Photos of the Beauty found in Michigan

Images capturing our beauty

As I travel about the state and while I walk about at home, in the Blue Water Are, I see so much beauty. For me, this is really a personal experience. In the busyness of work, kids, school, crazy schedules I find great value in noticing the beauty, the tranquility, the moment. I know that the beauty of the earth was created by our Father in Heaven.


Realizing that not all we deal with in life is the Ruin Porn of Detroit, but that  life, light, laughter should be mingled in each day as well (or should be!) is important to being a happy person. I look for moments and I capture them with my camera--any of these images can be made into prints either on film paper or as a Giclee print on 100% rag cotton paper.

This design is just for all my art friends who teach at HFS:SCS--you know who you are! I cannot say how great it is to teach with great artists and educators.
