This week's "W" post for Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday was supposed to be about my trip to Chicago on Monday. It was even going to feature its nickname "Windy City." However, due to a couple of glitches including forgetting my camera's memory card and, more seriously, sustaining a knee injury on one of the city's many sidewalks, I ended up cutting my trip short and coming home without even visiting where I wanted to go. But I can walk, that's the important thing, and Chicago will be there when I decide to try and go back.
Well, since this blog is supposed to be about Milwaukee and Wisconsin, it's for the best. If you would like to see two of the photos I managed to take on my phone in Chicago before my accident, you can go to my other blog, Jay J Studio, here (shameless plug, I know, but I couldn't resist).
But, being a former theatre-person, as we say, the show must go on. So, I decided to post some of my favorite photos of bodies of water in the Milwaukee area. The top photo was taken two autumn's ago in Cedarburg, about 20 minutes north of Milwaukee.
I took the above photo last November of Lake Michigan while I was down in Racine.
The above photo is of Waukesha's riverwalk, located on the Fox River.
The photos above and below are of the Milwaukee River.
The last two photos feature Lake Michigan in Milwaukee. The last one was taken inside the Milwaukee Art Museum's gigantic atrium-like lobby, the Calatrava. I guess it's a popular spot for weddings.
I hope you like my water photos. As a Pisces, I'm naturally drawn to lake and river fronts, and they are great places to take pictures.
