Great pictures. I particularly liked the last ones that capture the character of the varied housing in the West End. Thanks for posting this!

Awesome set of pics, you really captured Winnipeg well. If you were walking you sure got around. Great job.

you've covered more of the west end by foot than I ever have and I've had family around there for my entire life! thanks for your extensive cross-section photographical tour of my city! also liked how you captured some of the patio life that has been so elusive this year so far.

And I did this in 2.5 hours (that's all the time I had)

People think I'm crazy, but I've been to Winnipeg four times and I want to go back again. It's an old city with an endless grid of neighbourhoods. I think probably about three quarters of the city was built before WWII. It's really quite a fascinating city to explore.

Great pictures! I love when you cover different parts of Canada.

One constructive criticism that I have is that it would be nice to mention what pictures are from each neighborhood, for those of us unfamiliar with the city. I can figure out generally that the end is St. Boniface and the West End, and the beginning is Downtown, but it all kind of blends in to me. I also was hoping for an explanation of the neighborhoods (other than Downtown, at least), since you're maybe my favorite at showcasing interesting neighborhoods or towns.

I think this is mostly correct:

1st 2 are skyline shots
3-39 are Portage & Main area plus Exchange District
40-46 The Forks
47-49 St Boniface
50-55 Central Park neighbourhood
56-76 West End (mostly around Sargent Ave.)
