Springfield, Illinois, is a relatively small town with lots of history. It's main claim to fame, of course, is that Abraham Lincoln lived and practiced law in Springfield from 1837 until he became president in 1861.
The picture above is of the old state capitol, which was the capitol building in use when Lincoln was there. Right across the street is the excellent Lincoln Museum and Presidential Library.

This is a recent view of the downtown Milwaukee skyline from Lakeshore State Park on the lake front. The Milwaukee skyline is changing fast, with lots of new buildings going up.

A few weeks ago I went to Milwaukee for a conference and got to spend time with family. As it turned out it was the last nice weather of the the fall. Here is a nice view of the Milwaukee Pier Light Head at outlet of the Milwaukee River.
