We had beautiful weather for Kaylea’s Senior photo shoot this evening. Here are a few of the shots that we took. We were on location at the Bridgeport Bridge, Bridgeport Historical Society, Gugel Bridge, and some studio shots. Kaylea was a great sport and Elisa was a very good lighting assistant. Together we made a great team. Thanks Kaylea and Elisa.

Day 37 Saginaw River

What a beautiful day to drive by the river.  I stopped by the Panda House in Saginaw to pick up dinner.  I decided to bring my Nikon D300S, just in case, the lighting was really nice this evening just before the sunset.  This time of day is sometimes referred to as the golden hour.  It also occurs in the morning just after sunrise and provides beautiful lighting.  I love the golden glow of the sun shining on the concrete bridge, and the rail and lamp posts running off into the distance.  There were gray clouds, but they enhanced the scene.  This is the Holland Street Bridge which crosses the Saginaw River.  It wasn’t our typical February day, in past years we would see this area populated with ice fishermen.  Today there were fishermen, but they were in their boats enjoying time on the river, in search of walleye no doubt.  I didn’t have to catch my dinner, just carried it out from Panda House, placed it in the truck and that shot a few frames before heading back to eat dinner with Amanda and Vicki.

Day 14 Gugel Bridge

Somebody or something beat me to the Gugel Bridge this morning

I was out running a couple of errands this morning and on the way home, I decided to stop by one of my favorite places in Frankenmuth, the Gugel Bridge.  Note the spelling , it’s different from the search engine website.  The bridge crosses the Cass River and is a foot / bike bridge.  This is the first time I’ve visited the bridge in the winter.  I love the combination of wood and steel, along with the woods and water of the Cass.  Today was especially nice with the beautiful blue sky and puffy white clouds as a back drop.  My only regret was the tracks in the snow, I really love seeing fresh snow.  These were tracks from an animal, and as I looked over the bridge, I warmed to the idea that a man made object could be helpful for one of God’s creatures.  We hear so much about how much damage man does to the environment and wildlife, it’s refreshing to think that this bridge opens new territory for the little creature that used it to cross over to the other side of the frigid Cass river.  Man and nature in harmony!  I love it.
