Uptown Lagoon Still Green

Uptown Lagoon Still Green

Morning over the Lagoon. The days are numbered for the soon-to-be fleeting color green as the cold snap over the weekend is starting to take it’s toll in the trees in the area. The trees on Raspberry island on Lake of the Isles has a few trees starting to turn.  The Bridge on the right is the Uptown Greenway as it passes over the Chain of Lakes.

35W Mississippi Bridge on 9/11

It’s actually called the St. Anthony Falls Bridge, named for the falls just upriver from the bridge. The bridge is normally lit blue at night, but on this anniversary of 9/11, it was lit red, whit & blue. Kudos to Cheyenne for holding still for a 3 second exposure on a windy night.

There is a fifth dimension, beyond that which is known to man. It is the middle ground between light and shadow and it lies between the pit of man’s fears and the summit of his knowledge. It is an area which we call Infrared Photography…

I don’t think the gang graffiti did this sign much harm. I absolutely love the weird oozing stains along the top of the pillars, who knows what did that.

This poor signal light has had a rough life; the piece of wire is all that’s holding it together…
