A Place to Sit 2

The Glass Tower on Downer Avenue

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.

Crumbling Concrete Stairs

The Crumbling Concrete Stairs

“Crumbling between the fingers, under the feet, / Crumbling behind the eyes, / Their world gives way and dies / And something twangs and breaks at the end of the street.”
–Louis MacNeice
