Bucky, Abe Lincoln, and…Circus Clowns? Oh My!

Posted on May 23, 2011


Hi Everyone!   

 This post definitely caps off an eventful weekend – one full of tons of walking, excellent food, great photos, and even better nostalgia.  This weekend I took a trip to Madison, as I do every year, and the city never ceases to amaze me.  While the campus keeps changing, I can’t help but feel like part of it will always remain the same.  I finally, after 5 years, got my chance to sit on Abe Lincoln’s lap (I have the injuries to prove it) – it was quite the adventure.  I also had a chance to return to some of my favorite places – the lake front, Sun Room Cafe, Chautara, Olbrich Gardens, among others.  I had the pleasure of exploring new places as well.  This year I traveled up to Baraboo to visit the Circus World Museum.  Fascinated by both the circus and museums alike, this proved to be a very satisfying trip.                      

 Throughout my weekend I had the opportunity to take hundreds of photos. As most photographers will attest, you may take 200 photos and end up with 20 that you like.  With that said, I was able to capture some priceless images.  I have put up a small sampling of my favorites in this post.  I will add the rest to a gallery on my website soon.
Last year I learned a valuable lesson about taking photos at dusk – a tripod is a must.  This year I brought a small tripod that fit in my bag and am very pleased with the end result.  My lake front terrace photo above is a testament to that.

I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed my weekend.  On Wisconsin!
