Monochrome Mondays



Several towns we visited during our River Cruise in 2016 had umbrellas strung overhead between buildings casting shadows on the small lanes as we passed underneath.  I can’t remember where this photo was taken, but it was a beautiful day and the umbrellas were a luscious shade of yellow, a beautiful contrast to the bright blue sky with a hint of clouds.  Switching to Black and White brought out the shadows and details of the display.




The Carlyle

The Carlyle, a 39 story luxury condo in the Mill district of Minneapolis, was built in 2007.  Units start at $350,000 to over $4 million offering impressive views of downtown along with 5 star amenities.  The historic Stone Arch Bridge, built in 1883 over the Mississippi River, offers additional interest to the scene.  Something new and something old.

Papa Lemur

Back in May of last year I posted a photo of a Mother Lemur with a baby.  There were several males in the “Conspiracy of Lemurs”, yes a group is called Conspiracy, that I was able to photograph.  They sit upright either on the ground or like this one in a tree.  I find them quite comical to watch.  The device around its neck is a transmitter that all adults wear so the facility can keep track of where they are in the Conservation area.
