Yarnbombing Makes the Neighborhood a Little More Cozy

I’m a big fan of street art, and I absolutely LOVE yarnbombing. I’ve even written about it before here on the blog: (Sub) Urban Knitting: A Tree Cosy Commission and Yarnbombing for Ma & Pa.

Well, I could hardly contain my excitement last Thursday when I saw that a fun and colorful yarnbombing installation appeared in my neighborhood in South Saint Paul, Minnesota. The cozies cover 11 ugly wood bollards that are supposed to prevent drivers from cutting through a closed-off end of the street. They look great!

According to small tags attached to the yarnbombs, the cozies were created by Zsa Zsa. More of her yarnbombing work can be seen on z-squared, and she’s on Twitter, too, @GuerillaKnitter.

The XA Files: Minneapolis

I’ve decided to create a special category here on the blog called “The XA Files” for photos and blog posts related to the Olympus XA camera. Quite a few 52-Rolls Project gang members shoot with the XA and after seeing lots of inspiring photos, I picked one up at KEH. I’m still getting the hang of it, but so far I’m enjoying it, although I still prefer my Lomo LC-A.

Wendell and I went to the St. Anthony Main Theater in Minneapolis to see “Finding Vivian Maier.” I took the XA with me and shot a few frames outside the theater.

This roll is number 13 of this year’s 52-Rolls Project. I have no idea what film I used! (See my post about making notes.) There’s no information on the negatives either.

The rest of the frames are on Flickr in the Roll 13/2014 52-Rolls Project album.
