Photo Submissions & Their Stories


1 & 2: These two photos were captured in Santiago, Chile a few years ago when I was visiting my son and his family there. His kids have dual citizenship, and he makes sure they are proud of their Canadian heritage. On Canada Day his entire Chilean family comes to celebrate that side of their family. I love the one of little Joaquín - it looks like Bonhomme de Neige is peeking over his shoulder!

3. The Alloway Arch and Esplanade Riel

The Alloway Arch at The Forks was constructed from the facade of the original Alloway and Champion Bank. It honours William Forbes Alloway, who established The Winnipeg Foundation in 1921. The Esplanade Riel pedestrian bridge, named in honour of Louis Riel, connects The Forks to Winnipeg’s French Quarter.

4. Walking on a beautiful autumn day in a local park, found an almost perfect maple leaf, so arranged the picture accordingly.

5. Beautiful sunset at Shoal Lake during a recent camping trip.

6. Kildonan Park on a sunny day
