Monumental Head of Balzac, by Auguste Rodin. Love that title. It is what it is.

Another view of the Calatrava from the south side. Soon the field of dwarf flowering crabs in the foreground will be blooming like mad.

Cambridge Commons is a residence hall for the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee located about a mile and a half south of the campus. Visiting today I was impressed with the students’ creative use of chalkboard space.  The Milwaukee skyline drawing is particularly nice.  I guess the Miley Cyrus drawing is true to life as well. ;P (that emoticon is a Miley, by the way …)
