A gloomy, rainy day in Milwaukee. But I’ll take it—way better than 10 inches of snow or below zero temperatures! Snapped this picture on my way from the CC to the Grohmann this morning (on MSOE’s campus downtown). Rain was just starting to pick up again, and I liked the contrast here between the lines of the office building reflected in this puddle and the spreading rings on the water’s surface where individual drops splashed.
Yeah, I know. This is just an iPhone pic of a puddle. But I like the ghostly apparition of the building rising up from the depths (of, like, two inches max 🙂 ). You can also see the office lights floating in the blackness of each floor’s ceiling—which you kind of have to think about, as the puddle reflects a mirror image and everything is upside down. Plus, the pebbled texture of the sidewalk—unnoticeable when dry—looks like a lake bed or riverbank.
So not a beautiful photograph, but maybe an interesting one to look at.
