The Arch On The Edge Of Forever
Photograph - Digital Photograph
Everytime I walk through this arch in the park near our home on Milwaukee's East Side, I think of an old TV show. And some of you may have guessed which one just from the title of this blog post. (Geeks.) The entrance to the Rotary Centennial Arboretum is quite magical, especially for being in the middle of the city. There are no visible man-made objects other than the stone archway. No wonder I think of otherworldly TV shows when I'm there.
For those that haven't figured it out, the TV show is Star Trek. And the particular episode is the Harlan Ellison penned, "The City on the Edge of Forever." (Yes, I am a geek.) It is arguably the best episode of the original series. I guess it is appropriate too that I'm shooting something Trek-like on it's 50th anniversary.
So, if you are ever in Milwaukee, make sure to visit the arboretum and the stone arch. And if you haven't seen it (even if you have!), do yourself a favor and watch "The City on the Edge of Forever".
