Festival time is almost upon us again my friends and I know how much all of you like my photos of all the festivities that run and all the snow sculptures that are carved lovingly during it’s annual February run.
So once again here’s a sneak peek at some of the work going on around town to get St. Boniface in a Hé Ho frame of mind. Some of these pictures are continuations of works that had begun last week in my “A day in the life” photo journal and from “60 years on a hard throne“.
The Royal Canadian Mint
- Here at the mint work has been completed on the Winnipeg Jets Logo Coin.
- Here’s the flip side of the coin. A bison standing in relief. Sadly facing due south so a great deal of the definition has been removed by our unseasonable temperatures.
- Some goofball standing in my shot.

It’s mid-summer in Winnipeg as I write this and the past is meeting the present while building for the future of the human race. Since my last post about the Canadian Museum for Human Rights many things have taken place. Firstly, construction of the museum has progressed steadily, so much that one can get a true sense of the enormous scale of the finished glass mountain on the prairies. The idea being a visual representation of what man can attain when he aspires to a noble cause.
Starting in St. Boniface, Alanna is ready to answer tourists questions.
Walking over the Red River, the Size of the Buildings will be Enormous.
Up Close to the Building Site.
