I feel bad that I've gone two months without posting to this blog. I would like to say that my summer has been so jam-packed, I haven't had time to write anything - but that would be false. Truth is, I haven't done too much in Milwaukee this summer. I missed all but one of the festivals, didn't go to any outdoor concerts, or take any trips besides the one to Savannah. This is mostly due to not having the money to do any of these things. I also had a volunteer job taking performance photos for a local community theatre, but it turned out to not be as much fun as I thought it would, and I just resigned. Also, last summer, I made my big purchase of a Canon DSLR camera, and spent the entire summer going places and taking photos. So, I feel like everything I wanted to do, I did last summer.
I did get out a few times this summer to take photos, though. I went down to Milwaukee's South Shore (aka Bay View), and got some shots of the boats there:
I even found a cool "history of Bay View" mural:
At the end of June, I volunteered at the Lakefront Festival of Art, and took some photos of the great sculptures before my shift:
And then a couple of weeks ago, when it was overcast but not rainy, I practiced my macro flower photography at a local park's garden:
I'm hoping to stay more up-to-date on the blog. I just took some photos this morning before brunch with a local Meetup group. If those photos turned out as I hope, I will post them this week.
