Best water around . . . organic even. I submitted this photo in a contest for a banner on a neighborhood facebook group. It is unlikely to win but to me it represents a lot of what my neighborhood is about and how we give historic buildings a new life.
They don’t make them like this anymore. This one is going to be restored.
Last years fireworks were moved to the Minnesota state capitol building because of some flooding. They would have been launched over the Mississippi River. This year they will be at the CHS ball park. I hope to get a picture or two to add to my collection of fireworks photos.
Excuse the converging verticals. it is hard to photograph this building because there is always traffic in the street right where I would have to stand to get a shot.
One of my favorite local landmarks. Built in 1913. It was a grocery store right up through the 1990’s.
Found on the grounds of the Science Museum of Minnesota. Always a great place for a nature walk in the city.
I have been thinking about the past a lot lately and have been taking pictures of things that have changed in my neighborhood in the last decade or so. I think where the coffee shop is there was an book store of the x rated variety.
