American Woman

“American Woman” was a huge hit, and “The Guess Who” was from Winnipeg. That was before Lenny Kravitz gave it new breath.

Tagging is rare in Winnipeg, but a black door in a Graf Mural is a target….

…and what’s that neat green fringe emanating from the rear-view mirror?

Uch, then Sherrie caught me making an asp out of myself when I went in for the shot

I Knew I Wasn’t Drunk!

285 Smith Street

MURAL OF THE YEAR 2003

Artist: Charlie Johnston (C5 Artworks)
Artist: Charlie Johnston (C5 Artworks)

 I felt dizzy ….  woozy and I knew I wasn’t drunk.

I suddenly realized it was the horizon. I used my zoom, and reeled the area in. It was a building painted on a building, The St. Regis Hotel – 1911. The sky line was insane.

Artist: Charlie Johnston (C5 Artworks)
Artist: Charlie Johnston (C5 Artworks)

There was construction pounding at the base of the building and a jammed half-block long parking lot. So I went back on a Sunday.
