Bob Davis as Howard Hughs

Bob Davis as Howard Hughes

My client Bob Davis, podcaster and former radio co-host on Davis & Emmer has recently acquired a new (to him) vehicle, the “Mobile Podcast Command” is an ambulance that is now all decked out and painted. The day he took ownership of it, before it was painted, Bob and I went to measure the beast for the exterior graphics. Bob had the brilliant idea of posing as Howard Hughes on the command deck of the MPC! Learn more about the website I created for him here.

Winter Roots

Winter Roots

Roots laid bare by the spring runoff. Yes, those are my footprints; they make a lovely compositional element to establish the flat plain of the shoreline. Not often I get to establish a line in a photo — something I miss from landscape oil painting. Not much else though.

This is part of a series that I took along the Mississippi River during the beginnings of a snowstorm. The first post is King Boreas Returns.

Snow on the River

Snow on the River

This longshot of the next bend in the river reveals the airborne snow, the whitish haze on the right is not snow on the lens, it’s all the snow in the atmosphere. The sharper trees on the left are the inside of the bend on the other side of the river.

Quiet River Bend

Quiet River Bend

The shoreline I’m standing on is deep under a shelf of ice, but across the river on the outside of the bend, years of torrent have washed the roots of the trees clean. This little stretch of the river is accessible from the Dog Park between Fort Snelling and The Minnehaha Falls.

King Boreas Returns

A few March days of 70° weather in the Great North Country is a fanciful dream, appreciated by the natives, but always borrowed time. Mid last week, the forecast for the weekend was chilly, but clear — then Saturday my weather app lit up, ‘Winter Storm Alert’ it cried! The dream is over! Awake! And with only one day notice King Boreas returns to his throne.

View up the Greenway from Uptown

View of the Greenway from Uptown

Looking east from above Uptown, you can see almost every avenue in Minneapolis from Hennepin to Minnehaha has it’s very own bridge that goes over the Greenway. It’s a very unique trail to check out, next time you are in Uptown, take a look or bring your bike and check it out. You can bike all the way to the Mississippi River on the Greenway trail. You’ll enjoy it!
