Into Oblivion

Which, in a sense, is what this blog is going to be doing till spring.  The Minnesota Slip Bridge will be put in the down position for the season on October 23rd and will no longer require operators.  I look forward to being back in the spring when it resumes operation.
In the meantime, you can follow my Northern Visions Blog to keep up with my photography.  If you are interested in prints of my work, you can find some at the Art Dock in the Dewitt-Seitz Marketplace or you can order directly from me and save 25%.

Lines and Shadows

Although I usually bring reading material and other things to occupy my time between bridge lifts, I’m often just studying the details of the harbor.  Besides the boat traffic, there’s the effect of light and wind on the water, the play of light on the various structures that surround the harbor and the land traffic as well.  One area that I am frequently attracted to is the Cargill grain terminal.  It stands out by virtue of being painted white and when the late afternoon sun hits it, it literally glows.  Also, the shadows cast by the elevator to the west add to the geometry of the composition.
