A few days off. Sorry guys. I started the morning at Augsburg shooting the Minnesota Duals, a quadrangular involving the four Division III wrestling schools in Minnesota: No. 2 Augsburg, No. 8 St. John’s, No. 18 Concordia and St. Olaf. This evening, I decided to try something new and shoot tennis. Having played tennis once 15 years ago and never having shot it before, it was quite a steep learning curve. I hope to shoot it again soon.

Jan. 1, 2012, Minneapolis -- A man lays down in the snow to take a picture of his custom bicycle in Loring Park near downtown Minneapolis, Minn. on the evening of Jan. 1, 2012. After a unseasonably warm December, Mother Nature took a cold turn on New Year's Eve, dropping 10 degrees, an inch of snow and blowing wind gusts up to 35 mph through New Year's Day, according to the National Weather Service.

Since it was so cold today after being warm in December, I knew I wanted something showing the cold and I didn’t have to go any farther than Loring Park to get this image of a man photographing his bicycle.
