After setting up a shot of this mooring chain and the barges behind it, I was set upon by this pushboat and it’s crew. I had no idea they were coming, just one of those joyful coincidences of a daily photographer.
Love the weathering on the 3rd Ave Bridge over the Mississippi by the Saint Anthony Falls.
The classic views of the Stone Arch Bridge over the Mississippi. A fun place to hang out too.
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…
When my cousin Jenny took a photo class at the U, her instructor told the class that if anyone chose to bring in an assignment photo of Minnehaha falls, it better be a damn good shot of it. For this reason, I’ve avoided posting any photos of it. But, since I was out biking around looking at the rushing rivers from all the rain, I decided to take a photo. This is the classic angle almost everyone sees it from, so I decided to shoot a wide-angle of it, so you can see the ledge wall and the people. It’s unfortunately not a ‘damn good shot’ of the falls, but It’s the best one I got today.
Crashing storm waters cascade down Saint Anthony Falls by the locks. I love the tapestry of corrosion on the concrete lock outer wall.
After this past week’s big thunderstorms, I decided to go check out the Saint Anthony Falls downtown and see the show. The noise was awesome and despite the low wind, I was continuously lost in a sea of mist and spray.
Yesterday’s construction site, but with a panoramic view of the 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.
