Photo album: April snow downtown

Northfield, S. Hwy 3, April 28, 2012Downtown Northfield, April 23, 2013
Last year at about this time of April, I wrote in a blog post “I noticed yesterday that dozens of new trees had been planted along South Highway 3…” and included 4 photos like the one on the left above. This morning we woke up to 6 inches of wet cement. It’s been one of the coldest and snowiest Aprils on record. Good thing we’re tough.

Photo album: Paul Krause’s documentary premiere of Fred Somers’ painting ‘Genesis’

Paul Krause's documentary premiere of Fred Somers' painting 'Genesis'I went to the premiere of Genesis: The Art of Creation at Carleton College’s Weitz Cinema last night.

‘Genesis’ is a Paul Krause documentary about Northfield artist Fred Somers and the creation of the largest painting of his career. I blogged about it earlier this week.

If you missed it, you’ll have another chance on April 11, 7 pm at St. Olaf’s Viking Theater in Buntrock Commons.

Photo albums: engaged citizens and the Northfield Public School District

Back in mid-January, I took photos of people speaking at open mic at the Northfield Board of Education meeting about the proposed calendar (blog post here).  This week, I took photos of people attending the calendar conversation meeting at the High School (blog post here).  I had my consulting hat on for both events but I thought I’d blog the photos here on LoGro, adding to my collection of 15,000+ photos of Northfield-related events and scenes since 2003.

My ten-year love affair with Winter Walk

councilors in the Winter Walk parade 2008Northfield’s Winter Walk has been near and dear to my Northfield-related blogging, photography and podcasting for ten years (this year is the 14th Annual Winter Walk):

A year ago, I blogged two of my favorite Winter Walk photos. I’ve included another favorite with this blog post: Council members Rhonda Pownell and Betsey Buckheit with Mayor Mary Rossing in the Winter Walk 2008 parade with the NDDC’s cow, Patty Cash.

See y’all downtown on Thursday.

Photo album: downtown Riverwalk fall colors, way past peak

Fall colors, Riverwalk, downtown NorthfieldI’ve been neglecting my Northfield-oriented photography hobby lately but yesterday, after getting my hair cut by Lana Huberg at Salon Synergy (her third Wigley customer of the week), I noticed that the fall colors along Riverwalk were particularly stunning, even though we’re technically way past peak color.  With the low gray cloud cover and light wind, it made for good photography conditions.

A few of the regulars from the Northfield Community Band have formed the Bridge Square Band and made their debut at the Taste of Northfield last week.

Trumpet player Dan Bergeson introduced the band to the crowd and they got a few numbers in before the storm hit.
