I chose this image of Target Field for a number of reasons. The first reason being I am a huge sports fan and homer of all Minnesota professional sports. I also was drawn to the shadows captured in the outfield during this photo, adding a sense of uniqueness to the picture. Lastly, I believe Minneapolis-St. Paul is a beautiful city and this photo does a wonderful job of capturing that in the backdrop.

I like this picture, because it is tied to a specific memory for me. It was taken in late fall when the season was changing. Lots of things were changing in my own life as well. I believe I will always have a strong connection to this photo.

I really enjoy this photograph by Elliot Porter because it reminds me of my favorite panting, Almond Blossom, by Vincent van Gogh. The contrast of the blues and green with the pink of the blossoming plant really introduces simple beauty and a calming feel over the whole picture.
I really like this photo because I love photos like this where people mix two things together. In this case it's ice cream and flowers, personally two of some of my favorite things. It also reminds me of summer and the ice cream shops that are always busy because of the warm weather.
I really enjoy this photograph because it shows a very natural environment. A child is simply playing in a small stream of water. The focus is right on the child and its activities. The colors make it feel like a warm friendly environment even though it was shot in the winter hence the snow. This photograph was taken by Elena Shumilova.
