Milwaukee Spring Night Photos

Emily Fire La Perla

I took some photos during a Milwaukee Spring evening out. Locations include La Perla (Mexican Restaurant), Lake Shore Park, and Downtown.

I just brought out a light/small/inexpensive lens, “the nifty fifty,” Canon’s EF 50mm f/1.8 lens on my Canon 5Dmk3. Photos were processed in Lightroom and about a third also had some work done in Photoshop as well. To see all 17 photos in the gallery click here.

Milwaukee Spring Night Photos AT LA PERLA FOR DINNER AND DRINKS:
Genius direction, “Um, look at the fire.” On La Perla’s patio.

­čÖé Also on the patio.

Awww, I think they like each other. On the other side of the room, a guy was humping a girl on the motorized kid ride.

I had some sweet red-light timing on this.

Milwaukee Art Museum seen through the Lake Shore bridge. This is genius because they both have pokey things.

The girls consider jumping off the Lake Shore Bridge.

I also call this picture “Art Sauce,” but the lighting was at least done in camera. Makes me feel a little better.

A relaxing night.

Lake Shore… Marina? Whatever you call that protected water area.
Also, genius compositing by me.

These sissy ducks were totally scared of me and my evil camera.

If you could turn the camera to your left a little, you would see some mischevious kids.

This is where I park my imaginary boat.

DOWNTOWN at golden-hour before going to dinner:
The museum and the plant are competing to see who can spread their wings better. It’s a close call.

People love to hate this sculpture. But see how much fun it is?

Gomez Bobblehead Day Photos

Below are photos I took at Miller Park during Carlos Gomez Bobblehead Day (April 27, 2014 — his jersey is #27, see what they did there?).
Sat in section 328. Braun and Segura were on timeout for dugout shenanigans I believe. Brewers lost the game 4-0 to the Cubbies, but it was a great time.

So I knew I wanted to get a shot with the banner M lined up over the Miller Park M and the lightpole over the I (super genius, I know), but it was tough to sneak in for a shot without getting run over.

So I didn’t line the shot up as perfect as I wanted. And the guy in the lower right kept gawking at me like a crazy person.

But I feel like I won that battle when I put my sig over him.


This is me cautiously leaning over the railing like a sissy.

This cup isn’t ironic at all.

Oh, so the Cubs think they can play small ball and beat us?
Well, apparently they can.

Bobblehead Gomez with some great defense.

Shot of the park from my seat. Over 45,000 in attendance for the Sunday day game.

Everyone loves the Klements races! And this time it was a relay!

Another super-genius idea I had: get Gomez Bobblehead in foreground while he’s at bat.
