This week, Amy has asked us to Frame the Shot for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge. Occasionally, when I’m taking pictures I make a conscious effort to compose a framed shot. Sometimes it happens without me even realizing it. The first two images were captured earlier this year at the Chicago Botanic Garden. The next two were taken at the Milwaukee Art Museum. And the last two in downtown Chicago.
After dabbling in architecture for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge, I decided to look up for my 3rd entry in Becky’s Spiky Squares photo challenge. Here are a few spikes and spires from Chicago, Milwaukee, Asheville, Bartlett, Marion, Oak Brook and Green Bay.
My second entry for Becky’s June Squares is the distinctive roof at the Milwaukee Art Museum in Wisconsin.

This week, Cee is asking us to look through a window for her Black & White Photo Challenge. The following pictures were taken on our recent visit to Milwaukee, the first two at the Milwuakee Art Museum.
Windows seemed to be the prevailing theme on this trip as evidenced by these two images captured at The Domes in Mitchell Park.

This week Cee has us climbing up on the roof for her Fun Foto Challenge. This puts me in mind of the time we lived in a house with a flat roof and would sit listening to it creak as the snow piled up on it during the winter months. No flat roofs in this collection except for the first one at Arlington Park racetrack in Arlington Heights. I would hate to have to get up there and shovel snow off of this one.

Cee has us looking through a window for this week’s Black & White Photo Challenge. Whether looking in or looking out, I guess it doesn’t matter. There’s something to be seen either way.
Looking out through the windows of the Milwaukee Art Museum onto Lake Michigan.
Looking in through the windows of the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, Wisconsin.
Looking out through the windows of the Natural History Museum at the Wasatch Mountains in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Looking in through the windows of the same building you would think you’d see something different but because of their reflective surface you get a similar view of the Wasatch Mountains.

The Weekly Photo Challenge from the folks on The Daily Post at http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/10/11/photo-challenge-infinite/ is Infinite.
Although these are probably not the ideal subjects for this particular challenge, I feel that I’ve come as close as I can with the material available. It’s times like this that I wish I’d taken more pictures when I had the opportunity and maybe looked at things from a slightly different angle. I realize now that the possibilities with photography are infinite. The picture above was taken outside the Milwaukee Art Museum.
An old-time railway carriage at, I believe, the Chicago History Museum, although I had to go rather deep into the archives to find this one so I can’t be absolutely certain.
The Infinity Room at the House on the Rock in Wisconsin.
An infinite number of ‘hundreds & thousands’ especially when you accidentally spill them all over the floor.
And finally, the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Chicago, seemingly reaching into infinity.
