Smithsonian exhibit

Hales Corners

I thought I'd update with a quick photo before I head off to Florida for a few days!

With Hales Corners being no larger than a couple square miles, you might never guess the community is now host to a traveling Smithsonian Institution exhibit, "Between Fences." A group of fourth-graders from Hales Corners Lutheran Elementary School took a trip to the Stahl-Conrad Homestead yesterday and checked out the exhibit with their curious eyes and wandering hands.

No matter how dark a room may be, there's always a patch of light to be found. Fourth-grader Claire Ungerecht happened to be in the spotlight. I shot this photo at 1/60 of a second, f.28 and 500 ISO. I rarely will go over 500 ISO — with the camera I use, photos get extremely grainy when I go any higher.

The exhibit is free and open to the public through Dec. 15 from 5 to 8 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays and noon to 4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
