Podcast #78 – Real Views of Minneapolis with Joe Scott

10986368784_b5536207e9_zThe podcast this week is a conversation with Joe Scott, an amateur photographer and snarky writer who does many of the Friday Photo features for streets.mn. A while back I met up with Joe at one of his favorite Minneapolis spots, the 24th Street pedestrian bridge over 35W.

Joe and I chatted about urban photography and different views of the city, and why he’s fascinated by things like freeway sound walls, concrete buildings, and ugly wire pedestrian bridges. Then we walked out onto the bridge and looked out the Minneapolis skyline, and to experience the way in which being on a freeway bridge kind of sucks. I hope you enjoy the conversation.
