Minneapolis’s playground

stone arch bridge

stone arch bridge

This is the famous stone arch bridge in Minneapolis. If you look over the sides there is a magnificent view of St. Anthony falls. On a nice day the bridge if full of walkers, joggers, people on bikes, roller blades and even segways. The bridge is long and wide and has designated bike lanes. One of the best ways to photograph it is at night at river level. I have not done that yet. 🙂

When street cars roamed the Twin Cities

Street Car Station

Street Car Station

There was a time when street cars ran through the Twin Cities. Then they decided that buses are better and tore up the tracks. Now they are laying tracks along what used to be a major street car line for light rail. I think we really screwed up when we got rid of the street cars. This old station is on Lexington and Horton and is a museum. There are no street cars any more, just street car museums. I understand it is a nice palce to have wedding, and of course it is fun to take photos of.
