If you have lived in Milwaukee your entire life or even for a long stretch of time, it would be difficult, if not impossible, to avoid having your photo taken â€“ or taking someone elseâ€™s photo â€“ in one of these classic locales.
Personally, I'm guilty of posing on or near all of these places.
Zoo train: A few years ago, OnMilwaukee.com held a contest andÂ created a gallery of zoo train photos. Many Milwaukeeans not only had pictures of themselves on the train, but of their kids, as well. Aw. Â
Bronze Fonz: I have seen a few inappropriate, late-night Bronze Fonz shots on Facebook, but Iâ€™m not (only) talking about those. The Fonz statue is a shutterbug magnet, day or night. Smile and say, "Tuscadero!"
Big guitar at Summerfest: This photo hot spot is new to the local photo game since the large sculpture has only been on the grounds for a few years, but it quickly became a summertime profile pic fave. Prior to that, photos on the Sky Glider or, back in the day, in front of the fountain (now the splash pad) were quite plentiful.
Waterfall at The Domes: Hey, we donâ€™t have many waterfalls in these parts so we gotta document 'em when we can. I couldnâ€™t resist myself recently.Â
La Perla pepper: Even though it may not be the most flattering photo, if you ride the pepper, someone is going to capture you doing it. And you really must ride the pepper once in your life. It is, after all, a rite of passage for uber Milwaukeeness.Â
Where else do we love to photograph ourselves, Milwaukee?
