The old and the new in Minneapolis, MN

Look Up

The older traditional architecture of Minneapolis, MN is overwhelmed and overshadowed by a new modern high rise. The old seems to be always giving way to the new. There will be times that this does not seem like a good thing.

Abstract designs are all around us; all you have to do is go out and look for them. This particular image was captured in Duluth, Minnesota, several years ago.

My Adventures In Duluth, Minnesota

This week finds me bumming around Duluth in both search of work and a place to live. Having not found success at either one leaves lots of time to explore this lakeside city with my camera. Here are some of the results.

The Waterfront

Along the east side of the city there is a long shoreline with a couple of lighthouses, a boardwalk, a rose garden and several parks. Following are some images from the lakeshore area.

The Magical Drawbridge

This drawbrige, built in the early 20th century, is one of the few where the main platform rises vertically. The structure is a Duluth landmark, photo by author.

Camera Abstractions

The camera is a great tool for creating abstract images and designs. This is what I found in Duluth.

Store Window

Superior Street in downtown Duluth cuts across a steep hillside that is filled with stores, banks, office buildings and even a casino. I’ve spent too much time at the casino and not enough looking for work. This storefront window on Superior St. sells T-shirts.

P.S.

Since Bob Dylan just gave a major interview with Rolling Stone Mag, there is more coming soon on the man from northern Minnesota.
