This car up

This is in an Art Deco Building in downtown Duluth. Do you know what building this is?

Find out here.  According to  Zenith City Online: With very little public space to decorate the first-floor lobby became the building’s focal point. Its walls are faced floor-to-ceiling in dark tan Loredo Chiaro marble from Italy. The room’s lighting is concealed behind tilted marble tiles on the upper tiers. All of the metalwork in the lobby—the elevator doors, door trim, mailbox, etc.—is made of polished bronze. Terrazzo floors reflect the gleam of a gold-leaf ceiling.

Chain with Duluth touch

 

I took this photo at the Kenwood Duluth Caribou Coffee, I like there rough huge paneling, and coffee sized meeting table with the duluth skyline in the inlay of the wood.  Their effort to personalize the coffeeshop to Duluth is appreciated. Also their lighting and lamps are unique.

Bicyclists converge in Duluth

Two trailers full of bicycles sat in the parking lot of the Coppertop parking lot. I’m told it’s a group of Christain bicyclists traveling through Minnesota.

On the Rocks Ministries is a Christian non-profit place for kids to hang out. It looks like they have some very fun activities.

#ITCANWAIT

This vehicle has been sitting at an autobody shop for the past few day. I couldn’t resist taking a photo of this. I have no idea what caused the wreck, but it would be poetic if someone had been texting.

Today as I was driving, I was at an intersection where the cross street had the yield, but a driver of the car blew right through the their yield sign. I noticed he was using a cell phone.

Atonement

I walked by  the CJMM today and I took this photo at this angle to have a “Naomi’s guess where in Duluth.”

Do you know where this is located and do you know the story of the event and the story of the memorial.

Rainy day

Couldn’t take any beautiful ship photos today because of the fog and rain. It was raining so much that my little doggie wouldn’t go outside to go potty. So finally we walked outside with her. But that’s not a good image to think about. Think about the beautiful blossoming trees in Duluth and how the water helps them grow. We get 3 to 4 months of summer, we appreciate all the beauty we get

Busing it

I was in a hurry, to get  home before a thunderstorm, but I saw this bus and couldn’t resist taking a photo of it. I’d like to call it a hillbilly bus, (but I think that may be considered politically incorrect, but just seeing it make me want to break out with the song “Let me tell you a story about about a man named Jed….)or maybe it’s a hippie bus, or maybe it’s just functional and affordable for whoever owns it

Droplets

This Memorial Day we had a range of weather, a hard rain, with storms to the west, muggy, then hot and muggy with a bright sun. Then hot, and in the evening back down to the 50s. It was a beautiful day.
