The beauty of Lake Minnetonka Magazine, in my estimation, is partly due to the monthly marriage of words and images, wonderfully brought together thanks to our writing team, contributors, photographers and art department.
It’s clichéd because it’s true: A picture is worth 1000 words. But a picture of Lake Minnetonka, its community landmarks, its events, its pets?
Located in the Mill District of downtown Minneapolis, Tiger Oak Media publishes more than 30 regional print magazines, with corresponding digital media, including digital editions, e-newsletters and sophisticated websites.
Some of the best photos involve candid moments featuring people who weren’t necessarily the intended subject.
One spring 2014 announcement turned into a whirlwind of opportunity for current sixth graders Victor Yang, Ayden Tiede and Aidan Barker. The boys, friends since kindergarten and all active in Boy Scout Troop 409 in Excelsior, embarked on a journey to build a wind energy system.
Sometimes local landmarks get overlooked. We see them so often that we begin to stop seeing them all together. The Minnetonka Beach water tower on Lafayette Bay is an example—many people boat by it every day without recognizing its historical significance and beauty.
Many rely heavily on the companionship of their dogs, but don’t often stop to really honor them.
