Como Conservatory Sunken Garden

Como Conservatory Sunken Garden

I went to the Como Conservatory to ‘get a little green’ and found that the Sunken Garden is closed for planting. If you ever wondered what it looks like without all the beautiful flowers, well, here you go. You can see the garden with flowers on my buddy Dusty’s site. Fear not, I found plenty to photograph in the rest of the conservatory. Tune in over the coming days to see…

Minnesota Capitol Marble

Minnesota Capitol Marble

I went to the capitol a few days ago with Dan & Rob. The marble staircases are beautiful, but hard to photograph.

It reminds me of something my father told me when I was a pup: The reason government buildings are made of stone is so the loyal subjects can’t burn them down.

Sneaking Around the Capitol at Night

Sneaking Around the Capitol at Night

I went to the Minnesota State Capitol with my friend M Saturday for Shadows and Spirits of the State Capitol — a tour of the Capitol building at night, lead by actors telling the history of the building set in the year 1905. Part of the event was that they turned the lights down to “1905 levels” meaning that I shot the whole time at between a third and a twentieth of a second. Hold still! This image was taken with a 10.5mm fish-eye I rented for the weekend.

Now Accepting Prayer Requests

Now Accepting Prayer Requests

When I was at the St. Paul Cathedral, Annette from Annette and Walter modeled for this shot. This devotional-candle stand, with so many points of light, was a real challenge: I used an f/1.4 for the shallow depth of field to add emotion and draw the eye to the point of interest.

I’m connected, so if you’d like to submit your prayers in the comments, I will pass them on up!
