I suggest clicking on the pics to see them larger (I've resized them from the original file though).
From the Walker Art Center (which is south and a little west of downtown) on August 31, 2011:
Also from the Walker Art Center, but on the hill during Rock the Garden on June 18, 2011, on a rainy day and night:
From within downtown (Hennepin and 11th), during the Pride Parade, on June 26, 2011. I liked seeing the planes flying low on their way to land at MSP. Directly below the plane is Foshay Tower, the first skyscraper in Minnesota. The IDS Center is the one with 2 spires on top, now the tallest building in Minnesota.
