Lower Ore Dock Marquette Michigan
The lower ore dock in Marquette Michigan is a good place to stand during the early eve. A pastel coloring consumes the sky for an area that is most certainly a sunrise location over Lake Superior.
Da Yoopers Tourist Trap
Da Yoopers Tourist Trap in Ishpeming, Michigan. My photography travels are experiences. Exploration and if you can grab a few laughs along the way … memories are made. Nobody can ever take away your experiences. Everything else can be stripped away in a heartbeat. Your memories and experiences cannot be taken from you. Unless you suffer from dementia – and then you have picture proof 🙂
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.

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.

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.
