Tree Climbing

Just a shadow that caught my eye around noon today.

I like how the tree seems to be growing out of the doorway and spreading up the wall. I’ve seen whimsical fairy/gnome doorways in trees before . . .

But this was my first tree in a doorway! 🙂

This is the vestige of what was once a side door into the Val. Blatz Brewing Company’s Bottle House. Now it’s an emergency exit for the Campus Center at Milwaukee School of Engineering. More importantly, it’s also a handy little alcove to stand in on a winter day and be shielded from biting wind while waiting for the light at Broadway and State to change 🙂
