I was questioned by the police after taking this picture. Apparently the downtown St Paul riverfront is a homeland security surveilance area because it is a working port.

Downtown St Paul has been in relative decline since 1900 or so and has been the extra downtown ever since. St Paul as a whole is a pleasant place but the downtown has a bit of a rust belt feel and is a bit of the place that time forgot. On the other hand it has lots of cool 19th century commercial architecture while Minneapolis bulldozed most of it's to build skyscrapers.

I like those pictures of Lowertown and the industry on the river.

I haven't had time to take any photos in a while so I went for a walk. These are all of Minneapolis.

Spring comes late in Minnesota, we usually get our last snow in early April. Also it took a while for things to turn green this year because we didn't have any rain until last weekend.

I took some photos in St Paul today.

These are the oldest man-made structures in the Twin Cities:







The mounds have a nice view of the Twin Cities' skylines:
