Should I Suspend My Photography to Go Help Fix the Bailout?

    Nah. John McCain is already on the case. He can handle it. I'd rather post a photo. This oasis of serenity in a collapsing, chaotic world was brought to you by Santiago Calatrava. His addition to the Milwaukee Art Museum is a serene exercise in form, bathed in light and magic

    Cybergabi, Holden Richards, shiphome, and 3 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      OMFG. What a sight. Excellent angle, and the reflections are killer.

      Great great work.

      Well, I don't know. It's very hard to do two things at once, especially if you are John McCain. Maybe you should go help the bailout, or the poor man won't be able to take a bathroom break...

      (Nice photo, BTW. ;-)

      That is a great photo! If I am ever up that way I will have to check it out in person.

      BTW, did you see Dave Letterman dogging McCain for not showing up? Hilarious:

      I love Calatrava's style and form. It is so clean and mathematical. Your photograph here is one the finest pieces of architectural photography that I have seen.

      Glad your not suspending your work. Now if we can just get you to debate.. ;)

      I wondered if this might've been an intentional juxtapositioning -- this right after the one of a vintage bar where you can sit immersed in the warmth of wood and other old-timey materials. Whereas, the Calatrava design is approximately the opposite. Different strokes for different folks, of course, but I tend to side with Tom Wolfe's critique of the Bauhaus movement, fad, whatever.

      You didn't suspend your photography. Because of that fateful decision our great nation has slipped closer to a depression. Shame on you!

      Interesting view of what seems such extraordinary building, with the light and reflections adding to the good feeling!
