Most of us who grew up in Milwaukee – or have raised or are raising kids here – have a photo taken on the zoo train. A few years ago, I held a contest / created a gallery of train photos to further illustrate the prominence of these photos.
Recently, via social media, I noticed another commonly-captured spot in Milwaukee: The Calatrava addition at the Milwaukee Art Museum. I have taken many there myself. It's almost impossible to stand in the light-filled, white-beamed space without snapping a shot or two.
Runners-up for popular Milwaukee places to shoot a photo include atop the La Perla mechanical pepper, the Lake Park lions and, of course, standing next to the Bronze Fonz, most likely with thumbs up. (Warning: if you post a photo of yourself doing anything lewd to / with Fonzie, I'm unfriending you.)
