Older shots from my yard & Matthaei Botanical Gardens.
I hope you enjoy looking at various views of nature because I plan on posting many leading up to the Thanksgiving Holiday.
I am not able to name the cemeteries I photographed but know one is simply the gate from Yerkes Cemetery in Northville, Michigan. I believe the other two at the top of the crosses are from a cemetery somewhere around the Traverse City area in Michigan. All the others were taken in a cemetery in or around Calumet, Michigan. Two of the figures looked terrible the last time I was up and took these shots. Here’s an example from years before in black and white.
So hard to believe just another week until November! Less than a month until Thanksgiving and the Holiday season begins. Autumn is just not long enough. Nothing is ever long enough when you love it so. I sit through the cold winter to welcome spring and then swelter through summer until the welcome autumn chill cools it down again.
That being said, I didn’t forget Halloween. Though I don’t celebrate it anymore, those around me still do and I still have many fond memories I will share very soon.
I’m sure you could crop regular photos to appear more panoramic but I used to have a cheap camera that did this. It was so expensive to develop the photos I stopped using it & sold it at a yard sale. Not to mention the practicality of this size picture. The finished size, without enlargement, is approx 3″ x 10.” I finally got around scanning these so I could post them. I hope they upload in a manner that enhances this effect without much cropping.
A few from Greenfield Village in Dearborn Michigan during the fall.
The remaining photos are of a trip my friend & I took to Wilcox Lake in Edward Hines Park located in Wayne County Michigan to get some reflective fall colors in the lake. Please click on each photo to enlarge.
There are many different kinds of trees. Family trees, shoe trees and actually two kinds of those now. There are tree diagrams and also the kinds of trees that I think of right away when I see the word tree.
Coming soon to a woods near you!
