Missing MPLS

Perhaps it is the overcast skies of Southern California that are making me miss Minneapolis so much. Then again, maybe it is just the displacement that naturally follows moving to a new city, one where I have no roots, no paths to calmly wander, and no climate to fight angrily against.  Above:  a happy mishap […]

Looking Up

I have to take a second to give a quick shout out and link to one of my favorite Minneapolis artist’s work:  Andy Sturdevant’s “The Stroll” writings for the MinnPost.

For example, it is almost humorous the way that things can come back around; full circle. This time 3 […]

Matt and Haley

There are preciously few people that I actually enjoy being around. My friends Haley and Matt just happen to be two of them. As you know, I normally hesitate when taking photographs of others of my species, however, shooting these two was rather enjoyable! They’re starting up a new food/restaurant/dining blog… details to follow soon!

Reclaiming space: I have to hand it to the city of Minneapolis. Every so often, a new feature of the urban landscape appears like an apparition. Most recently, rental bike stations have been colonizing (in a positive way) the unused scraps of public space throughout the city. Kudos Minneapolis.
