Feb 14 – Walkie Talkie
For several years, the presenter has been taking photographs of everything and anything of interest that he sees in his walks from his home at St. John’s on the Lake to the Milwaukee Art Museum, the Lake Park lighthouse and the length of Brady Street and its side streets. Of course, there are the obvious things of interest, but only by walking can you find the numerous hidden treasures of just about any neighborhood. Interesting, intriguing, charming, beautiful and mysterious are some of the adjectives that describe what you will see in this presentation. Presenter: Tony Busalacchi
