I took this image for my friend & client Bob Davis. He recorded a really cool walk through Uptown for his podcast. He told me about the recording before he posted it and asked me if I had a good photo of the Uptown Theater at night to use as the image for the show. I realized that I’ve never taken a shot like that and scurried down to take this shot that I have imagined for years. Be sure to check out the podcast, it’s a lot of fun, he tells the history of Uptown while he walks through this ever-changing neighborhood that I call home.
The adventure continues through the oddities of Minnesota. Did you know that Petticoat Junction is here in our fair state?
Where and when in the Time-Space continuum did Caribou ever have signs like this? I found this in the the strangest place in Minnesota. Stay tuned for some really odd pictures…
On my way to have Ph’o Soup for lunch with my friend Sheila, we discovered that the snow that day stuck to the lettering on the awning! Cool effect on a snow day.
Ha, the joys of living in Uptown…
This week’s series is from a little photo tour through Uptown with my photobuddies Zoë and Laura. This sign graces the Uptown Theater at the corner of Lagoon & Hennepin.
The Spyhouse coffeeshop has nice late hours and great coffee. Not really a friendly neighborhood coffeeshop, but if you need to pose in public or enjoy watching those that do, it’s a great place. I mean no disrespect to the place, I go there too, like I said, great coffee and lots of seating… but I always make sure I’m wearing my most hipster outfit before I go.
There’s now a Five Guys burger joint in Uptown. It’s on Hennepin at 24th, where Baja Sol used to be. I’m not much of a burger person, but I have several friends that love it.
The Birch Pharmacy at the corner of Hennepin and Franklin closed some time ago, but something is definitely growing in its place. They have replaced all the windows and tuck-pointed the building, someone is spending a lot of money on this old structure! I look forward to sharing what ever is ‘growing’ in this location!
