That's a pretty large spoon, huh? :-)
I was in Minneapolis, MN for a couple of days last week, and I really enjoyed it. It's a beautiful town and I did my best in my limited free time to shoot a lot of it. I think I mostly succeeded. In addition to lovely things to point the camera at, I was loving the weather and sunset skies that I got while there!
I live in Austin, TX in case you weren't aware, and despite it being September here just like it is wherever you are, it is still pretty dang hot. While I can't complain about this summer since, in relative terms, it was pretty mild, I will say that heading north to a place like Minneapolis was a welcome respite from the heat.
Couple that with one INCREDIBLE sunset I was able to enjoy (and photograph - yes!) and it was a productive week for me, photographically speaking. More to come as I get time to process all the shots.
That reminds me - I am now posting my on-the-go iPhone images mostly on Instagram, so if you want to follow me there...that's where you can find some of this stuff, until such time as I get around to posting the "finished products" here.
Anyways, back to today's post...
One thing I always do before a trip is to Google the you-know-what out of the town so I can find all the cool stuff that I want to shoot. The one thing that came up consistently was this incredible modern art sculpture, known as Spoonbridge and Cherry. Having seen it online many times before, once I knew I would be nearby it was impossible to resist. It's fun and whimsical, and well worth a stop by the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden to give it a view...and to take a photo, of course!
And you can probably see the skies were getting really beautiful. It was a couple of hours later that I photographed the sunset, which was absolutely stunning! Don't you just love it when you are traveling somewhere and you get a great sunset? I'm always very grateful for that!
