Easy Chair

The artwork of Off the Wheel Pottery of Egg Harbor, Wisconsin is not just contained within the buildings on the grounds. The buildings are interesting as well as this chair out front. The peninsula of Door County is an artists haven where even some of the roads are designed by artists.

Off The Wheel Pottery

This is a pottery shop in an old barn in Door County. In fact, it is spread through this barn and a number of sheds on this old farm site. My wife likes to come here and shop while I walk around photographing the grounds. The owner makes her own pottery and displays everything in […]

Bond Falls

Northern Wisconsin has been my second home since I was 4. Over the past few years I have tried to see something new and Bond Falls was on my list. It did not disappoint. Spectacular Bond Falls, a Michigan Scenic Site, is located on the Middle Branch of the Ontonagon River, 10 miles north of […]

Upper Bond Falls

This is the upper part of the amazing Bond Falls in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Water cascades through a long series of minor falls before it pours over massive boulders on the lower section. Bond Falls is a waterfall on the middle branch of the Ontonagon River, a few miles east of Paulding in […]

Empty Suit

The sculptor, Erwin Wurm, calls this Big Suit but I like Empty Suit better. Wurm chooses everyday objects as the subject of his work in an attempt to inspire viewers to question both the traditional definition of sculpture and their relationship to the world. Big Suit, plays with our perception of volume, one of the basic elements of […]

The Door of Return

Sculpture in St. Louis’ City Garden. The egg-shaped form at the top of the door resembles a seed that has just split open or a mouth that opens to the sky, like a baby’s first cry. Artist Kan Yasuda has left the answer deliberately ambiguous, leading us to think about time and space, life and death, the past […]

City Garden

Fountain in St. Louis’ City Garden. This area is full of interesting sculptures, water features and lighting. This is one of those fountains that is always changing and at night, the lighting adds another dimension. Located in the central downtown area it is fun just to pass through it while going from one event to […]

Little Traverse Bay

Take a walk on the very exclusive Harbor Point and you will see many scenes like this. This is Little Traverse Bay with the town of Harbor Springs on the other side. Known as “Up North,” the area has scenic towns and open farmland. The clouds are a little threatening due to a series of […]

The Gate

This is a gate to a private beach in an area of Harbor Springs, Michigan called Wequetonsing. This is a line of beautiful cottages along the harbor. One morning during an early morning stroll, as I was taking photographs like this, a man ran out of his cottage shouting: “are you a photographer?” I told […]

Old Barn

This is just off highway 39, north of Bloomington, Illinois. Driving from Rockford to St. Louis, I kept seeing these very scenic old barns and finally found one that was easy to get to. The scene is great but the clouds make the photo!
