Between 2003 and 2006, I spent three memorably enjoyable years in Minneapolis and working at the University of Minnesota. I visited the Twin Cities as one of many destinations during my year-long RTW in 2012, and I returned again briefly in 2019 to see what became of the city.
I lived the entire time in what is colloquially known as Uptown, known also as Lowry Hill or East Isles. But “Uptown” was good enough with a mix of different people, little restaurants and cafés, a variety of commercial activity, a synagogue, temples to religion and drink, and small lakes within easy walking reach. Whether the `hood has gotten too hip for its own good is left as an exercise to the interested reader.
But better that a working diner served as reminder of Dad’s working heritage. The Uptown Diner goes 24 hours on the weekends; that breakfast- or burger-platter at 2am hit the spot, before waddling that final block back to the apartment building.
I made the photos on 14 March 2019 with a Fujifilm X70. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-gn9.
