Taking in March Madness

Took this photo as I was leaving my evening film studies class last night. Quite a difference from leaving class last week, when it was dark and I took the the picture of the lit-up cathedral.

There was lots going on in the street below for these birds to check out last night. For whatever reason, NCAA Tournament games are happening in Milwaukee today and Saturday. Lots of  pedestrians last night and this morning, lots of traffic with vehicles driven by people who pretty obviously don’t quite know their way around downtown.

No game tomorrow, but it’s St. Patrick’s Day. Water Street will be hopping all day long. These birds snagged a great spot for catching all the action.

    • It should be in the post itself (on my page) if it’s nit in your WP Reader. I wrote this up on my phone, and I always save the photo for the last thing I add because for some reason it always screws things up if I do it first on my phone. But this time it was so late in the evening and I was so tired that I forgot to add the picture! And then immediately had to edit and republish. Sigh. It’s the photo of the two gulls sitting on top of the Walter Schroeder Library, with the First Wisconsin FIRSTAR US Bank in the background.

    It’s there on this post and is excellent! I’m always so impressed that you get such great pictures on your phone. Very architectural, this one.
