Michigan has some beautiful and popular places to visit but the journey to your destination can be filled with interesting and majestic places along the way. I have seen many photos of the big green bridge, Tahquamenon falls, pictured rocks, Sleeping Bear dunes and sunsets over lake Michigan. I have several photos myself and love visiting all those places. Some of my favorite and most interesting photos are the ones I have taken while visiting those spectacular and famous places. It’s the less known places I like to photograph, especially when you get off the main road and travel the back roads through the small towns and villages in Michigan. You find some fascinating places and things if you just look for them. There are times I get in my jeep and just go with no particular route in mind. I have this crazy theory that there is something interesting on any back road in farm country or trail up north thru the woods or even in the middle of downtown in any city or village in Michigan, so I am just driving around to see what I can find and photograph them.
I love the posts. I look forward to the new page and the facebook one. You keep me connected to the images of home, since I live in Tennessee now.
I’m doing the same thing in my adopted state, Arizona. I’m originally from MI, so I enjoy your site. Love the photos – the art of photography. It’s not the same as “just going out and taking a few pictures.” So far I’ve only shared my photos with friends on FB, but I’ve thought about starting a site like yours, showing some of the ghost towns, ruins, desert vistas and mountain lakes that AZ has to offer. Great work! Thanks for sharing..
Martha, as Nike says just do it, get a free blog an start taking pics, and continue working at improving and you will. its been a fun and rewarding project. there are lots of great stuff to take pics of in Arizona
Love seeing these old homes. Thank you for sharing!
Hi Mike, I’ve been reading your blog since 2015. I had a friend that was from the upper most part of the lower peninsula. He also had a cabin in the UP. He sent me a picture of an old red double decker bus(looked British) that sat off on the side of a road. Not sure exactly where. Have you in any of your travels ever come across this bus? Unfortunately my friend is no longer with us for me to ask. I was just curious if you may have ever seen it. I truly enjoy reading about all the amazing places in Michigan. I hope to visit 1 day soon.
The only double decker bus that I know of is in front of a hotel in Midland. I don’t remember seeing on in the Upper peninsula
