Morning fog in the yard

I like the peaceful glow of the morning fog.  I took this picture with a film camera to capture the deeper part of my yard fading from view with the softer image quality attributed from film images.  The distant glow is framed by the subtle tones of the trees and grass closer to me, and Hugo sticking his head through the deck spindles.

Hessel Marina at dusk (3)

Hessel Marina at dusk (3)

After taking pictures of the town from the dock, I turned around and saw this beautiful view of the Hessel Marina gazebo, the outer docks, and the vivid reflections.  The day’s final glow along the western horizon was quickly giving way to the night.  The sky was crystal clear and I could see Venus to the left of the gazebo.  An animal, possibly an otter or a mink, swam by just below me.

A quiet evening on the porch

A quiet evening on the porch

We sold the house so this is one of the last times I’ll be able to sit on the front porch and enjoy the quiet and the beautiful view of Hessel Bay.  It was a chilly evening but I just put on my heavier jacket.  A few breaks in the clouds at dusk let some post-sunset light peak through on the horizon.  The golden porch light gave a warm softness to the porch rails and overhang.

The cows made me smile

The cows made me smile

Leaving Sault Ste. Marie, I drove down the eastern coast of the UP because I hadn’t experienced it before.  Beautiful homes, beautiful views of the straits and Lake Nicolet until I reached a point where the roads forced me to head inward.  I happened upon a field at 15 Mile and Riverside where the cows were relaxing in the mid-afternoon grass.  I stopped to take their picture.  And something about the scene and their attitude and how the black one watched my every move and almost seemed to be posing.  It made me smile.

Evening relaxation

Evening relaxation

A quiet summer evening at home in my chair, Macy asleep on my legs.  While relaxing there I tried some indoor pictures with a Praktiflex IV film camera.  I like the serene light and softness the film gives this scene.

Doves four

Doves four

I put bird seed out every morning and the doves tend to feed after the blue jays, woodpeckers, and squirrels have taken the sunflower seeds and peanuts.  These four just seemed to be relaxing on the deck rail on this chilly Friday morning.   I liked how the two on the left resemble opposite bookends, and the two on the right are also looking in opposite directions, just further apart.
