Tilt-Shift Downtown Des Moines Throwback | Iowa Landscapes

Being a photographer you find yourself taking thousands of photos, and never editing the ‘fun ones’ or ‘not paid shoots’ aka years later you find all these awesome RAW files and editing them like “OH MAN HOW DID I NEVER FIND THE TIME FOR THIS!” Well, January years later is the perfect time!

While searching to put together a gallery of all our landscapes over the years I came across this stormy June afternoon wandering around my old loft in East Village and downtown Des Moines. It’s crazy how much has changed since 2011! The World Food Prize building was under construction, the old Riverfront downtown YMCA was still alive and kicking, the amazing Locust Tap was open, the Nollen Plaza (now Cowels Commons) wasn’t yet under construction as it is today and Amiee was yet to have moved to her new fabulous location just to name a few.

So fun to see how many great changes have been made in the last few years just within a few blocks! Also this fuels my need to purchase a tilt-shift more than ever. Enjoy the throwback Des Moines residents!

Occasionally for fun we venture out and take a few landscapes after shoots or on a weekend we aren’t busy. Over the years I’ve been asked alot where people can buy our fun photos of Des Moines, well wait no longer! The gallery is located here: http://ztsphoto.smugmug.com/Landscapes/Landscapes-by-ZTS-Photo/

Great for your office, home or a gift! Why not decorate your wall with Des Monies goodness?!  I’d suggest ordering metal prints, 20X30 high gloss finish. Ships right to your house, you can checkout online no pickups, super easy quick and painless!

Anyway, have at it! And if you do buy one please send us photos of them hanging on your walls to info@ztsphoto.com

I love the photos already hanging all over Des Moines in offices. So cool to see our work brighten up a room! After-all what cooler way to represent your city than fun photos of your favorite places!
