I moved here many years ago I certainly didn’t think it was, and didn’t plan to stay very long, but this is my home now. Wascana Park is one of my favourite places in Regina.  I took most of these towards the end of a walk around the lake (I was walking for exercise, too, not just picture taking opportunities, so I had to keep the momentum going!)…well and the sun was setting, too, so the walk was timed perfectly…

These were all taken in about a half hour time span. I love how the colours changed in that short period of time (they are posted in the order that I took them).

I was walking through Victoria Park on my supper break the other day and happened upon this scene.  These were taken with my iPhone and I planned to to take my Nikon to work the next day since my supper break was at the same time and try to capture some better images.  It was cloudy and grey the next day so I guess that’s a reminder to try to take the best shot you can when you’re in the moment!

colours of fall

These are mostly pictures I took this morning. I went for a walk, not really planning what I wanted to take pictures of and found a tree with brilliant red leaves. That inspired me to try to get enough pictures to do a “colours of fall” post.  When you really look at your surroundings, beauty can be found all around.

Neighbourhood Walk Part 2

My favourite building in Regina

Land Titles Building (home of the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame)

Knox Metropolitan United Church

The Balfour (condos/apartments)

front entrance of the Hotel Saskatchewan

Central Park

All of these sights are in my neighbourhood.  I’ve lived in Regina for a long time now, and I’ve never really thought of it as a pretty city. (I think I may have said this in a post a few months ago, too!)   I appreciate many of the things the city has to offer, but since I’ve started to get into photography a bit more, it’s given me the chance to see the city in a different way.  There actually are a lot of interesting places in Regina.  (Now if it only it were a bit closer to the ocean!)
