Nighttime trips to the West Bottoms are favorites of mine. Last night was one such excursion. Below the 12th Street Viaduct with the skyline.. looking east.
Nikon D800. ISO 3200. F56 at a 20th for most shots. Ignored the meter. Going for a Tri-X kinda
Much more activity down there now even at night as more and more people are moving into the newly renovated warehouse spaces. Lofts abound. Never used to see anyone, now, runners, dog-walkers, people sitting on stoops chatting.
those kinds of emotions.
Coffee Shop I just discovered... must give it a try... in daylight.

At about this same time my Mother got a dog... Mack. A series of photos were taken celebrating that acquisition and showing the new house.... originally built in 1897. Above my Grandfather's 1932 Plymouth (I think that's the year and model). Plymouths were the "Grandfather Approved Make"... so our first two cars were Plymouths also. This view is looking south from the driveway in back of the house.
My father grew up in a house at 645 South Brighton just down the street from the church.
The rarest picture of the bunch. Taken in the late 20s... my Great Grandmother Amanda Johnson and her Husband (whose name I will have to dig for) on the farm in Hastings, Minnesota. He passed on before I was born, but, she was a part of my life.Negatives were scanned on an Epson 3200 at 1600 dpi. Whole images are shown, no cleanup.
