Construction Avenue

Downtown Minneapolis from the top of a parking ramp.
A group of us photo enthusiasts; Mitch , Bob , Matt , Werner , Greg , my neighbor MB and his son, Ty, and I hit the streets of Minneapolis for another photo walkabout last Saturday. Fun as always with no major mishaps. Although so many people asked us what we were doing. Sort of evident with all of our camera gear.

I was summoned by six lovely women to take a group shot of them on the Nicollet Mall. I forgot to get permission to post their photo here, I hope they approve. And I must say I was pleased with the result.

Thanks to Mitch for setting this one up. And a special thanks to Bob for making the arrangements for the Foshay Tower excursion and the use of his office for a spectacular view of the city.
