Not Quite as Secret


The last underground poster, found above ground of course, seemed to be for a more obscure venue.  Makes sense though.  I don’t know how many venues can stay obscure with no cover and cheap booze.

Bees and Butterflies


Correctly, bee and butterfly.  The flowers were blooming, and the pretty insects were out on the Root River Parkway.  I am slowly working my way through all of Milwaukee’s parkways.  They are not to be discounted.  The acreage set aside to enjoy by bike is surprising.  If we could get that culture for commuting, we could be a biking city!  Woo!

Ads that look like graffiti.  Except that someone painted over the PBR part of the ad.  What is strange is that they wrote “Censored by the city of Milwaukee”, and then proceeded to paint in the full texture of the can where the PBR part was.  And, they only painted it on two of the three.  All very strange.

The Northern Hood


Man, maybe we live on the wrong side of the ‘tracks’?  Our side is all broken cars and empty buildings.  The north side is brew pubs and visitors.  Blast.

It Gets Dark


Regardless if you catch the sunset or not.  If you are walking at dusk, it gets dark.


Then pretty soon you are pushing up the ISO and not getting everything in focus.


Then you go wide.  Which was sorta cool.  I like the elephant. 


Bella’s has good pastry.  I haven’t been there in a while, but I remember it being very pleasant.

Port Washington


Not that I can do it justice in a ten minute walk.  Still, I got the highlights.


Are churches supposed to be ominous.


Nothing says fine meat quite like the name Bernie.


Port Washington wasn’t exactly lacking in pubs.

Sometimes, jackassery takes a back seat to no man, women, or even the disabled.

I did check the front, no handicapped placard.

Typed on a tiny touchscreen keyboard,


Pure Evil


Pure joy.  When they come together it is something special.

Our Neighborhood



I think it is an interesting post industrial street.


I’m not sure those do much good facing up.   I’d have to ask a pilot.


Gay pride railing is proud of being gay.  



Top secret clubs do the area.  I’ve never heard of anyone going to them, but every once in a while I spot the signs.

Thistles and Tallgrass


We find them plenty pretty.


They also seem to have balance.  Beauty and danger.  Personally, roses are a little safe for my taste.  Nuisance thorns have nothing on a field of thistles.


Sideways Kat!


Going wide for that wonderful blue spring sky.


I cannot imagine how overgrown the place is now.


I thought this was lead plant, but it bloomed to early.  Just another mystery flower.

Vernon Marsh


From the parking lot, we could see well maintained trails were of the utmost importance.


Water lilies abounded, blue and beautiful.


The grass was tall, and sadly the Sandpiper Cranes were not to be found. 


Eventually it got to deep.  Fortunately, Kat was to be found.


Hey little guy!


Good to see the dragonflies out and about.  Still no butterflies, but I’ll take what I can get.

We Have Botanical Gardens!!

My god.  Why hadn’t anyone told me.  Anyway, here are 25 awesome flowers, one weird sculpture, and a little mystery; who’s taller, Kat or ferns?
