With the cars parked along Commonwealth Avenue and side streets around the Milk House, people walked up and down the streets taking photos and looking at engines under open hoods while classic cars drove up and down the street to show off to the crowd.
Two Harbors photographer Christian Dalbec is attempting to reunite a camera found on the bottom of Lake Superior with its owner. It's unknown how long the Canon Powershot point-and-shoot camera had been sitting on the lake floor, but the three photos on the camera are dated July 2, 2006. In two photos, four people smile at the camera while standing along the ledge above the Apostle Islands' mainland sea caves. Dalbec found the camera in the lake's depths below the ledge seen in the photos.

People typically question Nik Nerburn's motives when he walks up to them and says he wants to take their picture. Anticipating this response, he carries a stack of his photographs with him and hands them to the person. Seeing his photographs is usually the tipping point to the person agreeing to a photo, he said. He'll take a posed photo of the person and, using a small, handheld printer he attaches to his camera, he prints them a copy of the photo on the spot if they want it.

The cool water of the St. Louis River was enticing to the three boys standing at Boy Scout Landing with canoes on a hot July day. Eager to get going, the boys clambered into the canoes while nearby adults prepared for a two-hour trip on the river. Josh Johnson, the program manager at Neighborhood Youth Services, called to them, "Don't get in the canoes yet!" Climbing out, the boys debated what they should do if their canoe were to tip.
