Bay City – City Hall

20130329-165524.jpg
I love the architecture of these old buildings, the workmanship shows so much attention to detail. This was processed in Snapseed as a sepia tone. This old City Hall building is being renovated. Glad it’s being preserved and not demolished.

Senior Recital

20130328-162218.jpg
My daughter, Amanda performed her Senior Recital last Sunday. It must have been more than coincidence that her performance was on Palm Sunday, the day we celebrate and remember Jesus’ Triumphant arrival in Jerusalem. This performance of Amanda’s was her Triumphal Swan song for her college career at Saginaw Valley State University. I know I am a biased dad, but Liszt, Chopin, and Rachmaninoff never sounded so beautiful. Amanda looked beautiful and poured her soul into each piece she played, it was amazing. Truly one of my proudest moments as a dad. Well done Amanda! Now on to the next chapter…
This picture was taken while she was warming up.

Old vs New a Tale of Two Farms

20130314-215914.jpg
Driving through farm country today I was enjoying the beautiful sunshine and blue sky. I came upon this old farm house amongst a plethora of wind turbines. Technology has come a long way since the day this house was built. What was once perhaps a dairy farm with livestock such as cows, horses, chicken, pigs, sheep, and goats; is now a wind farm with no live stock and from all appearances, no human inhabitants. If only houses and walls could speak, what tales they would tell.

Winter

20130306-210707.jpg
What a beautiful ,sunshiny, day we had today. With temperatures near 40 degrees, Spring was in the air… or at least the hope of Spring. I saw this barren tree on the frozen, snow covered shore of Lake Huron. The blue sky provides a beautiful backdrop for the lacy branches of the tree. It is still winter, but Spring is just around the corner.

Small Town USA

This is the main intersection in Peck, Michigan. So small is this Villuage, there isn’t even a traffic light, only a 4 way stop with stop signs. There is a Post Office though.

Worship with Family

One of the beautiful stained glass windows at our church, Faith Lutheran Church, Bridgeport, Michigan. I enjoy spending worshipping in The Lord’s house. It was especially enjoyable today as we had the whole family together.

Castle Museum Saginaw

20130301-132642.jpg
I was working in Saginaw today, and when I stopped for lunch I took this picture of the Castle Museum in downtown Saginaw. Once again, I used Snapseed and dynamic light and postprocessing this photo to add special effects that I believe enhance the photo from its original.
