Maze at the St. Paul Science Museum

Maze at the St. Paul Science Museum

An unusual maze, it has several options including a short-cut. There’s a bit of a Labyrinth to it in that there is a center goal and you can see it pretty clearly from the entrance. I’ll have to come back when they are open and try it out.

Maplewood Police Sgt. Joe Bergeron’s Funeral

Last Thursday my fellow bloggers Dan, Rob and I went to observe Maplewood Police Sgt. Joe Bergeron’s Funeral. Officers representing cities all over the state started showing up before dawn and stood silently at attention across the street from the cathedral. It was an incredibly moving experience and one I will never forget. As Dan said, “I’m glad we went, but I never want to do that again.”

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!
