    I don't know if this is in the right spot but if it isn't, my apologies i couldn't figure out where it went.


    So i live in Minnesota and i want to take some industrial photos. But i have no idea where anything industrial is. I'm looking for like an old factory, warehouse, or power plant or something. I have no idea how to find it though. Searched google came up with nothin. Does anyone live in Minnesota? If you do, do you know of any good industrial spots?

    I know that tony (shorty6049) lives in Minnesota and i think he's shot some industrial shots. You might try asking him if he doesnt answer you already

    Thanks for the input guys. I'm going to hold off on making a new thread as well as contacting tony, i found someone on deviant art who takes some wonderful industrial shots. I contacted him and he said he would send me a picture of a map with some spots on it that are good. But i might do that later. Thanks :)

    I live in chaska, but i have taken a bunch of industrial car photos downtown.

    There is a smaller warehouse district area off of university ave. More times then not, at least on night, they are vacant and you can usually get some cool picutres from them.

    Otherwise right downtown minneapolis(hennipin) has some cool stuff too. I think i am thinking of the old spaghetti factory building, around in that area. Forgive me if i have the wrong street names.

    There are also some awesome shots that could be taken on the UofM campus, both the east and the west bank portions of the campus.

    As previously mentioned, the St. Anthony falls area is really cool too. I don't know, just look around! I feel that is one of the coolest parts of photograpy.

    I'm loving it and we're getting more as we speak!

    To the OP: I'd try the Mpls Warehouse District
    http://www.mplswarehouse.com/index.cgi

    Or as another poster said, "just look around! ....that is one of the coolest parts of photograpy."

    Your roommate isn't Max Action, is he? :lol:

    Seriously, though, I'd try some of the West 7th/Shepard's Road area of St. Paul and the Hamm's brewery complex off of Phalen Blvd. I'm not familiar enough with the west burbs to give much advice out there...
