Thanks.

The West Bank is the neighborhood directly east of downtown, it is named for being on the west bank of the Mississippi. Part of the University of Minnesota campus is located there. Since the '60s it has had a large number of left wing activists and anarchists, it is also home to a large Somali immigrant community.

That is what draws me to urban photography. I try to show the society rather than just the buildings.

I have some more photos from today, they are all from Minneapolis. First some people shots from downtown:

What I also appreciate is that you are not trying to hide the urban decay. You even make it 'beautiful' to watch.

These are from the vicinity of the 38th Street light rail station on the south side of the city. It is an old agricultural/industrial area on one side of the tracks and residential on the other:

The last couple of weeks of my life have been crap, and the weather has been miserable, so here are some gloomy photos of the Whittier neighborhood.

My neighbors across the street burned their house down last week, fortunately everybody made it out alive and without major injuries:
