It was warm today, not much below freezing, and the light was good, so I went downtown and took a bunch of people shots:

Now that we are into the dirty snowpile portion of winter it is hard to make the city look nice so I am going to continue with my focus on the grittier parts. I took these shots in Powderhorn Park today, along with Phillips this is the poorest part of the south side. The neighborhoods are next to each other and form two halves of a whole with Phillips being a bit older and closer to downtown. Despite being poor and having relatively high crime Powderhorn is a cool neighborhood. It has an interesting vibe. When I moved here in the 80s it was populated by working class blacks, hippies and punk rockers; since then it has had a large influx of central and south American immigrants but the working class blacks and freaks are also still there.

This last shot is from the Lynlake section of Uptown:

I though I should add this, it is a rough map of the neighborhoods of Minneapolis from a real estate website. It is relatively accurate but some of the large areas are actually an amalgamation of neighborhoods; the area it is calling Calhoun - Isles is actually a combination of Uptown, East Isles and Kenwood, the area it is calling University is actually Dinkytown and Marcy-Holmes; the West Bank and Seward are mixed in with Longfellow.

Thanks.

I was all over town today and took a bunch of photos. At first I was going to focus on people shots because it was sunny but it was also really cold so there were not that many people outside. Instead I focused on neighborhood shots.

First I was in Uptown:

Then I went downtown:

Next I went to east Lake St which is the border between Phillips and Powderhorn Park.

Some detail shots of a mural on east Lake St, the mural covers two sides of the building. I don't know who the artist is but they have done a number of murals in the neighborhood. This one must have been done this fall because it wasn't there last summer. As far as I am concerned this person should be paid to paint buildings in the city for as long as they want to because their stuff is fantastic.
