Spoonbridge with Circular Polarizer filter
The other day I was reading an article on the Minneapolis Star Tribune web site about some work being done on a popular Twin Cities landmark, the Spoonbridge and Cherry sculpture. Workers would be removing the cherry so it could be repainted. Today, I decided I would wander down to take a few pictures of the cherry-less sculpture. First, I decided to stop by Best Buy and pick up a new UV filter and Circular Polarizer filter to experiment with while taking pictures in the sculpture garden. The cherry will be put back in place in a couple weeks, so for those of you coming to our Minnesota Meetup this summer, you will get to see a bright shiny and freshly painted red cherry!

See the video of the cherry being removed from the Spoonbridge and Cherry sculpture in the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden (StarTribune.com).

Here is a link to my previous blog entry about the Sculpture Garden with more photos of the Spoonbridge and Cherry sculpture in its complete form during a nicer time of year. We also spent some time here during the August 2008 Minnesota Meetup.

Great pics! I see you guys do have cutlery!

I am surprised the news articles on this event didn't make its way over to Canada, though...;)
