bailey 1

A truck crosses the old Valley Inn Rd bailey bridge last winter before it was closed to vehicular traffic. The familiar rumbling sound of the boards whenever a car drove over them was a comforting old timey sound to many people.

an electric morning


"I never saw an ugly thing in my life:
for let the form of an object be what it may
- light, shade, and perspective will always make it beautiful."

Without these compass points, it might be hard to tell that you were facing SOUTH at Spencer Smith Park during a very foggy day last week.

from the beach

The blush of dawn may yet restore
Our light and hope and joy once more.
Sad soul, take comfort, nor forget
That sunrise never failed us yet.

fog bound


It was very foggy here on Friday, so I ventured out to capture some of it. It broke enough to get a view of the promenade bridge at LaSalle Park, but not much beyond it.

in remembrance

war memorial

They went with songs to the battle, they were young,
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted;
They fell with their faces to the foe. ~ Laurenc Binyon

a Grand view

Another bridge over the Grand River. I took this view of the bridge while waiting for the heron to do something other than just stand there…. another shot of the heron can be found here
