I took this photo of the Sixth Street Viaduct over Milwaukee’s Menomonee Valley while waiting to cross the street after dropping my younger daughter off at the train station this morning. She caught the 8:05 Amtrak Hiawatha for a field trip with her art history classmates to the Art Institute of Chicago and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. What a sweetheart—and so looking forward to this experience! She even made a list of all the artworks she wants to see so she won’t miss out on anything.
But going back to my picture, I love that the iPhone camera lens has a zoom feature. The above close-up shot of the viaduct makes a cool photograph, while the image below taken with the “shorter” lens is kind of “meh.”
The Bublr Bikes are a relatively new addition to the Milwaukee scene. There are bike stations like this scattered around Downtown, the Lakefront, and the Lower East Side, which makes it easy to get on a bike in one place, ride it to your destination, and then just leave it there instead of needing to return it to the original location.
