It rained. AGAIN. So as I was looking out the window at work today I was noticing the green grass that looked so perfectly manicured in the park and then I thought, why do they have all those winding curving circular paths and then end at the top of the hill with a square? So I took a picture of it.
Note to those checking back every day- I will be camping the next few days and will post all pictures on Monday night.
One of the many storm clouds passing us today. Don't read into the greenish tint of the clouds because I was taking the picture through window glass tinted lemon yellow and using the tungsten setting for white balance in an attempt to remove some of the yellow.
Ok, Disclaimer for those faint of heart- Its Fake! The show I'm working on right now uses stage blood for 2 effects and the one I rig requires use of a small syringe (with no needle) trying to force the stage blood into a small bulb; but they don't fit together so you just have to hold them tight and hope the blood goes in. So tonight my fingers slipped and the blood went all over my hand so I decided to take a picture of it.
I went out this evening to take pictures of the sun and everything green. This photo doesn't look like much but I liked the depth of shades of green in the tree leaves with the sun shining on it. So summery!
Today I went outside to the park by the Guthrie to eat my dinner and as I was finishing a couple of ducks wandered up. I ended up taking a lot of pictures of them so it was hard to pick just one to post.
Tonight I decided to try to catch the clouds from the 8th fl window. From up here the last few days they have looked like a blanket hovering over the city. I tried using a wide screen (panoramic) setting but the dreary grayness of the day made it hard to get enough definition in the clouds themselves.
Tonight I waited till dark to catch the view from the 8th fl (actually a stairwell window between 8 and 9th fl) at work. If you are thinking the color looks strange- all the glass on the 8th and 9th floor in all the windows is tinted yellow.
Went for a walk this afternoon. So nice to have some warm sunny weather. I took many pics in the park today and had a hard time choosing which one to post, but finally settled on this one from the baseball diamond. Central Park in Hopkins.
Today I went for a short bike ride and stopped at a small memorial park called Minnetonka Mills Crossroads at Minnetonka blvd and Plymouth rd. I took several nice shots of the creek and then saw a bed of daffodils and this was my favorite photo.
A little late on posting this picture. The day got away from me some how. I was out for a walk and the bell tower at St. Joesph Catholic Church started it's hourly chiming so I snapped a few shots of the tower. This one intrigued me with the building in silhouette against the cloudy sky.
