I love photography. Always have, always will. Although I’m still saving up for a decent camera, I have taken a few gems that I’m pretty proud of. I prefer scenery photos and artistic photos personally. Only filters used in the following pictures was converting some of them to black and white.
This one was taken of South Haven Pier in South Haven, Michigan. It was of the varying shades of the sky and lake as the sun set, but I found I liked it better in Black and white.
Tahquamenon Falls State Park in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. To be a true Michigander you have to travel to see the falls in the “UP”. This was our own version of Niagara Falls. Great place for hiking and scenery.
John Ball Park Zoo is one of my favorite places in Grand Rapids, Michigan. It’s not the biggest or most extravagant zoo by any means, but it felt like home … as much as a zoo can feel like home. It brings back memories as far back as I can remember. This trip in particular was on a hot summer day and this bear was just chilling in the water, resting his head on the rock.
Mackinac Bridge, Michigan. This five-mile long bridge that connects Michigan’s Upper and Lower Peninsulas was first opened to the public on November 1, 1957. This is such a staple in Michigan that it baffles me to think that this bridge wasn’t there when my parents were born. The day I took this picture it was around 75 degrees and windy and the water was cold as hell. Just like Lake Huron always is; cold, crisp and fresh.
