Entering my senior year at Southwest High, I had the choice to play trumpet in the band another year or join the senior art class and study photography. You can guess what I chose, and I’ve never looked back. My photo teacher that year, Brian Sago, is also a skilled printer and he had several of his recent intaglio and screen prints in a gallery opening Friday evening. The show was at Highpoint Center for Printmaking in their beautiful new facility on Lake Street in Minneapolis.

I know this is kinda an off-moment (I was running late to see Funny People) but I really liked the perspective and lighting of the gallery space as seen from the street level outside. I’ll have to keep it in mind for a future shoot.

(“The Home of the Golden Breasted Woodpecker”)
Originally settled by the French during the late 17th century fur trade, Madeline Island now boasts 12 roads, 2 parks, a quaint downtown area and a bunch of beach cabins. My family spent the weekend mostly exploring the Lake Superior coastline and watching Harrison Ford movies (and dealing with an untimely flat). I had a very good time for the few days we were there but I don’t think it would take much more than a month to see and do everything the island has to offer. Not to mention the winter ice storms sound brutal.
