I heard that some of you went for a street photography excursion. What a pity I could not come along. But here is one of my own favorites, from the US, August 1st, 2014. People sit on a hill in gold medal park above the banks of the Mississippi in downtown Minneapolis to enjoy the sunset. The name of the park is a reminder of the history of the place: the banks of the river were lined with flower mills. The Gold Medal mill in the background was converted into a museum. In between the landing of the Guthrie Theater stretches out towards the river. The owner of the two manicured dogs leaves just as the sun is setting behind the theater
I love how the flash made the flowers stand out against the dark night sky. Enjoy!
The flowers in my yard are beginning to bloom. This was taken just after a rain. Liked it in Black an White as well.
Die Blumen in meinem Garten beginnen zu blühen. Dies wurde kurz nach einem Regen aufgenommen. Gefiel es auch in Schwarz und Weiß.
More about downtown Merced. I still can’t believe how many life stories, beauty, and charming decay speak from all corners … just walking for two hours along a hardly 1 Mile long stretch of old downtown, I collected stories and little impressions to generate posts here for weeks to come…
Already, the first two upscale hotels in renovated old buildings cast their shadows to the future to come, will it be gentrification? How will it impact the people calling this old downtown of past glory their home base? Until then, I feel the urge to freeze some of the life stories unfolding and imprints visible all over. Today, my photo is about the possibilities shop windows can provide to create colorful impressions. Playing with color fuels our imagination. Don’t you think so? Enjoy!
