This week my thoughts are on water as I will be spending several days in the BWCAW in northern Minnesota.  Gooseberry Falls is along the north shore of Lake Superior and along the route we will take to get to our destination. Gooseberry Falls is a favorite of Minnesotans , visitors from around the country and the world.

Calm Crossing

Several years ago the Ira Bong bridge was closed, one direction at a time, for improvements.  Since this bridge happens to have a bike/pedestrian path that allows riders to cross between Duluth and Superior, I was able to go out a couple of times and have half the bridge to myself.  This gave me a rare opportunity to capture images that otherwise would be impossible to get, at least legally.  I made two trips during that time, one daytime and one nighttime.  Of all of the images, this remains one of my favorites.

Perhaps it was just a dream?

The memory is hazy, was it real or a dream?  Did I walk in this place or is it a place not of this reality?  The image exists, so the place must exist…somewhere.

The adventure of driving a backroad in rural Wisconsin during a blizzard.  Happy to note that many hours later, after getting stuck only once, we arrived safely at our destination.

Sometimes a group of objects will grab my attention.  And not just the objects, but also the light and shadow interplay with the group.  This group was on the sidewalk as part of a store display along the Nicollet Mall in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  The various shapes, lines along with the light and shadow made me stop and spend time with the collection.
