The Minneapolis City Charter contains this provision: “When satisfied that the applicant is of good moral character and has met the requirements of this chapter, the director of licenses and consumer services shall issue a license to the applicant to engage in the business of street photography, and shall furnish the applicant with a circular badge not less than two (2) inches in diameter which shall contain the words “Street Photographer, License No. ____________.”
Good thing we’re ignoring the city charter these days! (Actually this provision only applies to commercial street photographers who attempt to sell photos to their subjects, but I couldn’t resist the zing.)
Anyway, please enjoy these excellent street scenes from Minneapolis by Ernesto De Quesada.
