David and Shelena, Part 2: MAM

Shelena is one of the coolest semi-related-to-me persons I know. And I'm pretty confident that I know most of my semi-related-to-me persons. Aside from teaching us alternative scarf-folding techniques, knowing everything about cars (she even shares the same favorite car with me), and visiting us during a cold week in autumn, she also brought a Canon Rebel SLR with her.

I made the mistake of buying a film SLR right before the digicam craze started. And I will regret that decision until I have a digital SLR of my very own. (sniff, sniff)

So thanks to Shelena for snapping a million awesome pictures of our trip on a camera with far better color imaging than my own feeble non-SLR camera.

Let's get the picture-sharing started with the Milwaukee Art Museum.

I've said it before, the Calatrava is the most beautiful part of Milwaukee.

This pic would have been better if some of us were on the right side, but the guard yelled at us. They're very cautious at the MAM about where you stand, what you touch, and the level of moisture contained in your breath. I think we'll bring our HazMat suits next time.

This is a fun little 3-way mirror sculpture that everyone who has ever been to the MAM has seen, but this is by far the best shot I've ever seen taken of it. Hooray for Shelena!

I forgot the name of the artist, but there's a small room on the 3rd floor with 3 sculptures (including the sculpture above) by the same artist. The entire room has a very serene and quiet feeling that exudes from her artwork. I could sit and think in that room all day long.

Yeah, we're silly. And Cyn has the Bangles on her mind.
