Old school

Signage near the corner of Cleveland and Randolph Avenues, Saint Paul, MN. Barber shop: still open; Jimmy's: closed and becoming a furniture renovation place.

Record Store Day

Did you get out for Record Store Day on Saturday? I’d entertained thoughts about it, but ultimately the reality of trying to jam several days’ worth of responsibility–family, catching up on projects for my paying job, doing some necessary household maintenance–into one gloriously beautiful and too-short Saturday put the kibosh on that plan. So if you braved the lines and the potential multi-hour waits, I hope you managed to snag some decent tunes. For my part, I rolled out of bed earlier than I wanted and hauled my sleepy butt down to the Mississippi River to get this shot of Saint Paul waking up.

Gangster shadows

Downtown Saint Paul, MN.

Double sun

Minnehaha Creek, near E. Minnehaha Parkway and 28th. I was in the neighborhood to stuff my face at Mel-O-Glaze Donuts and wandered up the road a bit. Found this spot. Liked it.

Bus stop lurker

I'd get away from there as fast as I could, fella.
