The Barrier

The Barrier

“I’m woven in a fantasy,
I can’t believe the things I see
The path that I have chosen now has led me to a wall…
…It rises now before me,
A dark and silent barrier between,
All I am, and all that I would ever want to be”
–from “The Wall” by Kerry Livgren and Steve Walsh

“Inspiration is highly overrated. If you sit around and wait for the clouds to part, it’s not liable to ever happen. More often than not, work is salvation.”

A Place to Sit 2

“The human body has two ends on it: one to create with and one to sit on. Sometimes people get their ends reversed. When this happens they need a kick in the seat of the pants.”
–Theodore Roosevelt

The Glass Tower on Downer Avenue

This concrete and glass “tower” sits on the corner of Downer Avenue and Bellview Place on the East Side of Milwaukee.  I’ve tried shooting this many times and have never really captured the shot I wanted.
