Last weekend Victoria’s Aunt Lynn paid us a visit on her way to a conference. Her timing was perfect – the day she spent with us is also the one day of the week Victoria doesn’t have to teach. As such, we headed to one of our favorite spots in the cities – Mill City and the Stone Arch Bridge. I had my X-Pro 1 in tow, and managed to grab some shots worth sharing.
We started on the east side of the Mississippi, grabbing a quick coffee before heading over the Stone Arch Bridge.
Looking down from the bridge, it seemed I wasn’t the only one out and about with my camera.

Finally, we made our way over the bridge to the ruins of the Mill.
I don’t know all the details, but apparently Minneapolis used to be home to the largest flour mill in the world. Located on the Mississippi river, the Mill would process raw grain into flour to be used by all sorts of companies to make all sorts of stuff. The crumpled remains of the Mill are now the Mill City Museum, which I haven’t visited yet, but looks super cool.
Some day I’ll have to actually make my way inside.
