Downtown Chicago through the rainy window of the L train. Somewhere between 35th/Archer and the Western stops.

I have driven miles upon miles upon miles and have seen such beauty all over the state of Michigan. I've taken so many photos and don't even know how to start culling all of them to determine which to share with others. My two weeks here is coming to an end as I leave tomorrow. Thankful.

I'm currently halfway through the mitten on my way to the Upper Peninsula to photograph this bridge; 125 more miles straight up US route 127. Four hours each way in the car makes for a long day but I'm believing it'll be worth it. The journey is just as meaningful as the destination.

I just had to stop on the side of the road and take a corny photo.

Adventuring and exploring Michigan with my sweet Aunt Shelley today. Lake Michigan is so beautiful. Wisconsin is out there somewhere on the other side. Also, if you look close enough, can you see the anchor in the cloud formations? Such a great day.

Tonight is the paramount paradigm of how most every summer night should be; great baseball game, beautiful sunset, a good drink, and a temperature of 75° to relax in.

I spent about two hours wandering around downtown Battle Creek today. The Heritage Tower was just looking so good this afternoon and I had to get a photo.
