I use a telephoto lense. Usually I take the photos from across the street or a little bit away from the people but usually it isn't too far.

Minneapolis has a bit of a funky style that isn't typical of the US as a whole. Some people like it, some don't.

The "Camel Store" is a small grocery store, they sell things like frozen pizza, toilet paper, soft drinks, and canned goods, but mostly cigarettes and candy. It is where neighborhood folks go to buy their snacks and smokes.

No, actually they are not allowed to sell any of that stuff, just cigarettes and plain lighters.

Cigarette companies don't sell branded merchandise because of a deal they made with the state, the state sued them to make them pay for the public health costs of dealing with smoking and because they were advertising to kids. The cigarette companies were forced to pay for the anti-smoking campaigns here, and stop selling things like t-shirts and lighters. They were also forced to make a large cash payment to the state government.

Not selling branded merchandise is nationwide now, the rest is a Minnesota thing.

Interesting pictures of Minneapolis, captures the diversity of the city's people.


Only downside...As in all of our US cities, too many of the folks are overdue for a diet!

There seems to be this funky hipster element in Minneapolis that I totally didn't expect to see when I entered this thread.

Coming from Richmond (VA), I'm used to seeing it here all the time, and when I go to DC and NYC...I've heard about it on the pacific northwest as well..but for some reason never really imagined it in Minneapolis..Minneapolis seems much more diverse than I expected..

Cool photos.
