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!
