[This book from Scott Kelby]() is great for beginners and really helped me a lot when I first started, it skips all the technical talk and goes straight to how to get those great shots.

Not sure what is out there now but I know that when I started learning by myself almost all of the books out there where either too technical or complete garbage as a learning tool, lots of books out there that are more like the authors personal portfolio and this is the one that actually taught me in an easy fun way.

There are 3 books on this series but I don't really recommend the other two unless you really like the book and like the author style because they are more like an expansion of the first book and not as good bang for your buck.

My sister is easily fooled by stuff like this, so when I took her to Shakers, she wanted a reading. I got to sit in and listen. The "psychic" said that we were very lucky to find each other and that we make a great couple and will be very happy together. We never told her that we were brother & sister, and tried pretty hard to not laugh out loud. It was a good time, but please, do yourself a favor and read this book:

Oh, like handbill sizes! That's a great idea! Thank you!

Martha Dreams of Dinosaurs is a kids book, for sure. And it's wonderful. I bought a copy for my 3-year-old-daughter and she loves it.

This Road Must Go Somewhere (And Other Things I Told Myself) is not a kids book. It's a book about suicide and grief. It's good, but it's raw. $8 from every $10 book goes directly to NAMI.

Buy My Book: Not Because You Should, But Because I'd Like Some Money is stupid and fun, but only appropriate for anyone old enough to buy it with a credit card.

Not Pictured on the poster, but at the event, will also be The Status Game II: Dashboards and Gages which is about how people connect with others.

A short but good chapter on Wonderland (among other oddities) in Carl Swanson's Lost Milwaukee WorldCat; Amazon; Milwaukee Independent; OnMilwaukee. It skews toward parks and attractions like entertainment and infrastructure along the rivers and Lake, rather than the architectural/built environment, but lots of fun stuff. Cheers, Carl.

For lost architectural gems in Milwaukee, pre-historic (lol) preservation, you'll want Yance Marti's Missing Milwaukee, WorldCat; GoodReads; RadioMilwaukee; OnMilwaukee.

Then there's always the obligatory selfish plug for my prewar apartment buildings map for anyone who gives a shit.

The main reason Milwaukee annexed westward like this (leaving the city boundary to appear like fingers) was to reach out to the overall goal of annexing into Waukesha County. Read "Greater Milwaukee's Growing Pains", it's a great book.

Second this as well. John Gurda is one of the most well-known Milwaukee Historians.

For a college class focused on Milwaukee we read John Gurda's The Making of Milwaukee and Patrick Jones' The Selma of the North, which as you guest it, talks about the civil rights movement here in Milwaukee.

Both are quick reads that are easily available and relatively inexpensive. If you live in this city and want to know more these are two great places to learn about the history.

If you want to bone up on the subject I recommend reading Selma of the North and watching Vel Phillips: Dream Big Dreams

We're also in the middle of the 50th anniversary of Fair Housing Marches, there are events going on if you are interested in learning more in person.

Hi there! Local independent author here. I will be reading from and signing my second book, Moving Forward, at Sugar Maple. This will take place on Sept 19, from 7-9pm. Free event, and books are $10.

A bit about my book: After my high school sweetheart committed suicide, I went on a series of road trips following the last band we saw together for about a year. I wrote a book on this--the physical and mental journey I went on during that year (

I've recently written a follow-up to that book, which is a series of essays on the mental journey I went on after this physical journey was complete. More information on what I'm doing here:

I will be reading an essay from this book, and if you're into it, there will be an informal chat on overcoming hardship, being open about mental health, and questions on the resources we have within the city.

Hope to see you there!

Pain, like everything in life, is impermanent. The notion that it is permanent is what is daunting. Once you accept that this situation, like every other in your life, is temporary and will come to pass, it will be a lot easier to deal with.

I don't have any delusions about reading a book curing you, but it might make it easier. Read this:

I have Cream City Chronicles but haven't read it yet. It looks good though!

