Lake Phalen – Lost and Found

I found this one last night. I took it about a year ago when I went out one Sunday morning to get some photos of lake Phalen for a project I was working on. This one did not make the cut but it is better than any photo that I didn’t take yesterday. I did not process it but I didn’t delete it either.

West 7th and Robert Street

Another shot from a moving car. This is West 7th street and Robert. There isn’t much traffic because it was taken on a Sunday morning. This is such an ordinary scene for me. I see it almost every day. We usually don’t take photos of what is common to us. That is probably a mistake.

I mentioned in yesterday’s post that I was up on a roof with a wide angle lens.this isn’t what I was there to shoot but I liked the view. Kellogg blvd. is to the left and I managed to get the history center and state capitol building in the background. Too bad about the cathedral though but the sun was almost right behind it and the best I could have hoped for was a gray silhouette.

This was too much fun. The 4th of July was one of those muggy cloudy days with big dark clouds. The photo is made from three bracketed shots and I gave it the most extreme HDR treatment that I could without making a total mess.. . or maybe it is a total mess but I had fun with it and that is all that really matters. The photo was taken down in the River Park in St. Paul and is of the newly restored Municipal Elevator.We have the most beautiful parks in St. Paul.
