While in Minneapolis earlier this week, I had an opportunity to take advantage of the weather with a stroll through downtown streets around my hotel.
Following the thrill of shooting a roll of black and white film for the first time in 15 years, I went in search of textures to shoot with my Nikon D100 with the intention of converting the images to black and white in Lightroom. Minneapolis certainly had them.
Although I wasn’t able to get out as much as I had originally hoped, I did have an opportunity to go out briefly one additional evening to gather some additional images from the streets of Minneapolis. Unfortunately I missed the scattered rain showers that passed through Minnesota while I was there, so the stylized black and white “wet” look I had envisioned didn’t quite materialize for me.
As it turned out in contrast to my original outing, color is what caught my attention on this trek. Working in color also provided an opportunity to return to some of the original images I had shot earlier in the week that didn’t quite work in black and white. So, here are a few more images from my stay in Minneapolis. All were shot on a Nikon D100 with a Sigma 18-50mm lens and edited in Lightroom.
It was a fun exercise to wander the streets of downtown Minneapolis. I may have to consider doing the same in downtown Fargo at some point.
