Ten Wonderful Wisconsin Oddities

Confused Arrows ELEVA

The title says it rather clearly, these are ten shots of some of the wonderful oddities I’ve encountered in my travels around Wisconsin making this documentary (that is now finished, working on release screenings and dates for this fall).  There’s a little note below each photo to let you know a bit about it. * … Continue reading

Outside House On The Rock

HOTR Inn Dodgeville

I shot these quite some time ago, but just found them.  While the interior tour of House On The Rock is used in the documentary (to humorous and a bit eery effect), only a smidgen of the exterior, also an awesome place to visit, is used.  That place just keeps going and going.  Enjoy, and … Continue reading

Wisconsin Cheese Cow Lexxy’s Day Trip To Ashland

Lexxy ASHLAND 05

My travel sidekick Lexxy (the blow up cow to promote Wisconsin Cheese), always seemed to get the best view of everything.  Ok, just having a little fun with her.  Ashland was definitely my kind of town, and South Shore Brewing my kind of place to grab a great Wisconsin Beer.  Another neat thing are the … Continue reading

The Morgue Haunted House

MORGUE Oneida 05

I know it’s not Holloween, but stumbling upon some fun pictures while driving back roads near DePere, I came across an old school house renamed The Morgue, and took several photos of it.  Interestingly enough, there was also a church right next to it.  After finding the pictures, I looked up what it might be … Continue reading

Wisconsin Weather Gone Wild

Minus 27 BRRR

While I am off in Southern California editing on a breezy 73 degree day, my family was stuck in the minus 27 degree weather in the Rice Lake area (see top photo below).  That’s where I would be if there right now, and that’s also a one hundred degree difference.  Futher, it was a change … Continue reading

Ella’s Deli & Ice Cream Parlor – Past, Present & Fantasy

Ella's Deli Brewers

I had the pleasure of dining with our dear friend Steve “The Owner” Tate at Ella’s Deli several months ago and it was quite the pleasing experience for a number of reasons, particular the great deli food and ice cream, but also the decor.  So many things from the past and present on display, yet … Continue reading

An Upside Down White House In Wisconsin Dells

White House Wisconsin Dells

The upside down alien attacked White House in Wisconsin Dells looks even more creepy when you shoot it at night when no one is around (see video).  It’s like it really happened, and with Halloween upon us, it has all the luster of a haunted house.  Creepy and cool all the same. * * * … Continue reading

Pumpkins Are Fun In The Fall

Pumpkin Patch Rice Lake

It’s fall, so that means pumpkins.  Here’s a killer pumpkin patch and maze just outside of Rice Lake.  Espcecially neat is the pumpkin tree that had to be at least sixty feet high. * * * * * *

Where Antiques & Cheese Come Together

Tim & Tom 01

Tim and Tom’s Cheese shop is located just outside of Kenosha, right off the freeway a few miles away from Mars Cheese Castle, but it’s a world of difference from the Castle filled with cheese because it also offers up an awesome variety of antiques and unique items for sale.  Lots of collectables, old liscense … Continue reading

The Hideout: Al Capone’s Northwoods Retreat Photos

Capone_hideout_04

Several years ago I had a chance to got to Al Capone’s Northwoods Retreat with my brother and mother (before it closed down) and was able to get some photos of the place.  It’s interesting to know that so much of the Chicago gang activity of the 1920’s had a sort of silent existence in … Continue reading

Seymour Wisconsin: The Original Home Of The Hamburger

Welcome To Seymour

In case you didn’t know it, the hamburger originated in Wisconsin and is now, much like the Green Bay Packers are to football, one of the most famous food items in the world.  We’ll be covering that fact in the documentary.  In the meantime, the below statement is the official Wisconsin state legislation statement declaring … Continue reading

Lexxy Cow At The Wisconsin Capital Building

Lexxy Capital 04

Last fall after we had the opportunity to interview Mayor Soglin of Madison for the documentary, our traveling companion mascot Lexxy decided she must have her picture taken at the state capital building, so that’s exactly what we did.  She also had to posh it up in our Avis Budget rental for the sake of … Continue reading
