I'm in Wpg
Long story but I flew to Wpg this morning and had some time with our son Mark so we went down to the The Forks to see if we could get some photos. It is a pretty happening place. Unfortunately the very strong winds kept us indoor..... and also kept David on the highways in whiteout conditions but he did make it safely for which I am thankful.
Met Nick owner and chief cook at Bella Casa. mmmm It smelled so good there and Nick wanted to know what magazine we were shooting for. :) He gave Mark and I a free sample of his work and it was incredibly delicious. If you are ever at the Forks, head indoors and look for Casa Bella.
Mark chose the strawberry. I chose the lemon - decadence!
Below is the upper opening to a teepee I wondered into to get out of the wind. I know nothing about teepees except there was no wind in there.
I am reading a great photography book right now by David duChenin - a Canadian photographer of note!
I have learned from David duChemin's book that the best approach is to engage people, get to know them and what they do and then ask permission. I found this came very naturally for me. Nick was more then happy to pose for us and talk about his great creations. And treat us!
Nick takes his profession seriously. His food is not only delicious, but beautiful. Wish we had more time to photograph all his wonderful desserts. You can read about Cassa Bella at The Forks HERE
This shot below was taken from the Assiniboine River just before it meets up with the Red. I took a similar photo last summer when the water was so high a boat almost didn't fit under the second bridge. Try to imagine that. You can see that top water line. My only wish for this photo would have been to have a couple of kids playing hockey on the ice.
