It amazes me that there are areas of Minneapolis that I’ve never seen.  Driving home western Wisconsin last weekend we got lost trying to find an architectural salvage yard.  We vaguely knew that it was on the edge of downtown along the river, but not much more.  In the process of trying to find it, we got lost.  But the beauty of getting lost in your own town is that you uncover such wonderful treasures you never knew existed.

I love abandoned buildings, airplanes, ships and virtually anything large and creepy looking.  Around the world, humanity has left these monuments as a relic of a time gone by. While the Egyptians left the Pyramids and the Khmers left us Angkor, Minneapolis will leave behind a decaying footprint of our industrial past.  We hide these places tucked away from our daily commutes, but they still exist.  While tragic and most likely polluting, they’re a beautiful reminder  set against the skyline of a modern city who has developed a moral conscience to take care of our people and our planet.

Spring will bring more urban exploration of these sites, as I uncover the hidden and abandoned parts of my beautiful city.
