Wanna a chance to win a Latte?

The Winner has been picked and it was Noel (she posted her comment on Facebook)!

Your job is to look at the three pictures below and tell me which one is your favorite. From those votes, I will do a random integer run of them and pick a winner. I think they all our special on their own merit, but wanted to see what everyone else loves too. The winner will have the choice of either a $5.00 gift card to Caribou or Starbucks. Have fun :)!

IMG_8131 IMG_8140 IMG_8144 copy IMG_8145 copyI didn’t take too many pics at Munsinger as the heat from the son, done wore me right out.

Here are a few I took though!IMG_8150 copy IMG_8162 copy IMG_8165 IMG_8167 copy IMG_8170 IMG_8179 copy At the end of the walk we met at Coffee Bean for a treat (hmmm, a nice cold smoothie for me thank you very much!) and a visit with the other walkers to share our thougths on the time walking and taking photos.

Worldwide Photowalk

IMG_8041 copy On Saturday, July 24th we attended the Worldwide Photowalk. It was a beautiful, beautiful day!!!

Here was the description of the walk that was planned and  that I posted on the St. Cloud spot on the site:

The walk will start at the front of the Atwood Center bldg (178th 6th St. S.) on the SCSU campus. Feel free to park across from the Atwood Building in the Garvey Parking lot. From there we will walk throughout the SCSU campus, then cross over University Bridge and walk through Munsinger Gardens. The SCSU campus affords for a great amount of architectural photo opportunities with the mix of newer buildings and historic as well. There are also plenty of landscape shots near the river. By walking across the bridge and over to Munsinger Gardens there will be an additional opportunity to capture the beauty of a well known St. Cloud landmark. The previous year we walked the Downtown St. Cloud area, so we were hoping to offer another St. Cloud area to photograph.

Our final destination will bring us to the The Corner Bean Coffee Shop attached to the University Crossings Bookstore at the intersection of 9th Ave and University Dr. S. (927 9th Ave, Saint Cloud, MN 56301).


It worked out just as we planned. I loved that everyone that took pictures took completely different shots…photography is so cool that way! If you want to see what everyone else took, head out to this Flikr site and check to see what they took. I will post some of mine below and a few more on another post.
