While other’s travel to exotic locations and capture amazing sunsets and sunrises I walk the mean street of St. Paul and photograph what I call “urban hardware”. Why? Because someone has to do it.

It is nice to see the Dayton’s building repurposed. I hope to be repurposed myself one day.
St. Paul city streets are hard to bike on because they are full of potholes. The sidewalks are full of tables and chairs and scooters and bikes.
The Capital City Bikeway (CCB) is smooth and there are is no outdoor dining on it and so far I have not seen any limebikes or scooters.
The Mississippi River at Chestnut Landing now has a beach. The river used to go up to the rocks but it went down after the last flood and enough silt was left behind to create a beach. The object on the beech is part of a rubber mask. People throw the strangest things in the river. Please don’t throw stuff in the river!
Many St. Paul City parks include water features. Even the parks on the river or on the lakes. The water in the park along the Mississippi River has been turned off for most of the season. Probably because of flooding. It is nice to see it on again.
