  4. From Excelsior, Minnesota!

    Midwest and Plains
    If you haven't heard of this Minnesota town then check it out someday! It was voted to be one of the best main streets in America and is busy with activity. My shots may not be the greatest, just got the camera last week, but they show how picturesque this town is. DSC_0080 by grant.simons, on...
  5. Minneapolis and the Upper Midwest

    Urban Showcase
    I thought I would make a thread for all of my photos from this year. I don't have very many yet because I have been busy with other things, but I will post what I have so far and will update the thread when I have more. So far this year I have mostly been going for an Edward Hopper vibe. These...
  6. Downtown Minneapolis

    Minneapolis-Saint Paul
    Since I've yet to do a downtown Minneapolis photo thread (which is long overdue), yesterday evening I thought it might be fun to start a new collection highlighting the city's core. Minneapolis is sometimes referred to as the "First City of the West", and the central business district consists...
  7. Mill District, Minneapolis

    Minneapolis-Saint Paul
    Keeping with my "staying home" theme, I did some wandering around in the Mill District. This has been the first weekend without rain for a month, so I was itching to get out and snap some more photos. The Mill District was born from the only natural waterfall on the Mississippi called St...
  8. North Loop, Minneapolis

    Minneapolis-Saint Paul
    Since gas is starting to get expensive, I thought it might be a good idea to stay home and get some shots of my own city. Today I spent the afternoon wandering the North Loop, a mostly residential district directly northwest of downtown Minneapolis. The North Loop has an unusual mix of both...
  9. Red Wing, Minnesota

    Midwest and Plains
    Yesterday I decided to check out Red Wing, Minnesota, which is regarded by many as one of the most beautiful towns in the state. Located on the Mississippi River an hour south of the Twin Cities, the town was founded in 1857 and is one of the first settlements opened to white settlers in...
  10. St. Peter, Minnesota

    Midwest and Plains
    To take advantage of the very unseasonable 70º weather, I went down to St. Peter to explore a town I’ve driven through countless times on the way to Mankato, but never really gave much of a second glance. St. Peter was founded in 1853 on the Minnesota River during Minnesota’s territorial days...
  11. The Winter that Wasn't - Anoka, Minnesota

    Midwest and Plains
    The last time I was in Anoka in the summer of 2010, it was about 100ºF and oppressively humid, so I didn’t spend as much time exploring as I would have liked. Seeing as this was the first below-freezing day in a while this winter, I figured it was the perfect time to revisit the suburban city 20...
  12. Owatonna, Minnesota

    Midwest and Plains
    In an effort to take advantage of the amazingly warm weather, I headed down to Owatonna, one of Southern Minnesota's largest communities. The town seemed quiet considering it was the day after Christmas, but there were a few people enjoying the unseasonable temps. It's extremely unusual this...
  13. Faribault, Minnesota

    Midwest and Plains
    Today I decided to check out Faribault (pronounced Fair-ih-boe), a town in Southern Minnesota at the confluence of the Cannon and Straight rivers. The town is named after French fur trader Alexander Faribault, who established a fur trading post at the modern-day site of the community...
  14. The North Star State ★ Cities and Towns of Minnesota

    Urban Showcase
    Since I've been posting several individual threads in the Urban Showcase over the past year featuring Minnesota cities and towns, I thought I might as well condense them all into one and continue to update at my pleasure. Thanks to everyone for your praise and encouragement as I very slowly...
  15. Autumn in Wayzata, Minnesota

    Urban Showcase
    Situated on Wayzata Bay at the northeastern end of Lake Minnetonka, Wayzata (pronounced Why-ZETTA) is a former Victorian-era resort town and today is is an upper-middle class suburban city. Because of its transformation to a suburban community in the mid-20th century, the city has an odd...

  17. Lanesboro, Minnesota

    Urban Showcase
    Seeing as this weekend will probably be the last stretch of beautiful weather for the year, I decided I'd make the trek down to Lanesboro. Lanesboro is an isolated river community tucked into the Root River valley in the southeastern corner of Minnesota. In the last 20 years, the town has seen...

  19. The Minnesota State Fair

    Urban Showcase
    I haven't been to the "Great Minnesota Get-Together" in a few years, so a friend and I decided the weather was too perfect not to go. The Minnesota State Fair is located in the suburb of Falcon Heights, which sits just north of St. Paul city limits and is almost exactly halfway between downtown...
