Thanks. It was sunny today so I took a bunch of people shots in downtown Minneapolis. When it is cloudy in the winter it is hard to get good people shots but when the sun comes out the nature of the light allows for some really good photographs:

So yesterday we had our biggest snowstorm since 1991. It was really cold today but I walked around for a few hours after work taking photographs. The first three are from Uptown:

The East Isles neighborhood is between Uptown and Lake of the Isles, it's residents are generally upper middle class to wealthy, it is considered to be a desireable place to live in the city:

Thanks.

Here are some new shots from today. The poorest and most dangerous part of the south side are the Phillips and Powderhorn Park neighborhoods which are next to each other, they are divided by east Lake St which I photographed earlier. It isn't really a hard core ghetto compared to what you have in other American cities though. These photos are from Phillips.
