Feb was a brutal. After enjoying a couple of mild winters, we were hit with a real doozy. I dont think there was anyone living in Winnipeg who wasn’t depressed. So my camera rarely ventured out that month. I studied the works of Brassai, then got bummed that I live in Winnipeg and not Paris. There are no cobblestone roads here and the streetlamps are ugly. On the homefront, I ran a lego lunch club at the kids’ school, and read a fabulous book about midlife and marriage, called “The Rough Patch” by Daphne de Marneffe. Highly recommended. On a brighter note, the Manitoba Veterinary Medical Association asked me to document their annual general meeting. It was lovely to meet so many compassionate individuals who devote themselves to the care and well being of the animals they serve.
