snow moving in

Some images from October 2020.

This was quite the view from my 25th floor apartment. Directly in front of the snow was falling while to the west the sun was shining and highlighting the building in downtown Winnipeg. I was hoping for a rainbow but that event never happened.

Another image from a random selection of pictures I send to my brother and which were taken during the month of October 2020. My view of Winnipeg to my brother.

There are a number of viewing areas of the polar bears in the Journey to Churchill exhibit... one being their pool while the other ones are open areas such as where I found this polar bear basking in the morning sun. I liked this particular shot because one can see the eye of the polar bear.

A 30-foot sculptural piece created from 1,254 bicycles by internationally acclaimed artist and activist Ai Weiwei.

Titled Forever Bicycles, the sculpture alludes to the bikes that flooded the streets of China, Ai's home country, during his childhood. Despite their seeming omnipresence, bicycles remained financially out of reach for many, including Ai's family.

In the past year the sculpture has become the backdrop for many photographs from selfie to group images such as these individuals who were enjoying themselves and recording their fun.

The OP reflects our weather this morning, the cars have been dusted
with snow last night, more snow coming later tonight )-;

How far away from the Polar Bear are you Jan ?

The bicycle exhibition is amazing. I wonder if it creates and sound
when the wind blows through them.

Just sharing an answer to Steve's two questions.

I would say that I'm about 10 feet from the bear over a small pool with rocks on the far side of the pool.

I've passed the bicycle exhibit in windy weather and I've never heard any sound coming from them... in fact I've stood right under the bicycles and nothing.

Your OP is the kind of weather that's possibly in the works for us tomorrow...bbbrrr. We just had our winter tires put on a couple of days ago.

Nice photo of the polar bear who is probably looking forward to snow...bbbrrr.

Your photo of bikes has a clever elusion making one think the photo is blurry which is not of course. Nice capture with the people in the photo.
