I went to see the Minneapolis Saint Patrick’s Day Parade yesterday. In the mix was a great drum troop that included this little cutie.
From this perspective you can see the arches of three bridges, the 10th ave, the Saint Anthony Falls (35W) and the stone arch bridge. Also in there is the lower locks (the structure without arches and the building) and a nice curvy bike trail. The two flags flying over the locks is the us flag and a black MIA flag. Extra credit of you can figure out where I was standing when I took it.
When there’s no wind, the snow can stack up nicely on trees.
Lost it the wind, the herd or electric reindeer search for a place to spend the night and dream of electric sheep.
Every photographer in Minneapolis has to have this shot. If you go looking, you’ll figure out where to stand, in fact, it’s delightfully obvious. The first time I went looking and found the location, it was like finding a geocache or and Easter egg.
The Minneapolis Parks Department does a fantastic job taking care of the lakes. Usually the paths around the lakes are in better shape than the roads.
Snow and pools of light fall upon the quiet street.
I went down to the State Capitol building to see the Pro-Wisconsin Union Rally yesterday. It was a little difficult to photograph inside, but I found these ‘industrious’ Wobblies standing right in front with their banner. Thanks for the shot guys!
