Yesterday I went to Milwaukee together with Donna and her sister. The trip was organized by Donna and I liked the idea, especially because this meant that I would finally see a larger american city.

After arriving we first visited the Milwaukee Art Museum with its beautiful sailboat-like architecture. I really liked that place and can only recommend going there. BTW: You dont even have to pay admission if you only want to see the architecture.

After leaving the museum, we split up and I started discovering the city on my own. I wandered around the street, through small alleys and dark corners.
Even though the sun was not present for most of the time and the lighting was therefore rather dull, I liked the gritty feeling this city has to it, without looking decayed. I especially enjoyed seeing all the structures, patched up walls and other signs of time.

What I found surprising was that even though it was a saturday afternoon, almost no people were on the street. So, at least from my impression the city is not really a perfect place for street photography.

I think I will definitely try to come back to Milwaukee before leaving, hopefully on a sunnier day where hopefully the lighting inside these alleys is more interesting and probably there are even more people on the street then.
