Autumn Colors and More Minneapolis

by Tom Nguyen in ,

I know, I know--it's been about three weeks since I last blogged, and I broke my goal of blogging at least a couple times per week.  If you're still following my blog, then I thank you for your patience and loyalty (that sounds like my apologies to my great customers who patiently await their comic art commissions).  It's been a crazy and stressful last few weeks on a professional and personal front.  Hopefully after this week, things will be (more) normal again, and I can write with more cheer and less gray hairs (only because I will have had time to pluck them out).

My photographer friend Alexis and I went out to capture some Autumn colors, just in time before I leave for San Antonio (again, for the 3rd time this year--I love Texas!).  Please bear with this entry (which is more or less filler) until I blog about my comic art, or photo shoots with naked chicks or bodybuilders with lighting diagrams again.  :D

All photos below were taken with the Olympus OMD-EM5; lenses used listed under each photo.  Long exposure shots were used with a MeFoto tripod.

This old bridge, which would have given us stunning views of the river, was blocked off and seems to have been defunct for years now.  Lens: Olympus 45mm/1.8
