Since the day i left Milwaukee...............

I was looking thro' my old collection, when I chanced upon these, shot in one of the most beautiful li'l downtowns I have seen on the east coast: Milwaukee. It was the first snow of the season and with festive season already on, the town had this charming feel about it. I guess, i am smitten by the place coz of the good time I had there during last Thanksgiving. I met a dear childhood friend in Chicago after eons, the road trip we had taken from Florida to Milwaukee had taken us to places never heard before and I had my first shot at roulette with winnings enuf to buy us pizzas and gas to Chicago!!! :) :) P.S. : This blog wasn't up and running then ...................explains the nostalgia, i guess. P.S. 1: They were all taken from a moving car , thats why the framing is all haywired!!!

Thanks for your comments on my blog. Saw your pelican pics...good job. You might want to try the continuous mode in your camera to get the perfect shot. Panning is also a nice idea. I would also suggest the use of a tripod and a polarizer. Use the latter to darken the water and reduce the reflections. But as we all know...more often than not you don't have time for all that :)
