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.
