seeing double

I caught the reflection of this fire escape in Milwaukee's historic third ward.

I came across these very cool fire escapes in owensboro KY.

cargo in the desert

I really like this photo. It was taken in a rather desolate industrial area on the edges of Cedar City, UT. I thought this a nice companion to yesterdays post.

Bays for days

These windows are from the beautiful chemical building in St Louis MO. I have always been interested in repeatng patterns and I believe I was quite successful in capturing that idea in this image.

A laurel and a hardy handshake

This post will complete my series on statues. I planned on something else but remembered this shot and could not pass up the chance to make a reference to a Mel Brooks movie. Bonus points if you can name the movie.

A rose by any other name

Staying with this week's unintentional theme here is Shakespeare's Juliet sans Romeo.

over there

I thought this image a nice follow up to yesterday. My brother in law introduced me to this memorial to the soldiers of WWI in Appleton Wisconsin.

Robin at the bat

A different hall of famer and a different stadium to continue on with yesterday's theme. It must be the break in the cold weather that has me in this mood. I love the contrast of the blue sky against his swing. I tried this angle with similar statues but I thought this shot to be the most successful attempt.

Longing for spring

A shot of the Stan Musiel statue outside Busch Stadium. We were hurrying into the park when I glanced behind me to catch this view and thought to snap a shot. A sunset may be more apprpriate for the end of the season but I thought it a warm image for a cold winter day. Now when do pitchers and catchers report?

Miwaukee Art Museum

Sorry I have not posted in a couple days. I thought it at nice to way to start the week since I ended last week with a picture of its neighbor to the north at night. I love the way the colored stones contrasts with the white of the museum.

This photo is the post 9/11 bollards that protect the archgrounds leading to the Old Cathedral in St. Louis. The Cathedral is interesting in that it was the only building that was spared from demolition when they cleared the land for what is now the Jefferson memorial (the archgrounds). I thought the image a nice companion to the shot I posted yesterday.

This is the pier on lake Michigan that is connected to the War Memorial in Milwaukee, WI. The memorial was designed by Eero Saarinen which is the connection I alluded to in yesterday's post. In my limited experience with Saarinen work in St. Louis and Milwaukee I am amazed at his ability to not just create buildings but places. The memorial is mostly forgotten as it is overshadowed by its neighbor designed by Calatrava. It is still a marvelous example of modern architecture and provides a wonderful view of its neighbor as well as the lake. Tomorrow we go back to St Louis.

As a tribute to my hometown, the iconic gateway arch in St. Louis, MO designed by Eero Saarinen. I love this shot because it gives a completely different look from the familiar head on view. Next I will post the connection to my adopted hometown Milwaukee, WI.

Another Photo Blog

Welcome to the first post of my photo blog. The image is of my dog Mojo for whom this site is named. I thought it was a good way to get off the ground.
