Keep Walking…

Minnesota Slip Bridge

Now that I have been through orientation, have been given a name badge and a set of keys, I can officially announce that I will be a part-time bridge operator at the little blue bridge this summer.  The bridge connects the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center complex with Canal Park and the Lake Walk.  I look forward to being near the water, meeting lots of people and sharing my love of Duluth and the north shore of Lake Superior.

Solar Effects

Usually, shooting into the sun is not recommended, but I kind of like the effect in this image.  It’s bursting with energy, pouring it down out of the sky.

On The Radio

Back in March I was invited to be interviewed by Crystal Detlefsen of KUWS, the radio station at the University of Wisconsin-Superior.  The interview was broadcast on March 28th and wouldn’t you know, I was out of town and missed it.  However, Crystal was kind enough to present me with a copy to share with people who do not live in the area.

Here is the link to the interview, which is on my YouTube site.

Marching Onward

My month long visit home has ended and I have returned to Minneapolis again.  Sports photography begins at the end of next week and my sister is arriving from Florida later today.  She claims she likes taking a break in cooler weather, but she may get more than she bargained for on this trip.
During the month of March I was able to accomplish many things that had been awaiting my attention, however, there is always much more for when I return home next.  I managed to sneak in a few photo trips while home, some of the results were shown in previous blog posts.  As I was kind of quiet during the past month, I thought I would share a few glimpses of how I spent some of my time in the Duluth area.  The image with the blue bridge highlights my upcoming summer adventure.  I will be a seasonal operator of the bridge, which opens to allow the tour boats, fishing charter boats and private craft to pass on their way out to Lake Superior.  Part of the job is to be an ambassador for the city of Duluth.  You can be sure I will always have a camera with me on this job.
