Working Harbor

Duluth, in Minnesota, is a working harbor.  Ships not only come from various parts of the Great Lakes, but also Europe.  One of the chief exports from the port is grain and there are several grain collection and storage sites that line the harbor.  After awhile, one can begin to spot the difference between the “lakers” and the “salties”.  Wherever they are coming from, I never tire of seeing the large ships traverse the canal and pass under the Duluth Aerial Lift Bridge, nor do I tire of the sound of the ship’s horns as the arrive and depart and the response from the bridge.

Lost At Sea

As I worked on this image I found myself almost getting a little seasick.  The churning, roiling water, the light and dark spaces, it brings up one of my greatest fears…drowning.

Question Everything

While searching some older images for an upcoming project, I came across this shot from several years ago.  It seems appropriate at this time to question so much of what we see, read and hear.  The danger sign, for me anyway, fits also.  So much happening, the country  highly charged, there is danger in many places.  Yes, we must question everything and seek the truth of what we see, read and hear.

Crop Circles

After my last post “Looking Down” crop circles were mentioned.  As a matter of fact, I did see some.  And, I may have found Pac Man.

Flying always presents a new perspective on the landscape of our world.  Flying over patterned farm fields shows that even farming has it’s artistic side.

Fuel

The fuel that drives any camping trip that I’m on.  It’s the first thing that gets started in the morning, it’s a hand warmer on cool mornings, it’s what powers cooking breakfast and loading the gear for the day.

Criss-cross

As I sit in the booth waiting for a radio call from a boat wishing to enter the slip, I’m often drawn to the merging patterns of the bridge and convention center across the street.  On the water it would be confused waves, here it’s a lot of interconnecting lines going every which way.

For Your Safety…

This tractor has history in our family, my uncle has kept it running for more years than I can remember.  It may not be new and shiny, but it still runs and still does what is needed in the apple orchard.  Now that my aunt and uncle are turning the orchard over to another generation, I wonder what it’s future is.

A Moment of Contemplation

To find a place that allows for a bit of solitude, to have a moment to gather in the beauty of all the nature that surrounds person, to just bask in the grandeur of a place on the shore of a fresh water sea.  This is such a place.
