Another picture from the Nature Valley bicycle festival in downtown St. Paul last week. I had to shoot into the sun but I really wanted the church steeples in the shot and Mickey’s dinner in the background. We do have a pretty downtown area.
It was a perfect night for outdoor photography. The park was almost deserted and there wasn’t much of a breeze.
When I wanted to learn how to take photos at night I went down to Harriet Island and tool pictures of downtown. I like to take this shot once a year. It is better when all the lights are on downtown but I can only do that in the winter when the river isn’t nearly as pretty. I have to have the red one in the picture and it blinks on and off so I have to wait for it. 🙂 Have a happy Saint Patricks day.
This church is located on 7th street in downtown St. Paul. It is over 150 years old. A catholic church built by German immigrants. Architectural photography is still my favorite and I spent a few hours at this church. I think I could have made a day of it there is so much to take in.
The weather has been amazing and I took a little time off on Sunday for a photo walk. This is the corner of 10th street E. and Cedar street in downtown St. Paul. You can stand on the corner and see an interesting combination of old buildings and new ones. They look like they belong together.
I took this with my phone while I was walking the dog yesterday. I processed it on an iPad using the DynaLightHD app. It doesn’t look much like a photo any more but it would work on a web site banner or maybe as a background or wall paper.
