Above Sister Bay

302. Steeple

302. Steeple

I saw this church steeple just above the tree line on the bluffs. It overlooks the small town of Sister Bay in Door County, Wisconsin.

In the Garden

445. Star

445. Star

Love the shape of this plant. If I were shooting it again, I’d be a bit more careful with the depth of field, and get the bottom leaf sharper, but I was mostly attracted to the splindly star shape in the center.

Fiddleheads

Sculpture in Olbrich Gardens

269. Sculpture

Fiddleheads (ferns) in the Olbrich Botanical Gardens. I’ve always wished real fiddleheads were planted around this sculpture. A fiddlehead amidst a lot of little, green fiddleheads.

Hesitation

401. Airport

401. Airport

Three seats across.
Nineteen rows.
One attendant.
Two pilots. Ah, at least the two pilots made it easier for me to board this plane.

I was expecting. . . bigger?

Jumping on the Pier

163. Kids These Days

On one of the first warm days of spring, these college kids had a great time jumping up and down at the end of the pier.

Up a Tree

358. Whats Inside?

358. What's Inside?

We visited Sinsinawa Mounds, the mother house for the Sinsinawa Dominicans, a religious order founded for women in 1847 and located in southwest Wisconsin. There are many buildings on the property that are more than a century old. I also saw this tiny structure, nearly hidden in a red maple. Though not as old as the buildings surrounding it, it looks like it’s been hanging in this Red Maple for a long time. I thought it was abandoned, but when I zoomed in on the photograph later, I could see bits of a nest.

So what’s inside? Old nesting material or new for this season’s baby birds?

Climbing Up the Wall

143. Public Art

143. Public Art

This office building in Madison has a relief sculpture of climbers on it’s facade. I always wonder if it’s representative of climbing the corporate ladder or climbing up the side of a wilderness mountain.
