After a few hours in front of the computer reading stuff while it was sunny and warming up outside, I pulled myself away, grabbed my camera, and went to Belle Isle. The main point was to get a new photo of the William Livingstone Light at the east end of Belle Isle in the Detroit River, which I did. It is unusual in that it’s constructed out of marble. These days, it also seems to be obscured from ships by the tall trees between it and the river, but maybe the light shines through.
I also met a very friendly German shepherd dog who excitedly bopped me in the face with his nose (what a sweetie!), and saw what may well have been a golden eagle fly by while I didn’t have my binoculars. (D’oh!)
Yesterday’s lighthouse trip led me to remember a lighthouse from the 1998 trip up north that I thought I photographed pretty well but had yet to scan in and post. The print I had was very blocky in the shadows, and I didn’t think I could get any detail out of them, but it turns out I’ve been learning some things and the scan turned out pretty well. This one is Seul Choix Point lighthouse near Gulliver, in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
