I got together with Fish Frye again yesterday, the band, not the food. Although they really liked their first photo shoot, I offered to do an additional shoot so we could explore a couple different locations, especially on a day where weather was on our side.
First we headed to the alley between the Mankato parking ramp and the Mankato Place Mall (part of the barmuda triangle).
Joe had a good idea to go over to the Kato Ballroom. The Kato has been around for over 50 years, and in its hay day put on shows from some of the classics, including Louis Armstrong, Buddy Holly, Chubby Checker, Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash, just to name a few. I mentioned how great it would be if we could actually go on top of the building by the sign, and before you knew it, we were banging on the door to see if anyone was around. Luckily, Joe knew the manager, and he gladly gave us a ladder and the go ahead. It was beyond fun being up there, and now I'm trying to think of new excuses to do so soon!
