South Minneapolis - cruel January

This started out as a tour of Phillips and Powderhorn which are the poorest parts of the south side but I also took a few shots in Whittier and Uptown which are the neighborhoods I live and work in.

Great pics as usual Somnifor.

Lake Street corridor was my stomping grounds when I was in MPLS during the summer, very diverse place!

Lake St is my favorite part of Minneapolis. It is like a cultural cross section of the whole city on one street.

Minneapolis doesn't have the bombed out looking ghettos that you see in many American cities. The poor parts of the city are still relatively decent.

Excellent south side photo tour yet again, Som!

I really love the photo with the boat named Endurance, filled with snow. What a perfect pictorial metaphor for our Minnesota winters.

Great stuff. I have to admit that there are lovely homes in that part of town.

When I saw that my first thought was "holy crap, they have a metaphor in their driveway". Sometimes you have to work for good photos and sometimes they are right there in front of you.

Thanks, I was aiming for that. Sometimes when it is really cold the light has this cold hard cristaline blue look to it. I was trying to capture that in a few of the photos.
