Reflected Glory - Hennepin County Government Cente
The other day I went on a photo outing with my local photo group “Shutter to Think”. I was leading this particular outing and I had a plan to go to Lakewood Cemetery in Minneapolis www.lakewoodcemetery.com/ and shoot the fantastic architecture in the chapel. We were thwarted there because there was a funeral going on so off to our second option. For the second option we decided to go to St Mary’s Basilica in Minneapolis because it is a wonderful architectural gem in Minneapolis. We get there and there was a wedding going on, strike two. Option three we ran over to the Minneapolis government building, you know the old place with the green roof. The place was locked up. When someone walked out of it and left the door open for a second we attempted to get in and a security guard comes running and out we go, strike three. Because we are intrepid photographers who are not easily deterred from our goal off to place number four, Hennepin County Government Center. The place was open but of course there were guards all over the place. They were nice enough but it quickly became clear that it was not ok to be taking pictures. So I quickly snapped off a few pictures so that it would not be a complete washout of a photo outing. Finally we went to the Hennepin county library and attempted to get a few shots from inside there. When the first guard come up to use he said we needed to get permission from the front desk. Being the rule followers that we are we went to the desk and asked for permission. The librarian told us we could do it and we went back to our task. Then the real security guard came over and told us we needed permission from the Hennepin Country offices to shoot in the library and it would take at least two days to get that permission. So again we were rejected. So I left our outing thinking that the event was a complete photographic failure. Of course we had a great time visiting with fellow photographers and throwing out great ideas for future outings. Then
