Looking at the city through the lens of a camera can give you an entirely different perspective. Instead of just seeing buildings, you see shapes. And texture. And history. Cases in point: In Minneapolis, traces of a 7 Up ad at Washington and 1st avenues N. and a close-up of the Frank Gehry-designed Weisman Art Museum highlight the city’s artistic edge. A green light goes from ordinary to eye-catching when given the chance. And you can also find beauty in the most ordinary of places — Cedar-Riverside’s architecture reflects Modernism’s influence with its pattern inspired by Dutch artist Piet Mondrian. Go ahead, pick up a camera and give it a shot.
