Ah - I wondered if that was the one you meant. It's just north of Loring Park ... I've never thought about what building it is, but it could be the rightmost one here, which is the Hyett hotel: http://www.phototour.minneapolis.mn.us/2259 - or it could be off the picture to the right. They put up steady red white and blue lights shortly after 9/11/2001, which most people I know thought was a bit excessive - I mean what if everyone did that? It was then all white lights for a while, then they implemented the morphing thing. > yeah I could kick ass with a good camera downtown Minneapolis. > Especially when there is a good sunset and/or when there is a good > fresh snow and blue sky. Driving into Minneapolis from the North on 94 during a good sunset is breathtaking: you can see the sunset reflected in the glass. I've never seen a photo of that.
