Yah baby it was cold outside. A picture from the Saint Paul Winter Carnival torch light parade where the vulcans overthrow King Boreas, who is the king of winter and that means that summer will come back but not for a very long time because we do not do things quickly in Saint Paul.
This is one of the warmer summers in recent memory. I took this on Chestnut Plaza by the river. I usually point my camera in the other direction and photograph the river but I like the way the water fountains frame the Cathedral.
It was a perfect night for outdoor photography. The park was almost deserted and there wasn’t much of a breeze.
The snow melted so fast because of the warm temperatures and the rain that it got all foggy. This was a week ago in the early spring before second winter started.
As he walked through the fog he just could not shake the feeling that someone was following him . . . to be continued
I love to photograph the Mississippi river at night. With the colors and the reflections it never looks the same twice. I took this one just after the July 4th fireworks in St. Paul. I like the boats and the barges. I have a rule about shooting downtown and that is that the 1 must be lit up on the first bank building. It blinks on and off and I delete the shot if it is off. I did get some shots of the fireworks too but amazingly they look the same every year.
