Milwaukee Grayscale

IMG_0624[1]

I noticed this bird atop a light pole as I left campus tonight. Downtown Milwaukee has been partially shrouded by mist/fog today, most likely caused by the difference between air and Lake Michigan temperatures.  Away from the lake it was warm and sunny.

Below is City Hall, the bell tower and flag vanishing into the mist. On days like this, the top two-thirds of skyscrapers are swallowed by fog.  It’s very strange to be high up in one of these buildings and look out at nothing but gray fog pressing against the windows. Kind of  claustrophobic.
