The Exchange (part of a series)

doorI’m finished. I plowed through and completed all of my marking, and recorded final grades for all of my classes. My first year as a teacher is over, and, starting very soon, my summer vacation will begin. Can you see me dancing?

To celebrate the return of that completely foreign concept over the past ten months known as “personal time”, on the way home I shot some photos of the area that the campus is located in, called The Exchange District.

I think this will be the beginning of a series, as the Exchange is teeming with photographic opportunities. Unlike Toronto and some of the other larger cities that have torn down a lot of their older architecture, Winnipeg has maintained the Exchange in much the same way it looked over a hundred years ago. This is one of the major reasons why film companies shoot here so often (like the currently in production Jennifer Lopez / Richard Gere movie, Shall We Dance) - it’s fairly easy to make the area look like Chicago, or recreate some turn-of-the-century city.

Go and check them out. It’s not much, but it’s a start… and it’s good to get back to shooting.
