GALLERY : Lake Michigan from Our Place

In Milwaukee, where I live, our view of Lake Michigan is from our dining room, framed by three neighboring buildings: one to the left, one to the right, and one below. I look out at the lake every single day. Its characteristics can change sometimes several times in one day, along with the landscape, the sky, the light. It’s like a perpetually changing work of art.

GALLERY : Sidewalk Series

As a young girl, I was always told by my mother, “Stand up straight when you walk!” Staring at the ground, bent forward, looking as if I were in a hurry to get somewhere is a habit I’ve had all my life, and I’m trying to break myself of it as we speak. It has come in handy, however. After we got rid of one car and started walking most everywhere in downtown Milwaukee, where we live, I started finding all kinds of interesting things on the city sidewalks. So I decided to start taking pictures of them. Here’s some of what I’ve encountered.
