pictures of downtown Minneapolis

in no particular order...
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:
June 3, 2011, from the Witch Hat Tower (east of DT), on a rather smoggy day:

Also from the Walker Art Center, but on the hill during Rock the Garden on June 18, 2011, on a rainy day and night:
I like this one at night, it looks like the skyscrapers are steaming.

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.
From the rooftop of Cafeteria Restaurant in Uptown (southwest of DT) on July 24, 2010:
And one more (for now)! From Target Field, April 16, 2010. I like how the overhang from the upper deck frames the image.
