    Well, Sundays have been reserved for the last month or so to get out and take some photos, and walk around the city to find subjects. The below are some of these from yesterday. Let me know what you think.

    One of me before I got started. I never take photos of myself, but it was a good day and I felt like it:)

    A deserted restaurant patio. I found this pretty much by accident. I was going to find a spot to sit down and clean my lens off, and saw all of these pink trees. Iwent down further and found everything was pink in the courthard. Lightposts, railings, garbage cans, the windows of the building behind it...you get the picture. It was pretty cool to be surrounded by this.

    This was sitting on the ground of someones apartment/condo entrance. Thought it made a cool picture

    Thanks very much for looking! Let me know what you all think. Take care -Jared

    Nice series, I enjoyed it, I am in Minneapolis about a dozen times a year for business, but alas lack the time to leave the corporate building. Nice shots.

    Thanks again Canoncan. Minneapolis is a cool place in many aspects. I've been on a tear taking pictures around here lately. I'll be moving to Summit County Colorado at the end of the summer, and want to make sure I get some photos before I go. If you ever have time when you're around here, I'll be more than happy to show you some cool spots. But I know how the whole time issue goes when you're here for work. Thanks again, Take care-Jared
