SkyWatch Friday: Sunset Over Lambeau

This view was taken from the ramp at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin while walking up to our seats at the Packers-Bears football game on September 13, 2012. (The Packers won, 23-10! Yay!)

Dinner Plates

These giant shelf mushrooms were growing on the base of a decaying tree up on the Ryan Road trails.

"...and there is your dagger!"

Sportscaster Wayne Larrivee, voice of the Green Bay Packers radio network, popularized the phrase “And there is your dagger!” — and uses it whenever the Packers make the defining play that puts the game away as a sure win. As Wayne says: we all stood up and cheered the “Daggers” through last season and during the Super Bowl — and I'm sure we'll have even more this year!

The phrase has become so popular in these parts that he even has a line of merchandise featuring it, with the Make-A-Wish Foundation® as a beneficiary. The shirt above was on sale at a vendor booth on the way into Lambeau Field in Green Bay right before the Packers-Bears game.

Lambeau Field

We were at the Packers-Bears game on Thursday night up in Green Bay.  This is one of the new giant HD scoreboards. There's one at each end of the field. (This one was at the far end from where we were seated; the clarity is fabulous.) The Pack won, 23-10!

I added a few sunflowers from our garden to brighten up the small carnation bouquet from the grocery store. Happy September! :-)

Dancing with Toulouse

The lobby posters announcing the show "Posters of Paris" at the Milwaukee Art Museum are just as exciting as the vintage ones on display.

Window Wall

Above is the large glass wall separating the "Posters of Paris" exhibition from the rest of the Milwaukee Art Museum lobby. The posters included fabulous full size original lithographs by well known artists of the late 19th century, such as Toulouse Lautrec, Jules Cheret, Jean de Paleologue (also known as 'Pal'), and others. Cameras were not allowed into the exhibit, but photos were allowed in the lobby.

Milwaukee Architecture

This view is looking northwest from the outside of the Milwaukee Art Museum over Lincoln Memorial Drive.  Not sure exactly what that large white building is, but I think it may be one of the cities' older posh apartment buildings. In the foreground you can see a kiosk with advertisements for the current museum show, "Posters of Paris."  I will show a few more images over the next day or two from our little jaunt downtown.

September Theme Day: People Watching

What better place to watch a crowd than at the Milwaukee Art Museum? We drove down to review their current "Posters of Paris" exhibit last weekend.  This image shows the crowd milling about in the atrium of the gorgeous Calatrava wing which overlooks Lake Michigan.
