Coffee House

Coffee Tum Bird House.jpgSome kind person is building bird houses throughout Milwaukee. I found this particularly creative one-for caffeinated birds-In the East Side. It was covered in rain drops-hinting at its purpose-and I angled the phone camera to make sure that human habitations would give it a sense of place and show it off as just another apartment!

Crazy Concrete Dog

I moved in close to crop this dog statue ina way that had him looming out of the top right of the frame  – tight at the top (even losing some of his head) and extra generous at the bottom. I tried to exaggerate the chaos and disorder of the scene by keeping all of the sight lines slightly skee-whiff. Just a little disorienting. By boosting contrast and saturation the winter leaves transformed themselves into fall colours, adding a time dislocation.
