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.

Throughout the day, I felt like I was back in New York City. Maybe it was the old stone apartment buildings reminiscent of Brooklyn, the Copper Hen cakery and Glam Doll gourmet doughnuts, the Russian cocktails on the patio, the graffiti and odd art sightings, or the gigantic cathedral.
Whatever it was, it left me nostalgic for the greatest city in the world. Happy I can find aspects of it wherever I go.
