I took this on a very busy, warm evening when the bridge was quite crowded. With a nice long 20-second exposure, they all became shadows blurred across the scene.

A quiet morning over Lake of the Isles. One of my favorite things about living in Uptown is this beautiful lake. This is the view from the bridge on the South end of the lake, near the dog park.
Today is Day 2 of the 100 Post Challenge that I am sharing with my friends Dan & Rob. Part of the project is that I am rebuilding Mitchster.com with a whole new design and focus. Unfortunately I need to manually move all the photos. I’m on number 165 0f 1,167. I hope to have it done soon, so stay tuned!
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.
Every photographer in Minneapolis has to have this shot. If you go looking, you’ll figure out where to stand, in fact, it’s delightfully obvious. The first time I went looking and found the location, it was like finding a geocache or and Easter egg.
Alas, the Guthrie Theater is gone, but it affords a delightful view of our grand city beyond.
The new Target Stadium from the “skyline’ $13 seats. It’s amazing how they managed to shoe-horn a stadium into a large block between a railroad, two giant parking lots, two raised roads and a highway. Then they added a commuter rail terminal with a light-rail station above it. Startling how much is going on in this tiny space.
Caged in, Dan, Rob and Mitch enjoy the evening wind atop the 31st-floor open-air observatory of the grand Foshay Tower.
