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.

Grand Island Michigan Ice Curtains

Grand Island Michigan Ice Curtains Video
(Pictures to Music)

A few winter’s ago off the shore of Sand Point in Munising, Michigan my daughter and I walked across the icy channel of Lake Superior to see the Grand Island Michigan ice curtains.

It was a once in a lifetime trip for me because of my fear of walking on frozen water.  Although, maybe this is the experience that has changed the tides.  I have went ice fishing with my husband now.  Amazed he has got me out on the ice.

You can read about the day HERE.
