Minneapolis Queen in Motion

Weekly Photo Challenge: Movement
July 7, 2012

I was on Nicollet Island yesterday afternoon. The Minneapolis Queen paddle wheeler came into view while I was on one of the bridges. Climb aboard for a fun summer activity. Paradise Charter Cruises offers public and private cruises on the Mississippi River through historic downtown Minneapolis.

    Love this in b & w!

    1. Thanks! I was having a tough time deciding whether to do the B&W or the color. I like this shot in both versions and may yet post the color one as well.

  2. Lazy Summer Riverboat – love it!

    I love the old look of this. Beautiful Photo!

  4. it was creative to post the picture of stately riverboat in black and white, enjoyed it

    1. Glad you enjoyed it. I’ve been perusing your blog on Midwestern culture and it’s taking me down memory lane. I grew up in Chicago and spent some summers in the Indiana and Michigan area. Beautiful country.

    1. Let me know when you’re playing and I’ll be aboard!

      1. Thanks for sharing more music. This was a nice piece for the quiet Sunday morning.
