Weekly Photo Challenge: Through

March 25, 2012

The prompt for the Weekly Photo Challenge this week is Through.

This picture isn’t very exciting but I thought I’d add it anyway in case someone hadn’t seen one before. This is called a ‘skyway’ and we have dozens of them in downtown Minneapolis and they connect buildings and you walk through them to get from one building to another. They’re especially useful in the winter. They’re interesting because the corridors leading to and from skyways are filled with restaurants, convenience stores, boutiques, dry cleaners and all sorts of commerce. They’re almost like small cities.

This picture is of stained glass windows taken through regular windows. The building was once the Charles S. Pillsbury mansion and since 1993 has been home to the National Federation of the Blind of Minnesota.


The next picture is aptly titled, “McDonald’s Pancakes: Almost Through”


Also aptly titled is this picture titled , “McDonald’s Pancakes: Through”


Finally, this is a picture of me through the looking glass.

Thanks for stopping by! Feel free to leave a link to your challenge response in the comments below.

    Well, it may not be exciting, but it is “through” and that was the main point. Nice one.

    Please feel free to drop by and view my interpretation of Through:

    Nicely done on the skyway. It’s a bit voyeuristic, no? You can walk through and look through at the same time.

    You have several “throughs” in this picture. I see a couple more skyways behind the first one and we are looking through the canyon created by the buildings. Nice post.

      Same here, Brenda. I like the pancakes and they’re about the only thing I like at McDonald’s. Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

    I really like the concept of skyways. We have a few in our town but no where near how you describe yours. And I love Mickey D’s pancakes, too. Great collection of photos. Thanks for sharing. You can see my entry here Thanks for visiting.
