Fantastic photos.

Wow! St Paul's feels like some forgotten place in the outer regions of the U.S. But I guess the vastness of America is comprised of so many towns and cities like this. I note that it is the state capital!

St Paul has some nice areas, and parts of it are vibrant but I didn't photograph any of those areas for this thread. Most of the St Paul shots are from Downtown and the East Side. Downtown St Paul is dead because all of the growth and vibrancy of the metro has been focused on downtown Minneapolis for the last 100 years. The East Side is one of the grittier neighborhoods in the metro and has some issues with abandonment. On the other hand the part of St Paul that is between the downtowns has some of the most beautiful neighborhoods in the state and vibrant commercial corridors.

Even though it may not paint the prettiest picture, I like that you capture the gritty areas and vibrant areas alike. Abandonment and decay can sometimes make fascinating images, as evidenced in this thread. Not even here in the Twin Cities (which is one of few truly robust economies in the Midwest) are we immune to this problem.

The eastern part of Lowertown in downtown St. Paul, along with the West Side floodplain on the other side of the river is probably the ugliest, most derelict area of the metro.
