    . Hello Everyone, I would like to start this new thread, by introducing myself. I am the Moderator of the Newcastle Metro Area Forum, within the North East England Sub-forum of Skyscraper City, over in the UK. My reason for writing at this time (which I have already discussed with two of your...

  4. 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...
  5. 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...

    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...

    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...

    Despite the heat and stifling humidity, this afternoon I ventured up to White Bear Lake, an established suburban community 10 miles north of St. Paul. It's history began as a Victorian resort town when it was connected via streetcar to Minneapolis and St. Paul. Today it's a vibrant and upscale...

    It's been a few months since I've gone on a phototour, so today I thought I'd explore the town of Waconia. It's a sleepy suburban town about an hour southwest of Minneapolis on Lake Waconia. What a cozy little place! I especially loved the little wooden-framed buildings downtown, which you...
  13. Urban Showcase
    March 19, 2011 Since I didn't manage to get everything I had planned on my last photo tour, I headed back to St. Paul to see if I could expand on the previous. This is kind of a weird mish-mash of photos, starting downtown, briefly hitting Lowertown, working my way up the hill to the Capitol...

    March 5, 2011 Since yesterday was such a beautiful winter day, I decided to head over to downtown St. Paul to snap some shots. Much of downtown was torn up to make way for the new Central Corridor LRT project, so it was impossible to avoid the construction. Regardless, I still think of St...

    Yesterday I decided to brave the -5ºF temp (-20ºC) and take some shots of Old Saint Anthony, the community where I live here in Minneapolis. Despite the bitter cold and even though it's the dead of winter, people were still out and about, carrying on with their daily activities as usual. One...
  18. Hull and Humber
    Searching for news of our fair city on the Interwebs always brings up stories related to our various international namesakes. Often including some startling parallels and coincidences. But what do we know about them? Has anybody ever visited another Hull? Does anybody have any trivia or...
  19. Minneapolis-Saint Paul
    In an effort to conclude my Northeast Minneapolis photo tour, I decided to go back out and brave the 0ºF temps to get the rest of the Old Saint Anthony business district. As one can see, the cold does not stop Minnesotans.
  20. Minneapolis-Saint Paul
    Today I didn't feel like going too far, so I decided to stay home and start a Northeast Minneapolis photo thread. I forgot to charge my camera's battery before I left the house, so it died after fifteen minutes. Unfortunately I only managed to capture a tiny area of Old Saint Anthony. There's...
