A weekend in Minnesota

My trial balloon a few months ago to organize a “Day in the Life of Minnesota” project fell fairly flat. The goal was to get enough amateur photographers around Minnesota to submit one picture of some facet of everyday life on a particular day, combine them with everyone else’s contributions, and present a fairly impressive presentation of the varied nature of our fair partly cloudy state.

Maybe we should try it in increments.

Hundreds of people will read News Cut today, many have digital cameras. Just for the heck of it, would you be willing to snap a picture this weekend which captures a particular Minnesota moment and submit it here by Sunday evening? (Update: If you wish, you can use Flickr, but be sure to tag it “Weekend Minnesota.”) It could be an event you went to, just something interesting you saw, an interesting person you encountered, or an image of something you did to pass the time (Weeding the garden? Looking for tomatoes? Drag racing on a dirt road? Obeying the law and driving with hands in the 10 & 2 position? Getting the tractor unstuck in the south 40?). I’m less interested in scenery and more interested in people. And the theme could be good, bad, or ugly.

But please do not upload a picture that wasn’t taken this weekend.

I think we can do this. If you’re in, click the answer below to give me an indication of what to expect.