"A resistant dolomite layer crops out at the bottom of a stone stairway leading down from a refreshment building near Picnic Area 5 and forms a low waterfall in the river. One layer in the rock here proved ideal for making water lime, a cement that would harden even underwater. Unlike the Silurian dolomites, just enough shale is associated with the layer of Devonian limestone to make high-quality cement. For thirty years, beginning in the 1870s, an important cement industry occupied this site, but the Milwaukee Cement Company quarries, crushers, and huge kilns were long ago replaced by a green park."

This what they use as textbook in college photography courses. Get used one or earlier edition on eBay to save some money.

u/slowjamsmke · 2 pointsr/milwaukee

Also be sure to check this out. I read it years ago and just bought my own copy recently.

This is the book, it is fiction for kids even. What a joke of reporting.

Here are some links for the product in the above comment for different countries:

Link: tortilla press

u/skatastrophy · 2 pointsr/milwaukee

Do you need them for a restaurant or something?

Otherwise just pick up a tortilla press and start knocking those mothers out on your own. You won't believe how easy they are!

If you are at all interested in the topic of housing, consider reading Evited by Matthew Desmond. The book chronicles the stories of people living in the poverty and their struggle to find housing, and it takes place in Milwaukee.

u/ArmenGilliam · 5 pointsr/milwaukee

This book sums it up well: What people have said is spot-on, but this goes in-depth about the Walker recall and why people in the state can hate Milwaukee (and Madison).

> I know it is used in many situations that deal with kids around the same age (rich or poor, white, black or purple) but when it gets the loudest, it's being used as an excuse for really terrible things.

I agree, however... it seems that most often the accusations of treating children like adults to dealt to people of color (note: this is the first time I mention race on this entire thread). And my first reply to this post was essentially that comment. When kids of color do awful things, people tend to burn them in effigy. This issue is captured well in a book (its a little dated but very good) by Jay MacLeod that shows society has outrageous standards for the behavior of minority teens, while similar behaviors of white teens are see as "boys being boys" and/or "rehabilitation is needed" rather than simply locking them up.

I agree this excuse is used when horrendous acts are done. But as I've said again, these kids are essentially raised this way. If not by their parents and family, by those in the neighborhood they look up to. Last night I sat in on a hearing of two students fighting. The mother of one of the students was there, she was less mature than the students who were fighting. The daughter... in my eyes...see this behavior as normal. And not fighting is the abnormal means of handling things. I know this isn't armed robbery, but it a sample in socialization.

My overall point was that is we truly want fix this, we need to stop simply locking people away and/or shooting them, and simply saying "this is a bad individual". People on this thread are telling me "they" as in the black community... we live in the same society! We need to start saying "our society is dysfunctional and we need to do something about it". If we don't this will continue. It won't just fix itself.

> This kid has a serious criminal record and has no doubt run across his share of social workers and interventionists.

Your jaw would drop if you saw how lacking the city and state are in social workers. Just this week the federal government cut a grant to social workers who help rehab teens.

I'm sure if this kid were in my classroom. My mind would label him as bad/toxic. I would assume he would drag others down who think who he is is appealing. I would try to intervene, but I would guess they would fail.... most of the time they do (sometimes they don't). They see me as a white man from a different world, while they have countless facets in their social spheres that pull much more weight than I ever can/will.

> In both situations, no amount of money is going to change them.

Though I believe people can change, I will be the first to say it's hard and uncommon. But the root of the problem is how they're socialized. I do believe money (in the sense of a valuable living standard, not rich) it the root of that problem. People with realistic, and valuable goals and dreams usually don't behave this way.

> For those raised in poverty, it means they may no longer be poor but that doesn't mean they will suddenly be different.

No but if they weren't raised/socialized that way, the problem wouldn't be as such. The widening inequality gap means this is going to conintue, and it's getting worse.

> Money is only a small part of the problem.

This is where we disagree. I think it's the ultimate root of the problem that it the chain reaction to all the other major issues. Are there anomalies? Certainly, but they are far from the norm.
