Bradford Beach Bottlecaps

I found this to be an interesting picture of the sidewalk ramp at Bradford Beach, it kind of reminded me of bottle caps.  It is stainless steel inlaid in the concrete and in some places the "bottle caps are worn".

Robot Responsible For Flood Spotted on Nearby Curb

I found the Robot responsible for the recent rain and flooding on a nearby curb.  He was washed up in this pile of garbage on the curb.  All should be well now?

Tazza Pizzeria Three Wheeler

Saw this one today a three wheeled delivery vehicle, from Tazza Pizzeria.
The location on this says 5010 Vilet St., phone number (414)-777-PZZA

Looks like it came right out a Pink Panther movie, doesn't it?

It was so cute and thought it would be a nice picture for this site. Now I want to try their Pizza.

Milwaukee Wild Turkeys

Just the other day I took this picture of the Milwaukee River by where it crosses Green Bay Road. The river is beautiful here. It was getting near sundown. Interesting enough there were wild turkeys that were nesting in the tree across the river. This is in Milwaukee County.

The turkeys flew up into the trees because they rely on their eyesight rather than hearing for survival. And their eyesight isn’t as good at night to see approaching predators. Their hearing is less developed to hear them coming, so it is safest for them to sleep in trees.

PS There should be a boat ramp at Green Bay Road where it crosses the river on the south side of Green Bay Road. If you would like to lobby the DNR for one, you will see me put my boat out there and fish for Musky because I sense them there.

The Coats of the Missisng People

The Coats with the Missing People

On a late night photography excursion I passed this fence with these overcoats hanging on it. It was a cold day. I believe this was East Highland Street at cross section of about 16st in Milwaukee; there was place of worship across the street. It was dark outside and I still don’t know what they were doing there. I did not have the cajones that night to start knocking on doors but I almost did- to find out where the missing people were.

A Matter of Perspective

A matter of perspective. Which one of these pictures is beautiful and which one is ugly. Be honest one is beautiful and one is ugly. One definitely does not have my blessing :) And the other one "looks" like I could have taken it in a more rural and less polluted location.

These are pictures of the little creek between Schlotzsky’s Deli and American TV and Appliance; it is about 68th St. and Brown Deer Rd. in Milwaukee. The deli sandwich with mayo took awhile to digest.

I yelled at two gentlemen washing a car behind their business concerning one of them. “Who is responsible for this?” There was no answer.

About the matter of perspective, I was standing in the same spot when I took both of these pictures.

Sluggoe 05 02 2010

Sluggoe opens door! Sluggoe (that must be his name) looked at me twice as I was parked on the east side of Milwaukee waiting for a business to open. I had got there to early in the morning. Sluggoe looked at me twice to see if I was a good guy, and then reached out and opened the door to his home and walked in.
