    Doesn’t this gorgeous full moon look like something filmmaker Tim Burton might order up?  Actually, this is last month’s full moon (December 2012).  I had completely forgotten I’d photographed it until today, when I was working with some other pictures from … Continue reading

  • I just discovered a terrific Twitter hashtag: #iphoneography.  (There are also parallel hashtags #iphonegraphy and #iphonography.)

  • Really liked the intersecting lines and distorted angles of the condensation trail, power lines, and downtown buildings.  So I had to take a photo :)  Just finished teaching and am ready to call it a day.  Happy Tuesday evening!

  • 05/29/13--07:02: Slight chance of sunshine
  • Foggy morning in Milwaukee.  You can barely make out the sun peeking over the corner of the building at center, a circle of light only a shade brighter than the surrounding mist.  This is a color photo, by the way.  No … Continue reading

    I couldn’t resist snapping this photo with my iPhone just before 5:00 p.m. this afternoon in the Grohmann Museum on the campus of Milwaukee School of Engineering.  As I approached the atrium’s spiral staircase on the way from my office … Continue reading

    These  giant (9-foot) statues line the Grohmann Museum’s rooftop sculpture garden. As I was walking into my building this morning, I saw this reflection in the windows of the office building across the street.  When I saw the statues’ silhouettes in … Continue reading

  • The other day when I posted the “rainbow” light slanting through my office’s Venetian blinds, I mentioned that usually the light coming through is white and casts interesting shadows. Here’s an example of what I mean. I take a lot of … Continue reading

  • I stopped in this morning to see the Grohmann Museum’s new exhibit. Although it opened May 27, I’ve only been in the building since then during hours when the gallery is closed. Last week was finals, and between holing up to grade … Continue reading

    While waiting for the elevator in my building, I decided to check my texts. Apparently the last app I’d used was my camera, because it was still active when I opened things up. The image that flashed onscreen before being replaced … Continue reading
