Culture with Nature

10 posts in this topic

We were at the Sculpture garden in Minneapolis this past weekend and took some shots of nature with culture. The hen Mallard was right under the Spoon and Cherry sculpture.

Nice pics!

Nice one, Dan! grin.gif

I have thought about doing that shot in the past, but wasn't sure if those trees flowered or not... I guess I should ask aloud if anybody knows?

Buzz,

The trees look like Hackberries not Cherries. It would be cool if they flowered but Cherry trees do not fair so well in our cold climate. The Hackberries have cool stucture and will get pretty big but do not flower.

The Stain glass was at Wesley Church next to the Convention Center. It is one of the oldest buildings in Minneapolis and on the National Historic Registry. Pretty cool place with a ton of history. I worked in Mpls. and never realized the history.

Here are somemore pics along with a few wooduck pics in Loring pond.

She was right under the cherry in that little patch of grass you can see on the first picture. The drake was close by chasing everything in sight. It was cool because you could watch her but there is no way you could get near enough to chase her off the nest.

    • I clearly stated protest marches and not specifically the womens march. So,knowing that do you still disagree with me?
    • No where yesterday during the woman's march was there violence or racism exhibited. Intolerant towards things Trump wishes to eliminate yes. The damage by vandals occurred on Friday by a group of thugs who had only one purpose in mind and that was to destroy property and create trouble during the inauguration. (DC police even said that and they expected it.) Yes the Woman March did leave garbage to clean up, which can be expected. If you have ever had the experience of cleaning a (female) public restroom you would find out they have a problem with garbage cans. I'm sure most did take their signs with them in the same manner most ice-fisherman take their garbage off the lake with them, but there are some who don't. The top photo is the only one that is of the Woman March.   
    • Can you explain why you feel that way?    
    • I do believe you are out of line with the racist, intolerant, vandals comment.
    • I will slow it down. I did not say you said it was rigged. Your party,however went after Trump for not saying he would accept the election results and then turned around and in large numbers proclaimed they didn't accept the results. I don't expect you to understand the hypocrisy of that but at the same time it's there.   Conjecture. You don't have a single slice of evidence this is the case and you would be wise to retract it because it has no basis. None. Yet even though this is the sort of thing your party is outraged about by the right, you are actually more extreme about it on your side.    While there is direct evidence that the DNC blatantly rigged the Democrat primary in favor of Hillary and committed all manner of things that came out in the Podesta/DNC emails there was no outrage on your side over what they did. Yet you jump on Trump for something that was sold as truth when it was literally the same fake news the Dems have been pushing all cycle.    Considering the contributions that flowed into the Clinton campaign coffers in all manners it would be best to leave that sleeping dog lie.    In the meantime. you might want to take ownership of the mess that the racist, intolerant, vandals that made up the protest marches because you own that.    
    • i always thought they were about identical smoked  
    • Rumor has it they are running a story next week regarding ice fishing and CO. 
    • Looks like one to me. Nice catch  
    • I thought you lefties were against fake news.   Guess not so much anymore.   At least you haven't attacked Barron Trump, yet, unlike your fellow travelers.
