Late Night on a Pier

It was a dark and gloomy night, the air thick like soup.  The lights carved a path out onto the pier, guiding my steps to a destination lost in the fog…

Lost in the Corn

Fall 2013 Film1-16

Another image shot on my Nikon FM for a film class.  I found this old tractor seemingly abandoned in between corn fields.  Such a shame for this classic to be wasting away in a field, as though it had been put out to pasture.

Afternoon Paddle

Afternoon_Paddle

In June of 2012, Duluth experienced a rainstorm that was one of those “once in a hundred year” events.  My basement ended up with several inches of water which damaged some my photography equipment, including the telephoto for my Nikon FM film camera.  It had a fine coating of silt that would have cost more to repair that the lens was worth.  But, rather than throw it out, I decided to shoot a roll of film with it and see what would happen.  As you can see from the image, it adds a slight gauzy effect, making the scene sort of dreamlike.  Although I don’t shoot film as often as I used to, I plan to keep the lens in my bag and think of it under the right circumstances.

Hands in the Window

In my last Monochromia post I made reference to a photo of the door window, so I went looking for it.  The window was higher than I could see from ground level so I did my best to line everything up by using live view on the back of the camera.  All the black spots on the rear window are flies, there were hundreds of flies in the shack.  My photography instructor had a thing for flies, he loved this image.

The Old Fishing Shack

This shack is famous along the north shore of Lake Superior.  I’m sure it has been photographed hundreds, if not thousands of times.  I know I have captured it in various lighting conditions, different seasons and a very strange close-up of the window on the door.  It involved flies and a reflection of my hands.  If you are ever on the north shore, head up the scenic highway and look for a street sign for Stoney Point Rd.  Besides the shack, there is also some great ledge rock that, under the right wind conditions, can produce some fantastic waves that crash against the rocks.  It’s also a popular spot for surfers.  That’s right, I said surfers.  You would be surprised by how many surfers live around here and surf the inland sea.

Spirits After The Fire

After a fire swept the island on Seagull Lake, located in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, these spirits seem to be rising out of the stoney ground to take flight across the sky.

A Moment Alone

I love this shot of my grandson walking ahead of us along the pier, his posture alluding to a thoughtful frame of mind.  Also, there are the leading lines created by the late afternoon sun, the geometry of the pier and a relatively calm Lake Superior.

The Sentinel

Standing against the rhythms of nature, a lone sentinel braves the actions of the inland sea.
