I almost never remember my dreams.
Last night I remembered two.
One about love, one about love lost.
I wish I only remembered one.

"dreams can chase you down
the winding worm sleeps in a bed of clay
and all that's lost is found to be made
of the broken little bits of yesterday

so i wait in the wind with my hands hung out
i weep and spin in the shadows of my doubts
shed my age as the lights burn out
finally it settles into my little heart
that dreams can chase you down"

The Low Anthem - Dreams Can Chase You Down

mpls at night

I finally took some photos around the city at night. Well, not around the whole city, just one area. Of course I had to wait until my last few days in the city to do this project. And because I was just walking around close to home, it may not have yielded the variety of shots I was hoping for. But I think all in all they turned out pretty well.

my fourth

For the first time in a long time, I was actually looking forward to the 4th of July. To me that meant spending the evening with some good friends, grilling some meat, drinking some beer, and taking pictures of the fireworks. And just to get three out of four would be great on any other day, except yesterday. I let the fact that I didn't take pictures of fireworks bother me, and I think that bothers me more than anything else. I had a good time last night. So what if I couldn't manage a great viewpoint for fireworks pictures. The view we had was special in its own way. The fireworks just peaking around the trees and over the bridge. It was just us, no strangers. We were right on the Mississippi River, for crying out loud! The crescent moon setting on the horizon. Why would I want to give that up for a better spot to take pictures??? Plus, I still think I got a couple decent shots of the night.

seven - four - eleven

Not your average set of stars and stripes...

Hopefully some fireworks photos will be added in the next few days.
Happy 4th of July!
