A couple weekends ago I was taking in an annual Winnipeg event, Doors Open, which lets you see historical buildings, museums and tours free of charge.

The Human Rights Museum had a "behind-the-scenes" tour, taking you to sections of the museum you'd normally not have a chance to see. This is the 6th National Museum in Canada (opened in Sept. 2014), and already it has an impressive 35 awards & honours under its belt, including several for architecture and design.

 

Below are interior pictures I took a few years ago.

Winnipeg, Manitoba. Canadian Museum for Human Rights. Canada Day, 2017.

The museum has been set up to explore human rights, not necessarily in Canada alone. Its the first national museum outside the capital, in the Forks area of Winnipeg. I like the flags fluttering in the wind.

The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is certainly a gem of a building. Located in downtown Winnipeg, it is a must see when you are in the city.

Human Rights Monument in Ottawa

Monument at the entrance of the Council of Europe

''Droits de l'Homme'' by Mariano Gonzalez Beltran

 

After all what humanity lived through, we still cannot take at least these rights as guaranteed. Not inside Europe, where several countries try to institutionalise dictatorships, and even less outside. We need to stand up for it. This monument was a gift of Spain in 2007. The current government renewed with the statement of its gift by accepting a boat full of people that never have known humane rights and cannot take this abuse any more. I am very proud of Spain and ashamed of all others who put their on priorities first.

Happy Human Rights Day!

 

I stopped in near Point Yacht Club and Wilson's Wharf: Photo Shoot Lookout this morning before meeting up with McCoovane Xulu at Moyo Ushaka.

 

The destitute are still sleeping in the open and the green railing between John Dorys Fish, Grill, Sushi. - Wilsons Wharf and Royal Natal Yacht Club is still broken, but who cares anyway... Happy Human Rights Day!

 

If you hold the purse strings in any city is it that hard to stop that BMW X8 for just a minute, call a contractor to fix something and do something else for the poor?

 

Anyway, back to the beach... The hot cuppa at Coffee Guys was splendid as usual this morning after sunrise.

 

Tomorrow is another chance to enjoy your work, have fun and crank your gears - go from 2nd to 5th!

 

Rugby is coming up as well, although we have to wait a few games for another match at Kings Park Stadium.

 

On that note, Durban Tourism please note that Irene and I, plus some other key individuals, are available to attend at your rugby box on Saturday, 14 Apr, 17:15 to market our City. I saw the box was completely empty at the last game I attended.

The Way of Human Rights (German: Straße der Menschenrechte) is a monumental outdoor sculpture in Nuremberg, Germany.

 

It was opened on 24 October 1993. It is sited on the street between the new and old buildings of the Germanisches Nationalmuseum, connecting Kornmarkt street and the medieval city wall.

In 1988, a twelve-person jury from the Germanisches Nationalmuseum held a design competition to decide on the artistic design of the Kartäusergasse street in Nuremberg. The winner was a proposal by Israeli artist Dani Karavan consisting of a gate, 27 round pillars made of white concrete, two pillars buried in the ground showing only a round plate, and one columnar oak, for a total of 30 pillars. Engraved in each pillar is one article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in German and another language. The pillars are 8 metres in height, 80 cm in diameter, and spaced regularly at 5 metres along an axis. The north gate mirrors the medieval city gate located at the south end of the street.

The site of project has a layered history, including the remnants of a monastery, the medieval city wall, buildings designed by Sep Ruf in the 1950s and 1960s, and a glass-enclosed entrance designed by the firm ME DI UM in 1993.

This sculpture is part of Nuremberg's efforts to shake off its Nazi-era reputation as the "City of the Party Rallies" and reinvent itself as a "City of Peace and Human Rights". In 2001, Nuremberg was honored for this attempt at transformation with the UNESCO Prize for Human Rights Education, the Way of Human Rights being specifically cited. The monument is intended as both a repudiation of past crimes and a permanent reminder that human rights are still regularly violated. Nuremberg's prize for human rights, the Nuremberg International Human Rights Award, is awarded on the site every two years. (Wikipedia)

Today, May 9th. 2020 I was on the road again to take pictures. I wanted to capture the atmosphere that happened on that day in a natural and honest way. Some of my snapshots I had to take from the hip. I am not always interested in the perfect composition but more in capturing the moment of the event. Many people had demonstrated today in front of the city hall and gathered in the city of Munich to claim for their basic rights, human rights, freedom of speech and the right to move freely. The demonstration was very peaceful and even more energetic filled with the power and self-confidence of change.Different nations, cultures, old and young, politically mixed opinions of different kinds. All agreed on one thing.....FREEDOM......the right to live in PEACE.....and the right to be INCORPORATE...

