All the colors of the rainbow

The Reuss Federal Plaza (that horizontal sliver of cobalt blue at the center) kind of throws it in that direction anyway. Taken Thursday morning on my Starbucks run 🙂

Oh, gee, I was just checking to make sure I spelled Henry Reuss’s name correctly, and I discovered that the building was sold this past January. Article about the transaction is here. Well, no matter what it’s called in the future, I’m sure I’ll be 95 years old and still referring to it as it was originally known. Just like all the other downtown buildings that are no longer named what I call them!

    • Thank you! After a very rainy start to autumn, we’re finally experiencing some really pretty fall weather here in Milwaukee. Temps in the fifties, plenty of sunshine, and lots of colorful leaves.

    WOW! I didn’t know the Federal bldg was sold. Two decades ago I exhibited some of my art there. Your photo is really nifty. Three fourths of your photo has the effect of a watercolor painting.

    I didn’t know that about the Reuss building either. Sounds like Social Security and the Federal offices have moved out of there. I wonder where one goes to visit them now? Thanks for the discovery!
