Traveling

I found out that it's worth it to get up at 2:00 am on a Saturday morning for a flight home. On the Sunday that I went to Madison, I left on a plane at 4-something in the afternoon. Both flights were packed. However, coming home on a 6:00 am flight, I had room to spare on both planes. Much more relaxing. And, even with the hour's time difference, I was still on the road home before 11:00 am.

Here are some pictures I took in Madison, WI. They're of Lake Mendota.

I realize this isn't the lake. But it is right on the lake. It's a dorm. I should have known this from all of the bicycles there.

I love the perspective on the photo with the path/road that curves to the left. That's very cool!

Nice photos Squirl-Bob!

*thinks that castle is identical ones to the inflatables you see at kid's birthday parties, only not as soft*

Mr. B, that castle is definitely not soft! But I was totally fascinated with it the time I went up there. Madison is a kick-ass town!

Do you know what the building is used for? Or any of the history of it?

Thanks, Susie. It's such a nice city.

Jim, I liked that one, too. Thanks!

Mr B, it's definitely not soft. :-)

Bucky, we would've had fun if you'd been able to come along.

Tweety, I did have fun. Well, after a full of classes anyway.

Eclectic, thanks! The weather was perfect.

Courtney, I don't know what it's for. Tomorrow night I might see someone from that town. I'll see if I can get that info.

You have such a great eye for photo's. I really enjoy them! It seems like people are born with it or they just are not. Nice job!

Kranki, you would love Madison. College towns are usually pretty cool.

Jeff, thank you. I appreciate that. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

Tweety, that is a bit of a hike. But the town is so cool!

tshsmom, it was beautiful. The sun shone every day that I was there.

Great shots, as usual, Squirl. I like the lake but I am most impressed by the shot of the dorm.

Thanks, Nick! I don't know if it was originally for dorms but it is a cool looking building.

What a great building for a dorm! It reminds me of a house that I saw on Lake Michigan in Evanston. Really cool.

I know you adjust the colors on your photos to bring out the blues more. It really works for these photos. It makes them really pretty. :-)

Danielle, that is a cool building. And what's cool about these pictures is that I didn't have to do much at all to adjust the colors. Some days the lighting is just perfect!
