Day 206 – The Little Church in the Woods

The Little Church in the Woods, Ogemaw County Fairgrounds

One thing I really enjoy when visiting the Ogemaw County Fairgrounds, is the Historic Villiage. This is The Little Church in the Woods located in the villiage, right as you enter it. I was able to go inside the church and shot a couple photos of things that caught my eye. I arranged them into a montage in Lightroom 4. I really like this effect, as you can tell with some of my other posts. This church is constructed from logs, and really is a nice place to worship our Lord. Nothin fancy, just a few pews, an organ, a pulpit/podium, a piano, and the presence of The Lord. That’s all we need right?

Day 201 – Mechanical Bull


Wow, I didn’t know they still had these… not since I lived in Houston, many years ago, have I seen or even heard of a Mechanical Bull, let alone witnessed any riders. Well, you never know what you might see at Bike Week, and this proves it. Not only one rider, but two riders at the same time! Well, I guess if you’re a biker, you can ride anything. They sure looked like they were having a good time. 🙂

Day 200 – Sepia Antique Building

In between shooting events at Bike Week, I wandered through the Ogemaw Fairgrounds in search of, a photo opportunity other than a motorcycle theme. Well, I do love old wooden buildings, and I do know where to find some on the fairgrounds. There is a nice little village that has been reconstructed with lots of old buildings. I really like the hinges on this old barn door. I debated whether or not to upload in color, the combination of rust and wood made for great textures, I decided on sepia tone. I like the tone and the antique mood it brings to the photo. We finally had a break in the heat today, it was much more tolerable being outside. Yesterday was unbearable, but somehow we made it through. Then it was back to the arena for Flat Track Racing, and more dust and dirt.
