Autumn in Winnipeg

fall-59

Change is a measure of time and in the autumn, time seems speeded up. What was is not and never again will be; what is is change.
– Edwin Way Teale

“Autumn burned brightly, a running flame through the mountains, a torch flung to the trees.”

Autumn is the mellower season, and what we lose in flowers we more than gain in fruits.  ~Samuel Butler

The recent Philippine disasters were a great testament of how much our climate is changing and will continue to change if we don’t start doing something about it.

Minneapolis Sculpture Garden

SculpturePark-2

Frank Gehry’s work here in 1986–the Standing Glass Fish has become a beloved icon in the Minneapolis’ cultural life. The figure of the fish—-a fond remembrance of the giant carp his Jewish grandmother would leave swimming in the bathtub each week to use for her Friday-night gefilte fish—has been a recurring motif in Gehry’s work. He has used it for his whimsical lamps, in the design for a conference room, and as a notational element in his architectural drawings.  Source

Spoonbridge and Cherry, 1985-1988

Created by Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen, the complex fabrication of the 5,800 pound spoon and 1,200 pound cherry was carried out at two shipbuilding yards in New England. The sculpture has become a beloved icon in the Garden, whether glaceed with snow in the Minnesota winters or gleaming in the warmer months, with water flowing over the surface of the cherry and a fine mist rising from its stem.  Source

Gorge Creek Trail

Here are some of the photos from the gorge creek trail at riding mountain. The experiences we had from the trail was unforgettable. Above is a photo of a mama bear paw. It was really big and there were little ones beside it which we assumed to be baby black bears. It was really a fresh trail when we saw it, we were both amazed and frightened at the same time. Below are some of my macro shots. Please enjoy, comment and rate. Thanks 😀
