SO I maybe get near the Twin Cities once a year, usually around midnight, just skirting it on the way to North Dakota. The sky scrapers of St. Paul and Minneapolis are seen in the distance and I take pause to admire the architecture that is worlds away from Neillsville. This weekend however, the buildings were up close and personal and filled me with awe. The structures here must be some of the finest anywhere-not as many as some cities, but still, so impressive. A wedding of a close friend was celebrated in the downtown area along the Mississippi and we had a chance to stay right in the middle of these giants. As we walked around the center of the city I just had to just start randomly pressing the shutter. Not composing a thing-not even looking into the viewfinder (as maybe you'll be able to tell)....just walking and clicking. With the massive buildings on all sides, just angling the camera up is all I needed to do to get a few interesting images. I guess in the back of my mind, I didn't want to be seen as a tourist stumbling around taking snapshots in the big city, even though that was the most closest thing to what I was. Still, I couldn't stand that thought, so I tried to be sneaky in shooting with my compact camera.
