When I passed this location, I stopped, moved back and forth knowing there was a composition to be captured. I finally opted for a viewpoint that showed a jumble of lines and shapes. Also, I think the two posts in front create a bit of tension but, they do then lead the eye into the image to discover the other shapes.
Knowing that today was the last day before the bitter cold arrived and was planning to stay for an extended visit, I grabbed my camera bag and headed out. My goal was to find the spot where there was open water on Lake Superior. The open water line was at Stoney Point, which is a little over 20 miles from my home in Duluth. At Stoney Point is an old fish house that is a favorite of photographers from everywhere and I have photographed several times. The seasons, the sky and the lake all add to the backdrop of the old structure and each person finds a unique perspective when they visit.
The Glensheen Mansion is a popular stop in Duluth for those wishing to experience the history and grandeur of Lake Superior living. On occasion the grounds and buildings are opened to the public for free for photography events. I made my first trip this morning to scout it out and capture a few images.
A slightly different take on the Duluth Aerial Lift Bridge.
While enjoying another artist’s work, I couldn’t help but notice the alignment of the two structures.
Evidence, what once was, is no longer.
Bits and pieces of one and the other.
It’s as though nothing else exists. Hard concrete reality fading into nothingness.
