Celebrating summer (July theme day)

Here in Minnesota if you don't spend some time during the summer on a lake, you can't really claim citizen status. So, celebrate summer the Minnesota way and see how others around the world are enjoying the season at the City Daily Photo Project.

Shades and a dark suit

It must be a Secret Serviceman. Indeed. President Obama stopped by the local creamery yesterday for an ice cream cone. Most of us on the street never got closer than the nearest security guy.

Lovin' the Green Line

More fun with the iPhone app InstaFrame on the opening weekend of the Green Line. Free rides for all!

The fun continues with my iPhone apps. This one is BlurFX and ScratchCam taken a couple of weeks ago near St Anthony Main during an iPhone photo workshop. To see more ABC Wednesday photos, go here. To see more app-transformed photos, go here.

Bent steel

Another iPhone manipulation using TiltShiftGen to focus on the guy walking under the beam and Distressed FX to enhance color and make the shadows pop. This was at the ruins of the mill fire that now makes up part of the Mill City Museum in Minneapolis.

Romantic railroad tracks

A most excellent day spent learning how to use my iPhone camera and a load of really fun apps to make my photos appear something other than the way I took them. This is the Distressed app giving the image - the railroad tracks right next to the Minneapolis Photo Center -  its dreamy appearance. The birds were added!

R is for ravenous

This eagle was devouring a woodchuck and just didn't want to let go as I approached for a close-up.
To see more "r" entries, visit ABC Wednesday.

Theme day: Squares

The Minneapolis Convention Center doesn't have much to commend itself in the architecture category but it served nicely for this month's theme. See others at the City Daily Photo project.

Ready for planting

I took a detour on my way back to the Twin Cities from southern Minnesota on one of the first really nice days of this late, but very welcome, spring. Aside from a few isolated patches of snow stuck in dark crannies the countryside is free of winter.

Theme day: Triangles

My Victorian neighborhood has many renovated houses. Some have taken the refurbishment into the New Age.

For more theme day entries, visit the City Daily Photo gallery for April 2014.

Ice die

A local bar has strung blocks of ice like so many giant dice to form a beaded wall along their currently unused patio. Pretty soon these will start melting (if we're lucky!).

Theme day: People on the Street

Just another day of the winter that would not end in downtown St. Paul.

Winter sports fever

The winter Olympics are on and Minnesotans often figure large in the event. But we have our own City of Lakes Loppet where skiers come out en masse to loop around Lake Calhoun - even on a very cold day!
