Sometimes, well, lots of times, it’s fun to look at the world a bit differently.

Staying Out of the Puddle
Just turning the world upside down…
Waiting For the Ships to Return
As the ice clears from Lake Superior, the ships can begin moving back to the ore docks to load iron ore pellets, also known as taconite. (Unless it’s Tuesday, then it’s taco night!)
This image was captured on my Nikon FM film camera. I photographed the negative with my full frame DSLR and imported into Adobe Lightroom for initial editing, then into Photoshop for inverting. The image on the left is pre-invert, the right, post invert. I am having a hard time deciding which I like better. The reflections on the negative version seem to pop more but, the detail of the docks stand out more on the inverted version. Your thoughts…
Down By The Lake
In winter, Lake Superior creates with ice. Whether it’s by flinging it up on shore with gale force winds or simply by letting the surface freeze, something wonderful will result. On this particular day the sun was absent and the air was hazy, this spoke to me as perfect for monochrome imaging. This set of images were taken from the shoreline at Leif Erickson Park in Duluth. By the way, if you want to wander around the shoreline, bring ice grippers.
Two Shot Stop
A closer view of the reflections in the water. I find it myself mesmerized as I fall into the patterns. Just another wonderful stop on the October Road.
Perfect blue sky, perfect still water, create a mirror that reflects the autumn colors in a small lake along the October Road.
In A Place Stranger Than The Last
What seemed like a perfectly normal place is transformed by a shift of perspective and a twist of the camera.
Not Sure what’s up; or what’s Down?
A good reflection can go either way.
