Night shots of St. Paul

I was out with a few photog buddies last night and before we started in on the barley pops, we took a few pictures.

Taken in Rice Park looking at the Landmark Center.

Just a view from a hill over looking the frigid city.

Beautiful as usual, Buzz. If you ever want to move to Worthington and work as a photographer for the Globe, I'll recommend you in a heartbeat grin.gif

Boilerguy said you wanted a copy of the paper that had the article from you guys came down to Avoca. I need an address to send it to. Can you email it to me? Check the dglobe.com HSOforum for my work address.

Hey Buzz, that's not a bad offer. Jim Brandenburg got his start at that very paper, if memory serves. grin.gif

Nice work, too, by the way, Buzz. Somehow, I think the Globe doesn't pay as well as what Buzz makes, but I'm just guessing.

Mrs. Boilerman, what's your job at the Globe?

I'm a crime and courts reporter - ignore boilerguy. I never nag grin.gif Wow, I almost typed that with a straight face, lol.

Brandenberg did start out here, as well as a few other awesome photographers and writers. We're kind of to journalism what the Twins are to baseball - training grounds until you are worth the big bucks.

Interesting, Mrs. B. One of my gigs at the Grand Forks Herald was as a crops, courts and crime reporter for several years, as well as being a region editor. Went to the Duluth News Tribune from there as city editor supervising reporters, including the crime guys. Not such a fun world, though rich with drama and stories, and it was nice to break away from it and move to Ely.

Crime doesn't pay when you're a criminal, but it keeps crime reporters in green. Although, of course, not much green. grin.gif

I love the crime beat, but it does tend to make a person a little twitchy at times. But you know what they say about reporters...we are all just gossips that can write grin.gif

All things considered, I'd rather be with my guy up on Winnie right now instead of avoiding working on a story about bad checks and trying to track down a judge. Sigh.

Shouldn't that be "gossips WHO can write?" grin.gif

Sorry, once an editor always an a$$hole, as we reporters used to say among ourselves.

And you're right about judges. Of all the folks I had to talk to, they were the least likely to return calls.

    • 😄i have several "pet" spiders around the deck and garage. sometimes when i'm bored i swat flies with the swatter and feed them!!!!!!
    • its wierd, my cukes the stems from the ground out look like they were died and dried out but the ends were green, plenty of flowers and producing.quite frankly, i got 2 medium size boxed of cukes in the frig i need to use or give away. i know this isnt right to say, i'm getting cucumbered out.   same with the peppers, i had to look thru a jungle to find them most of the summer as the cukes exploded and basiclly covered them. i have enough peppers for what i need, froze some for chili, and have eaten my share. and again there were no small ones coming in to keep them in the ground to make it till first frost.   my tomatoes, the ones i may be pulling soon are running out of tomatoes worth while . 
    • That's too bad, did your garden get dried out at some point? You had a pretty good start to the season and had a jump on my garden.
    • I assume you burned your deck down immediately after taking these photos.
    • Never been a big fan of webspinners, but those orb weavers are cool to look at and harmless. And this is the time of year that you seem to see them.   More of a fan of Wolf and Jumping spiders myself.  
    • Cool!  Did you take a picture when you smashed it? That big som-abatch could use a 22 through it! 😘
    • Maybe that is the way they are going to move it all on-line?  
    • Found a giant lichen orbweaver with prey and a Nordmann's orbweaver hanging around our deck.
    • I guess it depends what you are looking for. I just picked up 2 pairs of jeans for close to 50% off but this was also online and not a store.
