What a clean eye you have.

I like that: a "clean eye." Yes, it surprises me, sometimes, my Zen eye... cutting through an otherwise many layered, collaged aesthetic.

I'm sure you could enter these somewhere. Good shooting.

That's what I like about blogging, Deanna: I have "entered" them here! That takes care of my desire to share.

Wow, you capture the beauty of the city, its lines and angles, so well. The beautiful copper roof of the courthouse! YOu make me so happy I'll be there in just a couple of weeks...

fresca said...

I'd love to see your take of your city too, Jen!

Love the pictures of Mpls! The Grain Belt Beer one gave me a little stab of nostalgia.

fresca said...

Come visit--I'll buy you a bottle!

Beautiful. You have quite the eye...

Well, buildings are easy... If I could capture people, that would be something.
Glad you like them!
