Climb the tall tower and you feel like you are on top of the world with a bird’s eye view.

Happy as a Clam

Happy as a Clam at Sugar Creek

Last Thursday afternoon I got a text from my husband asking if I had plans for the night.  He was asked to go walleye fishing after work.  I replied, nope.  No plans, but go I’ll make some now.  It was a very warm day and we had an extreme amount of rain earlier in the week, so I knew the creeks would be running. Late in the day makes a wonderful time to play in the water happy as a clam with a tripod and camera.

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.

White Star Psychic Church Brussels Wisconsin

White Star Psychic Church Brussels Wisconsin

Today’s topic is going to be a little different.  Something I normally wouldn’t write about, nor would I endorse.  And, SOME may even call me a little crazy for exploring; The White Star Psychic Church Brussels Wisconsin. But life is about experiences. Sometimes, walking in someone else’s shoes helps to understand and relate to someone else. We need this in life.  Who knows, you may even gain knowledge, understanding, peace and even comfort in an unlikely place.  Like this church has done for me.

Where Was It Photographed:
This dwarf iris was photographed in Door County last summer. The Door County peninsula, on the lakeside, grow this iris during the late spring and early summer.  I love to go and hunt them down.

 

If I ever get around to getting my old photo files from previous computer (the hard drive is completely dead) I will upload additional pictures.  If not, there is always hunting them down next year.

Visit to Sturgeon Bay Lighthouse

Visit to Sturgeon Bay Lighthouse

Today calls for a visit to Sturgeon Bay lighthouse and the guys hunting grounds.  

My best friend’s mother passed away two weeks ago, on Monday. A high school friend, last week. Then, I read something on Facebook and it triggered a whole world of thought. Of course, a healthy dose of photography therapy was needed.

Door County Cherry Blossoms

Door Country Cherry Prints

I took a ride up to Door County, Wisconsin a few weeks back to take in the sights of the cherry blossoms blooming. We liked the fact the peninsula was a little less of a hustle and bustle during the spring. It gives you a chance to spend some peaceful moments with the surroundings, before the busy summer crowd invades the peninsula.

Sturgeon Bay Wisconsin at Night

Sturgeon Bay Wisconsin at Night
Purchase

All summer my daughter and I have wanted to photograph Sturgeon Bay Wisconsin at night.  Our schedules never seem to line up, and if they did; the weather would not cooperate.  We decided at about 8:30 pm, it was now or never.

This is the last night before her first day back for college. Rain was in the forecast within fours hours time.  We had to get moving or this wasn’t going to happen at all.
