Connecting to the Past


Some places, especially simple yet interesting places, can make excellent pictures- as well as a place to go. This is Victor's 1959 Cafe, a Cuban restaurant in Minneapolis which is one of my favorite places. The mixture of colors, siding, signs, and lines all combine to make it an interesting picture. 1959 is right around the corner on Grand St. in Minneapolis.

This little guy reminded me of the marching mushrooms in Disney's Fantasia. What a remarkable little plant.

Blast From the Past

Sorry I missed a couple days last week. Things were busy and I haven't been doing picture management recently. Will try to get back on track this week, starting with a real blast from the past....

This scan of a slide goes back to say 1955 or '56 or so? My first (and only) dance recital as part of the Oly Waugh School of Dance. It didn't take me too long to discover that my sense of rhythm was in my head and not my feet. But it makes a great picture with me and my mother.

Getting Ready for 2008

Keystone, SD

Yes, this is a manure spreader.
Yes, this is a political comment.
I am already tired of the 2008 election campaign.

(Blue) Angels and Devils (Tower)

DevilsTower with the Blue Angels
Ninety-percent of good picture-taking is being in the right place at the right moment. Like being just southeast of Devils Tower in Wyoming when the Blue Angels went by on a training run.
