More graffiti and another seam on the rocky underbelly of a bridge. On this sixth day of the current heat wave, we do not have a Heat Advisory, instead it’s an Excessive Heat Warning with an Air Quality Alert.

Back to home ground and another place where we walk. The un-mown grass turned into a meadow.

This curved bridge separates nature from the busy city and is at the end of a path where we walk.

On the way to the bridge, sometimes the branches in the river make it look like a Southern swamp land.

Icicles and metal in the light. Concrete and graffiti in the shadows.

A berm, a bridge, two buildings, one made of bricks. I’m fond of the tower postage stamp and the fog, even though I can’t think of any B words to describe them.

This one is all about the background. Behind the almost bare branches is a bridge support half in shadow and half in sunlight, with the motion of the river reflecting and rust stains too.

Not as scenic as the settings in the children’s book The Little Engine that Could, but I couldn’t help thinking “I think I can, I think I can” when I saw this commuter rail engine climbing.

Going Back © Lynn Wiles 2012
There are some paths along the river that I have walked in the past, but due to their sketchy nature, I’ve not gone back. I could tell that some work had been done on this path, so I decided to try again. No more strange men passed out in tall grass, instead I found dreamy scenes of nature, water, construction, industry, and skylines.

Urban Colors © Lynn Wiles 2012
Every city seems to have a certain color scheme. For Minneapolis, it’s light stone and lots of blue. This is a detail of a bridge over the Mississippi with a blue glass building backdrop.
Walk with me – 2

Same walk as yesterday. I turn around when I get to the curved bridge.
On the way, I was taken by all the life, known as grown cover.
The blossoms from a different perspective.
The seed pods and early leaves of the bright maple.
And these are the leaves of the trees that ended the last post. I may not do this multiple postings again, but it’s a reminder that if one is open to seeing, what looks like a bland place can hold a lot to see.
