This week, Tina at Travels and Trifles has selected Doors and Doorways as the subject for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge. I seem to have exhausted my supply of doors with Norm’s Thursday Doors challenge but I did find some open doorways in the Minnesota photo files, the first two taken in the State Capitol Building in St. Paul and the third in the Cathedral of St. Paul.

I’m a bit slow off the mark with Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge this week so I’m taking steps to remedy that right now.
Here are some steps at the State Capitol Building in Saint Paul, Minnesota.
And some steps inside the Daniel F. and Ada L. Rice Plant Conservation Science Center at the Chicago Botanic Garden. For more on Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge go to Steps: Indoors or Outdoors.
This week, Cee is looking for ways to get around for her Fun Foto Challenge so here are a few things that people drive (ride, pilot or captain.)
Two images captured downtown on the Chicago River. With all the traffic on the roads, sometimes the quickest way to get around is on the river.
A horse of a different color; one on the carousel at Como Park Zoo in St. Paul, Minnesota and the other at Arlington Park Race Track in Illinois.
And two cars on display at the Volo Auto Museum in Volo, Illinois. For more on Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge go to Things People Drive (ride, pilot or captain)
This week, the color is red, for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge, so I thought I’d share two of the pictures that I took while I was in Minnesota recently. The first was captured at the Cathedral of Saint Paul and the second in the State Capitol Building.

The topic for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge this week is Glass so I thought I’d share a few more images from our recent trip to Minnesota. I must say, these various photo challenges on WordPress have got me looking at things in a whole different light.
Pictures taken at Como Zoo & Conservatory, State Capitol Building and Cathedral of Saint Paul.

Especially for Norm’s Thursday Doors, here are just a few of the entrances that I have come across during my travels so far this year. We can never be certain where our path through life will lead us. For some it’s all a matter of faith. I prefer to think of it as fate.
Fourth Presbyterian Church on Michigan Avenue in downtown Chicago.
St. Peter’s Catholic Church on Madison Street in Chicago
Cathedral of Saint Paul in Saint Paul, Minnesota.
The BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Bartlett, Illinois.

The topic for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge this week is Sculptures, Statues and Carvings and this gives me the perfect opportunity to share some of the pictures that I took at The Cathedral of Saint Paul in Saint Paul, Minnesota, recently. Beautiful pieces of artwork to be seen both outside and inside the building.
