It’s a snowy and cold morning in Indianapolis and I sat down at the computer this morning and had some fun playing. Sometimes you just have to do it. Here’s the result. Nothing special just a fun effect.
This ship is no longer in Saugatuck where the image was taken. It was a landmark there for a long time. A year ago the ship was moved to a new loaction where it will be restored and opened as a museum. I have always had fun shooting this boat and have a lot of good images of it. This one I like because of the symmetry and the way the light plays on the hull.
A number of years ago I decided to head out for a weekend adventure up the west coast of Michigan. I thought I would shoot sleepy little villages and lighthouses. As I was driving up the Blue Star Highway I saw this ship off to my left. I stopped and shot it and have been doing so until last Summer when they took the ship to Canada to refurbish it and make it a museum. I also discovered a wonderfully peaceful town there Saugutuck. This is an artsy village with bed and breakfasts places, galleries and a unique charm. Put it on your must visit list.
There was this big old steam ship sitting at a dock as a tourist attraction in Saugutuck, MI. The ship has since been moved to Canada where it will be restored and become part of a ship museum. I have shot this location a number of times. The elements of the ship and the old lifeboats have given me plenty of good exposures. This is the anchor and I like the strength and colors.
I love wandering different antique markets, stores and wherever else looking for the unusual. What I find is usually something rusty and maybe colorful. This was at a small antique store near Saugatuck MI. I used my iPhone and shot this with Hipstamatic. Tight cropping and colors work.
Every now and then I like to switch things up a bit. I visited the Tulip Festival as I try to do every year in Holland , Michigan. This year it was not so great, cold, rainy and most of the tulips had already lost their leaves due to an early spring with warm weather. None the less I found this guy in a flower box in town. Color and rain drops as well as the flowers behind make it work. Good way to start the day.
I was having with my iPhone on a recent trip to Saugatuck, MI and stumbled upon this abandoned hotel. Each door was painted a different color. Someone with some imagination could thell this property had potential. I did some overall shots and panos but this shot floated to the top. Simple, the growth out from, door not centered. It just works.
