These were taken in or near the park behind the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. It was my first day there leaving me very jet lagged.  I helped the guy fix his bike.  The chain had jumped off the sprockets.

My travels through Northern Michigan continue.  Up here they make a big deal about being near the 45th parallel.  It is halfway between the North Pole and the Equator, numerically.  In the winter it probably feels like the North Pole, and in the summer, neither ever had it this good, with the high temperatures in the low 70’s.  Traverse City is at the South end of a bay between two peninsulas jutting North into lake Michigan.  The Old Mission Peninsula to the East features the better wineries.  To the West is funky shopping and little restaurants.  I would have to guess these peninsulas were formed by receding glaciers.  The name “traverse” comes from the water voyage between the tips of the two strips of land which the French called the grand traverse.

I toured Michigan for two weeks in August of 2012. A few days were spent in Dearborn.  There is one photo from the Henry Ford Museum of a steam engine. From Dearborn I motored North to Traverse City and the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Recreational Area. The dunes are spectacular and some are steep. In one place climbers descend about 1,000 feet (300 M) to the lake with no way to return but to climb back up. There is a fee for rescue. The view of Lake Michigan from that spot demonstrates its vastness. It looks more like an ocean than a lake. Traverse city sits on a narrow bay and is a favorite destination of young families living in the Midwest. Next I went to Mackinac Island where horses substitute for cars. The trip ended in Ann Arbor where I photographed…

Most of us think of Hawaii as a place of lush color, but I found a few shots from my last visit to Maui that would work well in black and white.
