The crash of the housing market and great recession left several opportunities. They are scattered in and around the metro area. I don’t know what the status of this property it and have no idea what it looks like on the inside but it has been vacant for several years and I hope that someday it will be fixed up or torn down to make way for the next opportunity.

As a tourist


St. Paul Catherdral

I took my niece to see the cathedral. She has never seen it before.  I have to say that it was like seeing it all over again myself.  Such a gorgeous building. If you live in the area check it out.  Yes you can go inside but leave a donation. The building is a national treasure but it costs money to keep it open.

Mickey’s always fun to photograph

Mickey's diner

Mickeys Diner is iconic and most everyone with a camera has photographed it at one time or another.  I have many photographs of the place and people buy them. I took a picture with my phon and posted it and someone mentioned commented that she has a print. I wasn’ sure what to say.  🙂  This is my favorite angle and I have a print hanging in my dining room.  The dining car was made in New Jersey and is on the national register of historic places
