Rod’s Personal Page

 

My name is Rod Winning and I’ve been in the Recognition, Awards and Promotional Products industry since 1997.   Networking is the number one way to build a business and I’m sure you know that real networking means meeting people and determining how you can help them.  Chances are when you help others, they will try to help you. My networking abilities have really helped to build my business.

Photography has always been a hobby and now I’ve actually entered into a few Photo Contests.   Natures Trust BC   and South Delta Leader.  Haven’t won anything yet but it’s just a rush to enter and then to go and see your pictures online somewhere.  

I have shown my flickr account on another page but the contest is Natures Trust BC  and the gallery is on         https://www.flickr.com/groups/naturetrustofbc     my tag name is    winningways.     

 Link to my Flickr photostream  http://www.flickr.com/photos/29588817@N07/ and see some of my watercolour paintings and also see some of the photo’s I’ve entered in the Natures Trust Photo Contest.  After you check out my photos you can go to groups and look through the fantastic pictures in Natures Trust  and Watercolour Artists on N. America

I belong to the South Delta Artists Guild at Tsawwassen BC.  Check out the website www.southdeltaartistsguild.com to see art work of our members. Every month we hang a new show at our Tsawwassen Longhouse Gallery and pictures of these shows are on the web site. Interesting fine art.  I am now a Director at Large and help in the operations of our totally volunteer organization.

We live in Ladner, South of Vancouver.  Ladner is a community in Delta BC located on the Fraser River just south of the Deas-Massey Tunnel. A unique community that has maintained it’s heritage flavour. 

May 2011 – During a trip to New York, I walked across the Brooklyn Bridge and back. It took about 40 minutes to walk across the pedestrian/bicycle wooden slatted path above the 3 lanes of traffic each direction. Breathtaking with different views while crossing the bridge including the pylons and cables of the bridge itself. I put this experience up with the walk through Machu Pichu 2007 and the views of Easter Island when I was there in 1961.
