A Short Glimpse of Spring, Saint Paul, Minnesota

March 19, 2011

Since I didn't manage to get everything I had planned on my last photo tour, I headed back to St. Paul to see if I could expand on the previous. This is kind of a weird mish-mash of photos, starting downtown, briefly hitting Lowertown, working my way up the hill to the Capitol, and back down again.

Today the 23rd, we received our fourth major snowstorm of this seemingly endless winter, and it's needless to say that Twin Citians are dying for the permanent warm up.

Thanks, Mariachi. I'm so disappointed because a group of 15 or so of them were rolling down Kellogg Boulevard as I walked by, but this was the only guy slow enough for me to react in time to take a photo.

I've never quite understood how it's physically possible to balance on those things. These people were doing flips and weaving in and out of traffic and everything!

Lovely photos, Jenni! I love the sky in the photo of the capitol and the church in the distance.

Thanks, gaviidae. I was disappointed it didn't turn out to be a bright sunny day, but the sky made for some interesting shots.

Snow melting is our first signal of spring. Unfortunately, just a couple of days after I took this photo, we had another major snowfall and there's snow on the ground again.

Yes, indeed. Winters here are very much like those in Siberia.

I do have more photos, but only low-quality and uninteresting. I generally try to weed out the lackluster ones...

Thanks, Mr. Johnson. One of these days I'm going to take some interior shots of the Cathedral of St. Paul. It's amazing from the inside!
