Thanks for the comments.

I've been really busy lately so I haven't had much time for photography which is unfortunate because the Twin Cities tend to look good this time of year. I only have one photo from last week, it's from Uptown, Minneapolis, a short walk from my apartment:

Most of the pictures I took were in the Warehouse District which is the 19th century industrial part of downtown. Now it is a preservation area.

This is the Warehouse district:
