I'm a self taught graphic artist. I originally started out many years ago as a traditional artist with painting, illustrating and making models from scractch. I built props and miniatures for a few years for low budget film companies and when computers began taking over the industry I knew it was time to learn the digital world... lol... I learned it the hard way to with no professional instruction. Surprised me even more when a few years later I was asked to teach Photoshop at two of our top Community Colleges here in Winnipeg. Because I love making models so much I eventually got into 3D and now have a huge collection of models available on Turbosquid under Visual Redemption which is also the name of my personal company for custom graphic design. I have created book cover art, and much of my work has been published in magazines and books. I have a fond interest in subjects like science fiction, Gothic horror, UFOs & the Paranormal all of which have profound influences on my work. Everyday I like to go for a run down the Waterfront Drive trail all the way to the Forks, it's great excercise. On weekends I like to either go for a bike ride all the way out to Assiniboine Park or a walk out to grant or polo Park to check out a movie, or just plain out for a walk, I find it's a good offset from being in front of a computer all day and I love being outside when it's nice out... and then there is the odd time I for no particular reason will just like to go for a walk in the rain. I love being outdoors, I'll often take my camera with me because you never know when you will see something that just begs to be photographed. I usually try to take abstract photos because I love seeing things from different perspectives. I enjoy nature very much. I love to swim but don't often get the chance. Walking, running and bike riding are 3 of my greatest passions next to my artwork. My firends say that I'm a Happy Go Lucky kinda guy... lol whatever that means, I just try not to sweat the small stuff and then it's all small stuff, Water off a Duck metality I guess ;) Of course some of those same friends think I'm a bit of a Whack Job because I'm interested in UFOs. I have a typical British sence of humor being born in Bristole England so it's pretty much in my blood. I love to cook and my favorite meal is my special home made Shepherds Pie that I make from scratch :P

What a treasure! A lovely photo. I never knew this place existed. Thank you for sharing. MK

nice bike route time for a new bridge

A North American Harvard - the basic pilot training aircraft after WWII until the introduction of the Tutor.

For those interested, the rail line is the La Riviere subdivision of CP Rail, though this stretch is also used by the Burlington Northern Santa Fe - BNSF.

lol he sure does, in factt I don't think the Toad would be the same without good'ol Desmond there ;)

Is my memory slipping or was the footbridge to the west of the train bridge installed more recently than 10 years ago? This is very close to the tennis courts with a thousand cracks in the pavement, right? And look at those clouds. Perfect Winnipeg sky. Thanks!

There we are. The broad boulevard down the middle of Wellington brings a peaceful feeling. Thanks!

Our father used to take us kids here to get our hair cut. It's been more than 30 years and the original owner "Mike" has long since passed away but the shop continues to be run by his son.

Thank you very much and salutations from Winnipeg Manitoba :D
