Friday Photo – Street Photography

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.

    Wow these pics make Mpls look like some cool, gritty east coast city instead of the pile of bland that that it actually is
