Minneapolis - St Paul | 2011

In 2011 I made a number of photothreads. I ended up with a lot of photos I didn't use for one reason or another; usually because there were other photos that were similar or becuase they didn't work thematically with the rest of the thread. I thought it would be interesting to make a thread of the best of those shots. First though, here are links to the threads I made last year:

South Minneapolis - cruel January
Snowpacalyse II in Minneapolis
Minneapolis - frozen and thawing
Early spring in Minneapolis and St Paul
Gilded era splendor | Cathedral Hill in St Paul, Minnesota
St Paul - Crocus Hill
Minneapolis spring - architecture, street art, people, and the occasional tornado
Minneapolis - prairie skies and more
Minneapolis - city and nature
Minneapolis, St Paul and the St Croix Valley
Minneapolis - waiting for winter

I will post the photos chronolocially, one month per post.

January

All of these never-before-seen photos are awesome, Som! I particularly love the sunset skyline shot.

I'm amazed by now nicely your dusk/night photos turn out without grain...I really need to invest in a higher-quality camera.

I bet you could get a Nikon D40 for not very much now, that is what I use. The D90 is comming down in price too, now that it has been discontinued.

An interesting rangs of homes and neighbourhoods.

Out of interest the picture of the large white homes - in the last set of photos- the ones with large columned entrances. How much would they cost?

If you are talking about these they are around $150,000 to $200,000:
