"Why are there people like Frank? Why is there so much trouble in this world?"
Okay, I was taking my dogs for a walk along a stretch of the Milwaukee River. Far off the beaten path, after walking past 2 areas blocked off by police crime tape, I came upon the lovely scene in these pictures. A baby doll, that had clearly been in the river, hanging suspended in a tree.
The three movies that immediately came to mind were The River's Edge, Blue Velvet, and Child's Play. I looked around for a human ear or a body or something else to complete the scene. But all I could see was rushing water, river trash, and nervous geese. I took a couple of quick pictures and headed back to the car.
Milwaukee's underside is definitely not a place for the faint of heart. Kind of makes you wonder about the kind of people that frequent dirt paths along the river -- including myself. Jeffrey Beaumont would probably start a more detailed investigation, but I think I better get back to work.
