Spring has Returned

Spring has Returned

The Apple blossoms around Lake of the Isles in Uptown burst fourth, bringing a sweet aroma and a heart-stirring pink color to our formerly gray world.

After a long and productive break, I am returning to the blog. The combination of lots of design work and the sheer exhaustion of a long and gray spring lead to the downfall of Mitchster. But alas! I have returned!

Roller Girl at the Saint Patrick's Parade

Roller Girl at the Saint Patrick’s Parade

She was handing out little flyers for the Roller Girls when I took this pic. I chose this one because I’m oddly fascinated by her forlorn expression. Hint to the Roller Girls, next time hand out free tickets to an event. I saw your little flyers all around on the ground after the parade, but not one of the Irish Festival tickets that were given out during the parade.

Arches Over the Mighty Mississippi

Arches Over the Mighty Mississippi

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.
