Autumn Beauty

On Tuesday I spent the afternoon with a friend. We walked around Lake of the Isles. The crimson and golden hues presented plenty of photo opportunities. Here’s are some photos from the afternoon walk. Big thanks to my friend for stopping and waiting for me to capture all the images.

Framing Art with Architecture

I attended an art exhibit one day. A glance upward brought this window into view. I found I liked this window more than much of the art hanging on the walls and displayed throughout the space below this window. (Photographed with a cell phone.)

A Lake Harriet Home

This lovely home has a beautiful stone arch over the driveway. Beyond is a courtyard with a carriage house, garages, and a side entry. On this particular day, the sun was beginning to set and the waning daylight cast a golden glow across the facade.

This is a good example of why I love older homes. The craftsmanship is superb–the materials and construction hold up over time. We can’t say that about a lot of things made today. Additionally, the designs are classic, remaining uncommonly beautiful year after year. I’d like to photograph this home at twilight, with the lights on.

Below is a view of the front of the home.

There are many lovely homes along Lake Harriet Parkway in Minneapolis. I’ll be posting more photos of homes in the area in the coming days. Come back for a visit and we’ll take a virtual walking tour of Lake Harriet homes and architecture.
