Some photos from July that I forgot to post.

Minneapolis

These two are from the Uptown neighborhood south of downtown. This is an artist/musician/hipster neighborhood that has been slowly gentrifying over the last 20 years:

The Warehouse District was built in the late 19th and early 20th century during Minneapolis' first boom and most of it is still there, it is now a preservation district. The commercial downtown from the same era has been largely torn down and replaced with the modern buildings that make up the cities' skyline. Where the two come together you see stuff like this:

Interstate 94 is the southern border between Downtown and Uptown. The next three photos are taken from a bridge that is parallel and slightly above the interstate.

Looking north:

Thanks.

Saint Paul

Here are some more photos of my walk through St Paul's West 7th neighborhood.

This street sits at the edge of bluffs along the Mississippi. You can see the bluffs in the St Paul skyline shot in post #23, which was taken from the sidewalk on the right side of this photo:

The Schmidt's brewery is the main landmark of the neighborhood but it has been empty for the last 6 years. Efforts to renovate it were stopped by the financial crisis and recession:

this city always will have, until I die, its image tied to Mary Tyler Moore...She made me fall in love with Minneapolis back in the 70's

Great pictures! I like the pics of the people, I'm personally too shy to take pics with people in them because of their potential responses. Man, I miss my time in Minneapolis, and hope to go back very soon.

Actually I have only had one person stop and ask me what I was doing. I told her I was doing a photo documentary on the people of the city. She thought that was pretty cool.

I use a telephoto lense so most of the time people have no idea I am photographing.
