Abstract Fire Tower Bell

Capturing the Shadows, Lines and Strength

I wanted to capture this impressively beautiful and elaborate old fire bell tower as an abstract fire tower bell print in black and white. I am not one to shoot and turn a print into black and white, unless I see the shadows, lines and strength before I take the shot. This fire tower drew me in and immediately I saw the strength to use black and white to capture those bold shadows and lines.

Where is the Tower Located?

The fire bell tower is located on the shores of Marquette, Michigan and just as she stood there weathering the test of time, I also wanted to capture her boldness and strength.

What Was It Used For?

The fire bell was used to alert the village that there was a fire, back in the day. The city built a large brick foundation to proudly preserve and show off her strength and history. 

Hopefully, you will agree that I captured the bold strength she shows in this abstract print.

Bairds Creek Green Bay Early Spring

Bairds Creek Green Bay in early spring.  Early spring; the snow has melted and the creek is running fast. The rebirth of the year.  All the plantlife and animals are waking up from their winter’s nap.

The creek flowing is one of the seasons first promises that spring is truly on it’s way.  Let my path walking and hiking adventures for the season officially commence.  Bringing the promise that plenty of nature will be caught on camera this year.  The excitement awaits.

Enjoy this short video.  I am not an excellent videographer. Matter of fact, my teen told me I have much to learn and practice.  No plans on breaking out into the video business. Thinking we are all safe.  I enjoy sharing little pieces and parts of what I see.  Even if I stink at it.  I’m sharing.  I shall take the free advice given by my teen and build from it.  Maybe, I shall get better.

Toft Point for an Afternoon Hike

Toft Point for an Afternoon Hike

Greetings! Hope I find you well. Today, was an interesting day for me. I got a chance to drag my husband out to Toft Point for an afternoon hike. A break from the normal and sometimes boring walking trails that I walk. Truth be told; right now there is not a whole lot going on where I walk. I’m rather bored with the day to day walks.
