    Nice photos, Cubercle - mind sharing (either to me personally at vansteen@decaturnet.org or to the forum) what kind of film you used, aperture and shutter speed, etc.?

    Its typical downtown Milwaukee after 8 pm

    BTW they are great pics. I may have to snag one for my desktop.

    That brings up a good question... is Milwaukee dead at night? Where are the vibrant, happening areas there - with bars, restaurants, clubs, etc? Have they been lost to the suburbs? Just curious since I've never been there.

    Water Street, north of State Street. The Trixie and Chad entertainment district

    Brady @ Farwell. Similar but more eclectic.

    Farwell @ North. Like Brady and Farwell.

    Walkers Point #1 (National @ 2nd St) The Chad & Chad, Trixie and Trixie district, with a great biker bar thrown right in the middle)

    Walkers Point #2 (National @ 5th) Goth, dance, great latino establishments....

    Tosa village, to some extent, 70th @ State.

    Thanks, Chet, I'm sitting here laughing that you put it in the context of Trixie and Chad. I'll have to check out Water St late this summer. Sadly, I've got to admit to being a bit of a Chad.

    Chet summed up the hot spots pretty well. I would add:

    3rd Ward (Water Street and Broadway, south of the Freeway)

    Jefferson & Wells (Pretty upscale)

    Riverwest -Center Street, between Humboldt and Holton. (Hippies, Hipsters, and Punk Rockers)

    i really don't know much about photography.
    i set the digicam on whatever flat surface i could find,
    set it to night shot for the long exposure or whatever,
    turned off the flash,
    lined everything up on the screen,
    pressed the button.
    repeat.

    repo man (or anybody),
    if you want a big version of any of these let me know.
    i have to shrink them considerably to post them here.

    Cool...

    It's funny. As I look at these photos, I hear a jazz sax being played somewhere in the distance...

    Maybe this belongs under a music thread, but...
    Pete Rock's last comment made me wonder something:

    I would argue that "popular music" (the music that dominated popular culture) reached its absolute qualitative peak during the big band/jazz era. Look at the sheer musicianship, the sense of style, the heart. Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, and the like are so far above the Paula Abduls, NSync's and generic dance pop that dominates Top 40 today. (although you could easily argue that rap is a dominant popular music form today, just for the sake of my argument. . .)

    Is one of the reasons for this maybe that jazz is a very urban, chaotic music that reflects cities during their urban high point. And that bland, safe R&B/Pop music, while borrowing from urban blues music, represents the safer, blander identity of suburbia?

    I admit I grew up in a suburb and live in a suburb, but. . .
