Minneapolis Meet

GXR A12-M, f5.6, 1/60, ISO 351, JPG, 42mm (Ricoh GR f2.8 28mm L)

The great thing about having a blog is all the fantastic people I met through it from all around the world. It is always a really fun and interesting meet and I enjoy it a lot, this makes it worth for me to keep up the blog even if it's not always easy.

Today, I met with fellow blogger and photographer Jason for a photography walk, unfortunately in fading light thanks to the traffic while getting to the meet up point, and a chat over dinner and drinks.
I had a great time and really enjoyed the meeting, it shows that the world is a small place indeed, I hope we can meet up again in the future and have more time for photography.

Minnetonka Sunset

Took a drive to Lake Minnetonka after work and was rewarded with a great sunset, the first really nice sunset here so it was worth it.

Here is a series, all taken with the Heliar 15mm lens.

Superior Road Trip

Took another road trip, this time all the way to Lake Superior. Went to visit the Split Rock Lighthouse, Gooseberry Falls, Two Harbors and a sort time in Duluth.

The weather was cold and I even had a bit of snow on the way there but it was a nice day out and worth the long drive. If I would have planned this better I would have stayed overnight and maybe even gone all the way up to Canada but there is only limited time.

St. Paul

Spent the day in St. Paul, walking around and taking in the sights, it might be the twin city of Minneapolis but it's pretty different from it's other twin and feels more industrial.

Here is a short series from the day.

The Mall

Headed to the Mall to check it out and also have a play with the new MS Surface tablet. I am not big into shopping and don't like malls so it did not take long for me to get bored in the mall. Trying out the Surface was more fun though and I really like Windows 8.

This is a series of pictures from the mall to give an idea how big it really is.

People in the Frame

The weather was not great and I did not take any pictures worth posting.
Instead I decided to post some pictures from Saturday where the focus in not on the people but where the people add to the pictures.

Minnesota Road Trip

The weather was great so I decided to go for a road trip rather to see more of Minnesota. The trip was very nice apart from having to make do with the worst car I have ever driven.

This is a series of some of the things I have seen along the way.

Oh, in case you wonder what car I have, it's a Chevrolet Impala. Guess I should have taken the Toyota instead.

Day in Minneapolis

Spent the day walking around Minneapolis, it started off foggy but turned to a very nice and sunny day.

I enjoyed seeing the city and my favourite area is the old mill district.
