St. Paul, Minnesota

I took this photo from Harriet Island on Sunday afternoon after the Grand Old Days parade. I was on the drive home from Mom and Dad’s house and thought… I don’t have a good photo of the city that raised me. I was literally downtown St. Paul everyday, being an only child and having two working parents I often would wander around the sky-ways, between both of their jobs. I did so so often that most of the local shop owners knew me and would look out for me. Now Dad works down at Harriet Island and I just love the view when I stop by to say hi. I know that a lot of people from the twin cities that think that each of the cities are far apart but coming from St. Paul and now living in Minneapolis, I think I couldn’t be luckier than to live where we have to major metro area so near, I guess that river side fear never got to me. So when I drive home from my many road trips, seeing this skyline means I’m home, at last.

These are a couple of the photos that I took yesterday on my travel on the city for city pages. I have never been out to Stillwater, I guess I thought it was far or something, which it’s not. It’s really a very beautiful and quaint town. There is a lot of cute little shops and art things, kinda perfect for a weekend getaway. These are the best 3 photos that I took of the lift bridge, though it may be really pretty and serine in photos, I heard from the locals and it’s actually pretty dangerous and the state(s) (because apparently it will take both Minnesota and Wisconsin) to fix the bridge and it being one of the only way over the river for miles could cause major traffic upsets. Humm… who knew a little bridge could cause so much debate. Well I guess we all do remember the 35w incident and that was a mess and a tragedy.

But back to the photos!! a much happier thing to talk about. 🙂 I think I like the last one the best, the angle, the vintage touch, just everything. Also it was the very 1st one I took too, I love how that happens sometime. Lucky enough to get it right, right off the bat. The middle one has the colors that I like to surround myself in, my whole apartment colors can be taken from that photo. The top one is kinda a play on all of those insagram photos everyone has been taking on their phones. I has always liked the look and know that i can re-create that look by hand on Photoshop.

I hope you all like them and remember I can do prints you would like to own one of these beauties! ❤
