Sunday was a beautiful evening to capture the super moon. It rose just before the sunset and the light over Lake Michigan was beautiful.
Fireworks Free Hand
July 3, 2015 at Kewaskum park. A good show. I don't use tripod anymore. The green work appeared just in time for some slow camera movement. It danced across he whole shot. what fun. 4 of July is my favorite holiday.
On Golden Pond
Or, rather On Barton Pond. A morning sunrise just before the cold snap. Exactly as it looked like!
MERRY AND HAPPY AND PEACE
I won't be able to view CW for a few days and wanted to wish everyone on CW peace-filled holidays.
No sunrise on Friday at Port Washington. So I hung over the railing to capture these pilings. I like the empty space around them.
SPIRIT OF THE RIVERS, 2
This second photo is of the face of the elder, showing the way forward to the travelers. The artist, Skip Wallen, is just starting to put the clay on the styrofoam mold and the fine details are beginning to emerge. The 3 figures, when complete, will stand about 18 feet tall. The monument will be the focal point of an already beautiful Mariner's Trail, along the lakeshore and will capture your heart and spirit.
SPIRIT OF THE RIVERS
This is Spirit of the Rivers, in process. When completed it will be a Bronze Monument honoring the American Indian Cultures of the Great Lakes and will be located on Lake Michigan, half way between Manitowoc and Two Rivers on Memorial Drive. There won't be anything like it in the state and as photographers, you'll be drawn to it. My friends, Carol and Dan , are instrumental and passionate about bringing this sculpture to fruition and have allowed me to photograph it in process. From time to time I'll update you on the progress. Today I am uploading this view and another. I hope you'll follow it's development over the next year or two.
Just before sunrise at Cave Point. It felt very dreamy to me and the weather that day was still warm. ( The time should be 5:50 am taken on Sept. 27, 2014).
Hush, little baby
This is my first try at baby photography. I learned to take along a lot of towels. Have the baby fed, peed and pooped and use a heating pad to keep the baby warm. Then find some good natural north light. I tried different backgrounds : white (blah), brown (popular but ho hum), pink (now we're getting better) but then I threw in this red brocade fabric at the last minute and this beautiful baby just popped right out of the camera it seemed. What fun!
