One of the nicer buildings downtown is owned by Canwest Global, a large media company that is headquartered in Winnipeg. It's a standard modern concrete and glass building, but it was designed with a nice combination of straight and curved elements that provide some nice views.
This is the view from across Portage Avenue. The flags at the bottom of the frame run along the first block or so of Portage Avenue, and I couldn't quite frame them the way I would have liked. Still it's my first good architecture/building shot.
This is the aspect of the building you see from Portage and Main. I want to kill whatever yahoo decided to run a power line across the front of the building. I would really love this shot if it wasn't there, and frankly, I don't have the post-processing software or knowledge to remove it. Boo.
One more shot from my walk-around:
Let me put it to you this way: If a surface downtown can be stapled, it will be stapled. I think this is the case for any downtown, but there are few such places in the heart of downtown, so those that do exist get billed and tagged a lot.
Not my best week of shooting overall. A bit of a letdown after the zoo, but they can't all be great weeks.
