A walk home in Winnipeg

Walking home, May evening, Winnipeg.

After too many years, I recently made a trip home to Winnipeg. In between sorting boxes of my childhood books and looking at old photos with my mother and godmother, I went out with my sister and revisited old haunts. Walking home from Bar Italia on Corydon Avenue one evening, I took these photos. Being obsessed by Magritte lately, I’ve had my head and eyes in the clouds. And nowhere are the skies more beautiful than on the prairies. Here are a few unretouched, unfiltered photos taken while walking home on a crystal-clear evening, in Winnipeg, in May.


A light left on for me at home.
