Sunday Ramble St Paul, MN

This past Sunday we enjoyed the Nooks and Crannies Tour at the historic  Landmark Center in downtown Saint Paul MN

This included a climb up many stair cases to the North Tower, from which you can see the entire city and Mississippi River. Check out the variety of cultural and art events happening on Sunday at Landmark. (I am looking forward to the Rose Ensemble November 26th – among other events!)

 

 

 

Kenny & Weekly Photo Challenges

In looking back at recent weekly photo challenges, I noted ‘cherry on top‘ and ‘details‘. This pic of Kenny has a ‘cherry’ (I love the light that floats high above his head) and the ‘details’ of the windows that open up to the ruins and sky; the rough stone, and the thoughtful pose of a young man considering his future…

City House & Red River Kitchen

Finally! The sack house  on the Mississippi will be more than an historic footnote! The Saint Paul Municipal Grain Terminal, built between 1927 and 1931, represents what was part of St. Paul, MN’s great history as a river port city. Happily, the structure was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2004. Now referred to as City House, it abuts the Sam Morgan Bike Trail and will soon be host to the Red River Kitchen, an offshoot of the popular Republic Bar in Minneapolis. Fingers crossed, it looks like the food truck doors open August 1.

A Bride, A Horse, Rock ‘n Roll and a Tumble

Do I have your attention?! 🙂 I helped a friend out by taking photos at their wedding, got taken by surprise by a horse I was photographing (he really wanted the carrot) and went to the Minnesota State Fair!
