I went on another photo walk with Ester a couple weekends ago before we met up with her husband and my boyfriend for supper. We chose to go to the old Pabst Brewery area in Milwaukee. I was here almost two years ago with my cousins, walking around and taking pictures. So much has changed since then! Buildings are going up left and right and it doesn't feel so abandoned anymore.
I admit though - I kind of miss the abandoned feel of this area. Although the area is starting to look new and fresh, it almost seems to be taking away from dust, dirt, and isolation of what was just there two years ago.
At least we got to capture what is still there. Not sure what another two years will bring to this area…
PS – Once again it’s fun to see how Ester and I have pictures of the same thing but different takes on it!
Saturday morning I traveled into MKE to meet a fellow photographer. I have been following Ester's photos / blog for a little while now so it was good to finally meet her. We first met up at Alterra in the Third Ward where we talked and then did a little photo walk in the area.
I can be nervous meeting new people, but Ester was so nice and I feel like we were constantly saying "I know, me too!" in response to each others comments.
I'm glad I found a local photographer who I can talk nerdy photography talk with.
As I finish this up, I realize Ester has beat me to posting. Remember to go check out her site and take a look at her views of the Third Ward from Saturday. It's neat to see our different takes on the same area and some of the same subjects!
