The abandoned I 94 Cafe, located just off the interstate, somewhere near Bismark, North Dakota.  I’ve been spending a lot of time driving around North Dakota lately, but haven’t had the time to stop and capture many of the sights that have caught my eye.  I’m planning to take a week or so next year and explore northwestern Minnesota and the Dakota’s at harvest time when there are so many opportunities for contrasting colors.  I also discovered that due to the flat nature of the area, the sunsets last much longer than they do in the part of Minnesota I live in.

The background fades away, sounds seems distant and thoughts drift on a gentle breeze.

A Midsummer’s Daydream

What started out as a photo of the reflection in the mirror, became something totally different.  Edges began to blur, light became liquid and reality was open to interpretation.

Camera: unknown, original settings: unknown, artistic effects done in Photoshop, further tweaking in Silver Efex Pro 2 and finished in Lightroom CC Classic.

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.

A Penny For Your Thoughts

One of the gorillas at the Como Park zoo in St. Paul, Minnesota.  I can’t help wondering what he is thinking as we all stand around and stare at him as he stares back at us.

Walk This Way

Under normal lighting, this boardwalk is pretty tame.  However, with a little post processing, it becomes a bit more sinister.