 

I believe in a peaceful life together. No matter what culture, political views or different ways of life we are attracted to. The key to LOVE, PEACE, JOY, FREEDOM, HEALING, HARMONY and HAPPINESS is respect, tolerance and willingness to do so.

 

In peace,

Richard 🙏

The Canadian Museum for Human Rights was conceived by Israel Asper, a member of Winnipeg’s Jewish Community. The museum opened in September 2014 and focuses on the development and enactment of human rights in Canada and around the world. On my 2 ½ hour visit it appeared that human rights issues that are painful to Canadians (the treatment of First Nations), or politically unpopular (migrant worker rights, organized labour) are addressed with honesty and fairness.

The building was designed by Antoine Predock. He envisioned the museum as a journey, beginning with a descent into the earth where visitors enter through the “roots” of the museum. Visitors are led through the Great Hall, then a series of vast spaces and ramps, before culminating in the Tower of Hope. The ramps offer time to reflect upon exhibits just visited, and are framed with illuminated alabaster, representing likely not simply ascent but also hope.

See: www.thecanadianencyclopedia.ca/en/article/canadian-museum...

My images are more or less snapshots but I am posting them for the architectural and cultural value the museum represents. A better collection of images can be found here:

The Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR) is a national museum in Winnipeg, Manitoba, located adjacent to The Forks.

It opened in September 2014.

The purpose of the museum is to 'study the subject of human rights with a special but not exclusive reference to Canada, in order to enhance the public's understanding of human rights, to promote respect for others and to encourage reflection and dialogue'.

In 2003, the Friends of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights launched an international architectural competition for the design of the CMHR. Out of 100 submissions from 21 countries worldwide, the judging panel chose the design submitted by Antoine Predock, an architect from Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA.

this was a project for a friend who is teaching a college course this summer. this will be the banner of her class webpage. the hand on top is our daughter. the hands below are Velma's, one of our favorite people from K's hospital. thanks Velma! thanks little E! =)

 

i shot this yesterday with the canon powershot using the hack that lets me keep the RAW file. converted to grayscale with a trial version of Lightroom, and exported as a jpeg. then i brought it into GIMP, cut away the background (their knees, the hospital floor, etc), set the background to black, sharpened, adjusted tones, and added the text.

 

the "lighting" in the photo is created mostly after the fact. we were in a hospital with the abhorrent fluorescent glow -- and i know nothing about flash, and my camera doesn't support off-camera flash anyhow. we did stay close to a large window to get as much natural light as possible despite the cloudy, overcast skies.

(note for ODC'ers -- i've broken my own "rule" here as i meant the challenge to be powerful even without words. i'm taking so few shots this summer so far i've decided to practice non-violence towards myself on this one and not beat myself up too much about it.)

Human rights museum & Esplanade Riel in oil paint, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. The museum opening day, raining all day and evening.

I got on the location an hour before the sunset to find a good place thinking there is gonna be lots of people shooting. To my surprise only one fellow was on east side of the river. As advertised the museum interior lights were to be switched on for the first time, and I have been planing this for a year. As I set up my composition the rain started again so I had to pack up. It stopped about 20 min later as the sun just sat. My idea is to shoot for about an hour with different long exposure settings and wait for the ambient light to balance with the cityscape. To my bad luck the interior lights were never switched on and on the outside there was big flood light that was lighting the south east part of the building which made it impossible to shoot when the ambient light became the best. So this is the very first shot I took with 9 stop ND filter. Second one was done while raining so the reflection of colours in the water disappeared. Everything after that was pretty much useless with a single exposure and I so didn't wanna do HDR. So there is an oil paint effect just 'cause I can.

 

Hopefully the guy that was there before me and throne that came little bit later got some better shots.

The history of human rights dates back thousands of years and is judged based upon religious, cultural, philosophical and legal developments throughout the years. Several ancient documents and later religions and philosophies included a variety of concepts that may be considered to be human rights. Notable among such documents are the Cyrus Cylinder issued by the Persian emperor Cyrus the Great.
