Intersection: Seventh Street East and North Wacouta Street, St. Paul

After a lunch date at the Buttered Tin with a dear friend, I stepped out and was reminded how photogenic Lowertown St. Paul is. Its energy, mixed architecture, local color, and meshing of the low with the high brow satisfies the eyes and kisses the soul.

The days are shorter and colder. My stamina for standing outside for long periods of time looking for the perfect photo op is waning with the light. However, intersection montages continue to pique my interest, and usually don’t require more than 10-15 minutes of exposing my camera and bare fingers to the elements.

Today’s travels took me to a St. Paul intersection in a neighborhood that borders Interstate 94. It’s a mixed area bursting with old buildings, industrial warehouses and businesses, and grand Victorians and pre-war homes tucked away from the main traffic. The side streets curve and slope, keeping you guessing what’s around each corner.

I stopped at this particular intersection because I liked the light reflecting off the windows of a restored brick building and the Rothko-esque graffiti spray painted on the nearby railroad overpass.

An appealing assignment that I like to tackle now and again: Pick a random intersection and start taking pictures. The more random and less traveled, the better. It’s never difficult to find something to shoot.
