Hello! We had the best time on Saturday! My worlds collided when I went to work at the Art Shanty Projects as their photographer but then I hosted a Minnstameet as well!
Local Instagrammers came from all over to meet early Saturday morning and have exclusive access to the Shanties. Whole Foods was kind enough to provide a huge spread of baked goods and warm coffee. The Kim Bartmann restaurant group sponsored our contest and three lucky winners got $40 gift cards to a restaurant! The ASP artists were so kind to come out early and open their shanties to our group!

I spent the day photographing the "Humans of ASP" (my nod to HONY.) In the morning I shot a lot of the Minnstameet participants. In the afternoon I stayed and photographed the festival attendees!
I am giddy everytime I go there. I just love the joy you feel in the air there! It is such a great, open, community event! I think you'll see in my photos that others feel that joy too!
