Missing the Madison Brass Works


October 24, 2018

In 2008 the Madison Brass Works building was not what many other people would call attractive. Well, you know the rest. I spent considerable time entranced by this window that July. Alas, revisiting the building will not allow my continued enjoyment, at least of this window. This is how the building looks now.

 Here are details of some of the glass blocks:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


My Favorite Drainpipe in Wisconsin


October 4, 2018

My camera has visited this drainpipe and environs for three years running. They haven’t changed much from last year (see the fifth photograph down) except for the displacement of a few bricks and the loss of more white paint. And except for the subsequently missing graffiti sticker (see the sixth and seventh photos down), they didn’t look much different in 2016 either. Well, there’s always next year.

Sweet-Potato-Orange Paint on Two Boards in Madison


September 26, 2017

Titling posts is something I do with immense difficulty. That’s why so many of my posts end in a number; that way I’m able to think of one title and attach it to many posts. But this photograph is the only one I have from my recent time in Madison that shows a fence around a construction area, or any fence, or any boards, or anything colored orange besides the brick wall, which was already in a different category. I won’t tell you how long it took to come up with the title for this post, pitiful as it is. The help I received from Google was minimal. I did find a site that gave many names for the color orange, though, including the one that wound up in the title for this post. Here they are:

Apricot orange, burnt orange, butternut orange, calypso orange, candlelight orange, cantaloupe orange, caramelized orange, carrot orange, cayenne orange, cheddar orange, cheese-cracker orange, Chinese-lantern orange, cider orange, citrus orange, clementine orange, coral orange, crayon orange, curry orange, fire orange, flame orange, goldfish orange, mac-and-cheese orange, mango-tango orange, mandarin orange, marigold orange, marmalade orange, monarch orange, nacho orange, nasturtium orange, naval orange, papaya orange, peach orange, peach-butter orange, peach-sorbet orange, popsicle orange, pumpkin orange, safety-vest orange, salamander orange, salmon orange, sherbet orange, shrimp orange, starfish orange, sunset orange, sweet-potato orange, tangelo orange, tangerine orange, terra cotta, tiger orange, traffic orange, yam orange

I’m open (very) to suggestions for what I could have titled this post. 🙂
