I took a "day trip" to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, a city I love to visit but hadn't been there in about 3 years. One reason for the trip was to photograph the new Northwestern Mutual tower downtown, and to get new skyline photos with the building. Another reason was to visit the Milwaukee County Zoo...one of the best I've been to because the animals are easy to see and photograph. But the main reason was to photograph 21 new sculptures during the "2nd Annual Sculpture Milwaukee"...an urban outdoor sculpture garden spread out blocks along Wisconsin Avenue.
During this trip, I did something I had never done before. I have been to Milwaukee many times and photographed the fabulous Milwaukee Art Museum on the Lakefront. What I have never done was photograph the inside, but something I was really looking forward to. Once inside, I marveled at how spectacular things looked. I was like a kid in a candy store...definitely in my element. Another highlight was seeing the museum wings close and open at 12 noon. Architect Santiago Calatrava did an outstanding job on this gem of a building. If you're ever in Milwaukee, make sure you give this one a visit!
