I am going to make an attempt to participate In Nancy Merrill’s photography challenge for 2017. You can read about the challenge here. Basically, she comes up with a theme and posts a photo that she think fits the theme on each Thursday. My task(as well as others following her meme) is to interpret her theme and post a photograph that I think fits the theme before the following Thursday, when a new theme is started.
This week’s theme is “History”. Again, perfect for me…since I just went on a walking tour called “The Older Than Dirt Walk” that was billed as a fun stroll through historical landmarks. The walk started at the Forks and took us through the Alloway Arch and past the Widow’s Mite fountain. William Alloway established the Winnipeg Foundation in 1921(he was a banker) and made the first donation to the foundation. The second donation was from an anonymous donor, 3 gold coins in an envelope bearing the words “The Widow’s Mite”. More information on the story/history can be found here. The three streams of water in the fountain are said to represent the 3 gold coins:
This photo was taken with my cell phone and a slow shutter app…which explains the bubbly water and the streaking cars on the street beyond.
