We had another thunderstorm tonight. I haven't really done any night photography before and I don't own a tripod so I would call these shots experimental, at best.

The neighborhood didn't turn into a lake this time.

I took some more photos today. The first one is from Minneapolis, the rest are all from Saint Paul:

Saint Paul

This first batch of photos is from the Frogtown neighborhood which is the poorest part of Saint Paul, it is a multi-ethnic no majority neighborhood but most of the businesses are owned by asian immigrants. This is the heart of the largest urban Hmong community in the US.

The next batch of Saint Paul photos is from Cathedral hill which is south of Frogtown. Cathedral Hill is the richest part of Saint Paul though these photos are from the least upscale part of it. The neighborhood is full of late victorian houses and a lot of mansions but I didn't photograph any of those because I covered that last year.

First: Great pictures.
Second: No one here haven't explained a spirit of a place like you.

Really, enjoying every post of yours.

Thanks.

I took a small number of photos yesterday and today in the Whittier neighborhood of Minneapolis. This is the neighborhood I live in, it is a bit of an everything neighborhood in terms of social class and demographics.

Thanks.

Saint Paul

I took some more photos of Saint Paul this afternoon. All of these are from Crocus Hill which is a neighborhood to the west of downtown (St Paul). It was built to be the high rent district in the late 19th century, by the 1960s and '70s it was a slum. Gentrification began in the late '70s and it is now back to being an upscale neighborhood. House and condo prices have gone through the roof but apartments are still relatively inexpensive.
