While not quite the same, every time I walk back to the A Ramp in Minneapolis, I think of Take the ‘A’ Train, a signature tune of the Duke Ellington Orchestra and composed in 1939. Except my train is my Ford.
This skyway has a similar composition to a photo I captured in May in Loring Park of the Whitney Bridge, one of my favorite images of this year’s project. I only stopped for 2-3 minutes to take a photo, but clearly my business suit-clad self was deemed a threat because it wasn’t long after that I heard the loudspeaker call security. No matter, I was done. I’ve had to work quickly before.
