Canadian Silhouettes

I just spent the weekend in Winnipeg, Manitoba in Canada. It was a personal trip, not a photography one. Of course the camera is never left behind, but during those trips I only grab a shot here and there without taking too much of my precious family time. Since I just returned from Italy and I am heading to Paris shortly, I wasn’t yet suffering from photography withdrawal. But I enjoyed focussing my attention on capturing silhouettes and collected these few images…

First I grabbed this iPhone shot through the car windshield while driving on the highway (no worries, I was in the passenger seat).

The first evening we explored an area of Winnipeg called The Forks, the light under the railroad tracks made for some really cool contrasty images.

While visiting the amazing Canadian Museum for Human Rights, I spotted a few more interesting silhouettes.

Did I mention that I was staying at the famously haunted 100-year-old Fort Garry Hotel? No ghost sightings but this gentleman seemed to have stepped out of a different era when I saw him waiting for the old elevator.

I hope you enjoyed this series of Canadian silhouettes. Please leave a comment. Thank you!
