It’s a lovely time of year, isn’t it?

Photo of the Day
April 17, 2011


Friday night and Saturday morning brought yet more snow to what has been a long winter here in the Twin Cities. I had been dreading this spring storm. I’m ready for sun and warm temperatures. I awoke to find the trees covered in snow, always a beautiful sight.

I headed out in my car to start my day and took a wrong turn. I traveled the road for some distance. I’d been on the road before so it wasn’t unfamiliar. I came upon this pretty site and wished I had my good camera. Alas, the sun was starting to peek out, the snow was melting and dropping blobs on my windshield, and I knew I had to snap the photo or lose the opportunity. The cell phone camera won out in this race against time and temp.

The wrong turn became the perfect detour. What a great start to the day!

A beautifully detailed bridge at Lake of the Isles by Dean Parkway.
Minneapolis, Minnesota

This classically inspired concrete-arch bridge was the result of a design competition held by the Park Board. The winning designers were William Cowles and Cecil B. Chapman. Completed in 1911. Still beautiful and functional today.

The Joy of a Camera

Winter is waning. I went out with my camera late this afternoon and found myself surprised by the abundance of color already on display as the snow and ice melts. These were taken at Centennial Lakes Park in Edina, a suburb of Minneapolis, Minnesota.

I was in the area to check on a lockbox at my condo listing. An agent had told me it was jammed. Sure enough, it was.

Thumbs down about the lockbox. Two thumbs up for the pictures. I’ll post more later. (March 23, 2010 — Visit my flickr account by clicking on the photo in the sidebar to see more photos from this day.)
